Major Pesticides Are More Toxic to Human Cells Than Their Declared Active Principles

Figure 2

Differential cytotoxic effects between formulations of insecticides and their APs on HepG2, HEK293, and JEG3 human cell lines. The three described human cell lines were used in the conditions of Figure 1 and the results were almost identical. All formulations (solid line) are more toxic than their APs (dotted line); APs are slightly cytotoxic. SEMs are shown in all instances ( ).
