Abstract/Contents:Discusses different perceptions surrounding pesticides, stating that "the word 'pesticide' attaches unfounded fears to products that are as useful and beneficial to plants as 'medicine' products are to people." Mentions remarks on this subject made by Michigan State University professor, Joe Vargas, at the 1995 Reinders Turf Conference. Also states that "some in the media have unnecessarily scared the public through a lack of scientific understanding and accurate reporting."
