    @GremlinBrenneman – U.S. EPA’s website likely provides the kind of information you are looking for. Here is a link to their webpage, “Overview of Risk Assessment in the Pesticide Program”, which outlines their processes for evaluating both ecological and human health effects: http://www.epa.gov/pesticides/about/overview_risk_assess.htm.

    If that doesn’t provide the answers you are looking for, they also have “Available Information on Assessing Exposure from Pesticides in Food: A User’s Guide”: http://www.epa.gov/fedrgstr/EPA-PEST/2000/July/Day-12/6061.pdf.

    If these resources do not answer your question, please submit another question here: http://gmoanswers.com/ask-your-question.

    I have to wonder how we know what is a "safe" level of pesticide for a human to ingest. Are the half life of these chemicals in humans well established enough that we know a "little" pesticide won't accumulate over time and become "significant"?
