Pesticides are any toxic substances that are used to purposely kill or shorten the life cycle of certain living things that we deem nuisances or pests. The most popular pesticides target weeds, insects, fungus and rodents. Pesticides can come from natural sources, but the most widely used pesticides are synthetically produced. Most large, high-yielding farms use pesticides regularly, and many of these pesticides are chemical compounds that are toxic to both humans and animals. Pesticides are not only toxic to the targeted pest but to other life forms as well, including humans.
