Abstract
The study investigates the health implications of prolonged exposure to pesticides on soybean spray farmers in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh. The research was conducted in three districts, focusing on the use of Thiamethoxam and Novaluron pesticides. The study involved 120 male participants aged 18-45, categorized by exposure duration (6, 12, 18 months) and a control group. The results showed that pesticide exposure, particularly for 12 and 18 months, correlated with increased health complaints, with skin-related issues and respiratory problems being prevalent. The study also investigated the impact of pesticides on soil microbial activity, finding that all pesticide types, except Thiamethoxam, Novaluron, and Indoxacarb, significantly reduced CO2 production, indicating their toxicity to soil bacteria. The study also highlighted the need for ongoing monitoring and environmental assessment. The study emphasizes the interconnected impact of pesticide exposure on human health, soil microbial activity, and water quality. It advocates for increased awareness, protective measures, and the transition to bio-pesticides and organic farming to promote environmental and human well-being.
