Findings on atmospheric agricultural chemicals in Wallonia now availableTuesday, 15 May 2018 13:31
The report, which over the period of a year analysed 46 various pesticides around 12 stations, spread throughout Wallonia, showed that mainly herbicides and fungicides were found.
Insecticides represent a mere 0.5% of substances measured. It seems that the doses breathed in are more intense within agricultural locations and in spring, from April to June.
The Walloon Public Service Science Institute (“ISSeP”) has been given responsibility for a further study to better understand the link between the exposure to pesticides and the potential effects on human health.
