Ask the UK Government to protect us from pesticide cocktails

Mixtures of pesticides commonly found in UK food, water and soil may be harming the health of both humans and wildlife.

Around a quarter of all food, and over a third of fruit and vegetables, consumed in the UK contain pesticide cocktails, with some items containing traces of up to 14 different pesticides. Pesticide cocktails of up to ten different chemicals are also found in UK soil and water with the potential to affect wildlife such as birds and bees.

A growing body of scientific evidence shows that pesticides can interact to become more toxic creating a ‘cocktail effect’. Despite this, we continue to test the safety of pesticides as individual chemicals.
