(CNRS) French scientists led by a CNRS researcher have just revealed that eight succinate dehydrogenase inhibitor pesticide molecules do not just inhibit the SDH activity of fungi, but can also block that of earthworms, bees, and human cells in varying proportions. They demonstrated that the conditions of current regulatory tests for toxicity mask a very important effect that SDH inhibitors have on human cells: the pesticides induce oxidative stress in cells, leading to their death.
