â¦in our bodies, for years;
â¦& in our environment, traveling many miles on wind, water and dust.
Whatâs On My Food? is a searchable database designed to make the public problem of pesticide exposure visible and more understandable.
How does this tool work? We link pesticide food residue data with the toxicology for each chemical, making this information easily searchable for the first time.
pesticides are a public health problem requiring public engagement to solve.
Use the tool, share it with others: we built it to help move the public conversation about pesticides into an arena where you donât have to be an expert to participate.
At Pesticide Action Network (PAN), we believe that pesticides are a public health problem requiring public engagement to solve. We want you to have the information you need to take action based on a solid understanding of the issues. Whatâs On My Food? builds on PANâs more than 30-year tradition of making pesticide science accessible.
