Chemical-Free Food and Health
Originally published on agrecolandes.org/agroquimicos
We are a consortium of institutions linked to applied research and sustainable rural development. We work with urban and peri-urban families and rural communities, mainly with farmers who promote family farming in the Andean region. In recent years we have witnessed the increase in the use of agrochemicals and their harmful effects on the dimensions of human and environmental health. Moved by this concern and by the results of our own research, we compiled audiovisual materials from various academic and non-profit institutions in La Paz, Cochabamba and Santa Cruz that work to investigate the effects of agrochemicals. We make the collected material available for awareness and education purposes to different audiences.
