Florida farmworker at risk of pesticide poisoning

Pedro stands in a fernery just a few feet from his home in Pierson, Florida, “Fern Capital of the World.”

"They spray the fernery next to my house about once a week. I can smell [the pesticides] inside my house. It smells awful. They say it's not poisonous, but we know it's a chemical and that it's bad. I feel it in my mouth, nose and on my skin."
