Common Consequences of Pesticide Exposure
Pesticide can be harmful in a number of ways. Along with tenants suffering from direct exposure by living on the property, pesticide can also be harmful to neighbors living nearby due to runoff. If you have been exposed to a dangerous amount of pesticide, you may suffer from the following:
- Coughing, gagging, and trouble breathing
- Chronic weakness
- Loss of muscle coordination or control
- Brain or neurological damage
- Uncontrollable muscle twitching
- Risk of birth defects
Side effects from pesticides can range in severity depending on the degree of exposure. However, if you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible.
