The author comments on the proposed ban on pesticide use in Europe in 2008. He stresses that such restrictions may be implemented once the world is being well fed with adequate food supply. He claims that over the past 25 years growers have stopped using all of the really dangerous pesticides. He suggests that growers should be left alone, as they will only use pesticides which do the job required and at a level so that there are minimal residues.
