Learning objectives: 
  • Developing world countries, especially in agricultural areas in Central America and Asia, have disproportionally high rates of suicide using pesticides.

  • Commonly involved agricultural pesticides with lethality include organophosphates, carbamates and photosystem inhibitors such as diquat and paraquat.

  • Less restrictive regulation of highly toxic agents means dangerous compounds are more likely to be accessible to more people with mental illness or children.
