Dano del ADN en trabajadoras bananeras expuestas a plaguicidas en Limon, Costa Rica


, : Dano del ADN en trabajadoras bananeras expuestas a plaguicidas en Limon, Costa Rica. Revista de Biologia Tropical 50(2): 507-518

Pesticide use in Costa Rica is very high and all year round. A high percentage of what is sprayed remains in the environment and in the living organisms around. This situation brings contamination and health problems to people in contact with them. The onset of adverse effects may be in the short or the long term, and symptoms vary widely, from headaches to cancer.
