Answer :

Pesticides are used to protect the crops from diseases. In this process pesticides mix up in the soil and water which are absorbed by plants. Producers are eaten by herbivores, and herbivores are eaten by carnivores. Man occupies the topmost level in a food chain as a omnivore, it eats plants as well as herbivores. The maximum amount of pesticide are accumulated at the topmost level of a food chain (biological magnification) and since human beings occupy the topmost level, the pesticides get accumulated in humans at maximum level which causes serious health issues.
