Artemio,50 years old, applying pesticides at the tobacco fields. He is applying a mixture of chemicals that include Methamidophos. If his body absolves more than a gram of this substance, he would be in danger of loosing his life.Normally these chemicals are prohibited, but in these fields it is still being used and it is used without proper care.The poison can be absorbed through the nose, eyes, mouth but even more by the skin.
Mr. Artemio has been doing this for almost 40 years “Yes, I have skin problems, they hurt, my hands hurt the most”
