The problems with 'chemical pesticides' are: they are being made of increasingly toxic chemicals; the pharmaceutical industry continues to develop and invest in them rather than in natural solutions to pests (as used by (e.g.) organic farmers); substantial residues remain on and in the sprayed fruit and vegetables - even at the point of sale - so enter our bodies; more and more is used as the pests develop resistance; they are now used so heavily that they contaminate the land and rivers (as 'run-off'); they are now so toxic that crops have to be genetically-engineered to withstand the toxicity.

If you want wholesome, non-toxic food these days, the only way is to grow your own, or buy 'organic'.
