In the United States, the US Environmental Protection Agency estimates around 10,000 and 20,000 agricultural-related poisoning and injury incidents occur through skin exposure and absorption. A growing body of evidence shows long-term health effects of pesticides, including neurological issues and some cancers. Special concerns are directed toward children whose pesticide exposure and absorption rates are greater due to their size and developing systems.
