Pesticides are biochemical compounds / mixtures of compounds intended to prevent, destroy, repel or mitigate pests. Pesticides can be classified according to the target organism, chemical structure and physical state. The most common distribution of pesticides is by purpose, that is, the organism they act on. During the production, storage, application of pesticides and waste treatment, significant damage to health, injury, minor and serious illnesses can result in death. Chronic low-dose exposure to these compounds has been shown to be a factor in the cause of various diseases of the nervous and immune systems. The eco-toxicity of a substance can only be considered if the relationship between dose and effect is known. The dose-effect relationship implies the existence of a 'threshold'. Through biochemical analyzes, ecology is trying to find the “answer” and the solution to the numerous problems of eco-crime that are increasingly engaging and surrounding us. Unfortunately, many of the problems of today are of human origin, the result of ignorance, noncompliance with health and safety measures at work. The design of future environmental events must take into account the fact that there is no way of knowing the future of certainty without including risk in the assessment
