The Regulation of Agricultural Pesticides in North Carolina: Implications for Migrant Farm Workers and their Families $43.00
Authors:  Kara M. Koehrn and Martha H. Keating
Abstract:
In North Carolina, pesticide exposure is one of the most pressing issues facing an ever-growing population of migrant farm workers. Of particular concern are potential adverse health effects for migrant farm worker’s children due to their disproportionate exposure. This paper reviews possible exposure pathways and health effects of pesticides on these children. It also discusses the current protections that farm workers receive under state law as well as the gaps in the law that leave this population and their families vulnerable. Finally, the paper concludes with areas that need improvement in order to create a more comprehensive system for protecting migrant farm workers and their families from pesticide exposure.
