Zaunbrecher coauthored a 2016 report on the health effects of cumulative pesticide exposure. “The big takeaway here is that we know very little about how they [pesticides] interact with each other,” she said. Yet multiple pesticides are applied to the same crop, and people are exposed to multiple pesticides on their food.
According to the limited research available, Zaunbrecher said, it seems the pesticides can interact to become more harmful. “It makes me uncomfortable to have that much uncertainty about it,” she said.
The Cocktail Effect and Other Dangers
Professor Philippe Grandjean of the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health agrees that the mixture is likely to be harmful. “Animal studies looked at individual pesticides with completely different effects and mechanisms,” he said. “Each of them, individually, did not cause any sign of toxicity. Then when given together, toxicity developed.”
He concluded, “We are seeing that the cocktail effect is real.”
EWG’s “dirty dozen” includes strawberries, spinach, nectarines, apples, peaches, pears, cherries, grapes, celery, tomatoes, sweet bell peppers, and potatoes. Its “clean 15” includes sweet corn, avocados, pineapples, cabbage, onions, sweet peas, papayas, asparagus, mangoes, eggplant, honeydew melon, kiwi, cantaloupe, cauliflower, and grapefruit.
