ALMEIDA, Mirella Dias et al. The flexibilization of the Brazilian legislation on pesticides and the risks to human health: analysis of Bill of Law 3,200/2015. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 2017, vol.33, n.7, e00181016.  Epub July 27, 2017. ISSN 1678-4464.

This article aims to contribute to a reflection on pesticides, based on the Brazilian legal framework, from the perspective of protecting human health and the environment. This initiative is due to successive attempts to flexibilize the regulation of pesticides in Brazil, through bills of law in progress in the Brazilian National Congress. An analysis of Bill of Law 3,200/2015 was carried out. This bill of law represents a major setback to the legislative achievements for the regulation of pesticides, in order to alert to the risks to human health from exposure to these products and aggravated by other similar proposals.

Keywords : Agrochemicals; Pesticides; Legislation; Environmental Health Surveillance.
