Pesticides used in agriculture accumulate in organisms and reach man through complex metabolic pathways. Accurate analysis of pesticides presence in each step of the food chain is necessary because of the high number of thes sbstances, their potential toxicity and the presence of amplified toxic effects due to synergic interactions. In the same way it is necessary to evaluate the environmental effects of the whole pesticides cycle, from industrial production until final disposal of used containers and residuals. Furthermore recent introduction of new categories of chemicals which are not strictly classifiable as pesticides (photosynthetic activity stimulators, aesthetic aspect enhancers) and not yet sufficiently studied in their metabolic behaviour, increase the problem complexity. Complete studies about these complex problems and about the effects on ecosystem have not yet been carried out in Italy, due to ambigous laws and regulations, inadequate data collection methods and decisional influence of the chemical industry on agriculture policy.
