According to the ADA's Hunger and Environmental Nutrition Group, public health costs associated with pesticide poisoning and cancer are estimated at $1.1 billion per year. For adults, exposure through diet has been linked to infertility, Parkinson's, testicular cancer, birth defects and much more. More than one million children in America age five and under ingest at least 15 pesticides daily. Early exposures are suspected in the sharp rise in health problems including autism, obesity, asthma, brain cancer and other childhood cancers.

The EPA has documented that synthetic nitrogen fertilizer runoff leaches into drinking water supplies, and groundwater contamination has been found in all 50 states. Synthetic fertilizers contain forms of nitrogen that can break down into nitrates that threaten human health.
