Abstract

Acharya Sushruta has described Agadtantra as the branch of Ayurveda, which deals with bites of poisonous animals such as snakes, insects, spiders, rats, etc and their treatment and symptoms of different poisons, their combinations and their treatment.Increased popularity of herbal medicines has also brought concerns and fears over the quality, efficacy and safety of the raw materials including food and fruits. Now a days that some of the people but most of the foods contain highly contaminated pesticides residue on them., it may be due to inorganic cultivation of food and crops. Most of the fruits and vegetables bought from local market are loaded with chemicals and pesticides. These are primarily used by the farmers during the farming to save the fruits and vegetables from pests and harmful insects. Toxic residues of agricultural chemicals entering the human diet are of major concern today. Pesticides are very harmful to human health and it can cause serious illnesses and death in humans.
