Human exposure to pesticides is a worldwide major health problem. In modern age, the uses of pesticides on crops and developed most dangerous diseases some of them are very harmful. Major use of pesticides on crops and direct exposure to them gives rise to neurotoxicity and also causes carcinogenic effect on human beings. A large number of research proved that pesticides have very harmful effects in both conditions whether chronic or direct exposure. In this review, we discussed about the harmful neurotoxic and carcinogenic effects of pesticides on human health. Farmers are more prone to neurotoxicity and carcinogenicity rather than consumers. But some strong pesticides like organophosphates and organochloro have powerful effects that resides in crops for too long and consumers intake them indirectly. Contact to these compounds during initial fetal growth can origin brain injury at doses much lesser than those affecting adult brain function. Hazards of these chemicals are so powerful that also causes damage to environment and through air human’s intake them.
