Are current models of pesticide use and production conducive for sustained food production? Is the all-important rich biodiversity of soil microbial life being decimated? Are regulations that are designed to protect us from harmful toxic chemical exposures adequate? Are current toxicology risk assessment models out of date in the current climate of multiple chemical exposures? Most importantly – what can we do as individuals and a community.
