Fundacion Vivo Sano shares contribution to the Pesticide Action Week

Every year there are about 220,000 people worldwide who die of the consequences of pesticides. This data from the WHO calls on us to reflect on the risks of these chemicals that are consumed on a daily basis by millions of people. As to inform the public about the risks and raise awareness of alternatives to pesticides, the campaign ’Pesticides Action Week’, an initial French initiative, was launched. This year, Fundación Vivosano and the Health Defense Organisation contributed and promoted the campaign in Spain.
