Never treated with pesticides, insecticides, herbicides or Genetically Modified Organisms {which are harmful to farmers, us the consumer, and to wildlife eco-systems}
In many countries, cotton is still hand picked; therefore anyone working in those fields is exposed to extreme amounts of toxic chemicals. 55 million pounds of pesticides were being sprayed on 12.8 million acres of cotton in 2003, according to the Organic Trade Association. These chemicals run off and contaminate the water supply. They are considered to be the most toxic chemicals in the world. The health risks of pesticide exposure include birth defects, reproductive disorders and weaker immune systems.
