Indian region bans Endosulfan

This article was originally published in Foodnews

KERALA's government has banned the use of the pesticide Endosulfan in the Indian state due to the disastrous effects on health attributed to aerial spraying of the chemical on cashew plantations, The Hindu reported. Use of Endosulfan in the state, particularly in the villages of Karasgod district, has been linked to deaths and acute health problems in residents. Aerial spraying of Endosulfan was suspended in Kerala as early as 2001, but the chemical was not banned outright.
