Using different dosages would greatly increase the number of needed experiments. There is no solution to the testing problem. Even the ingredients listed on pesticide labels as inert may not be safe for humans. 50 The human endocrine system is a complex network of glands and hormones that regulates many 38 Chapter 2 bodily functions, including growth, development and maturation, as well as the way various organs operate. The endocrine glands, which include the pituitary, thyroid, adrenal, thymus, pancreas, ovaries, and testes, release carefully measured amounts of hormones into the bloodstream that act as chemical messengers, traveling to different parts of the body in order to control and adjust many life functions.

At least forty chemical compounds used in pesticides are known endocrine disrupters, based on animal studies with rats, mice, fish, dogs, reptiles, and birds. Disruption can occur by halting or stimulating excess production of hormones or changing the way the hormones travel through the body, thus affecting their function. Sexual and reproductive abnormalities are among the harmful effects endocrine disrupters are known to cause. Although there is no proof that the harmful effects the chemicals are known to cause in other vertebrates cause them in humans as well, many scientists believe it is a strong possibility.

Industrial agriculture has greatly increased the rate of soil erosion (removal) and deterioration (loss of fertility), and many soil scientists and environmentalists are concerned.
