#1- Insecticide/Pesticide use in Latin America:
How big a problem is it and how does it concern health conscious gringos? There are many ways to measure pesticide use in a country.

So today we discuss everything you need to know about Latin crops and contamination…

And that fact greatly influences the upward and lateral mobility of people crappy Latin neighborhoods
