Don’t defile the land: a message as old as time

I always think its funny that people think Environmental protection and activism is a new thing. It’s a sentiment as old as the Bible.

Do not pollute the land where you are. Bloodshed pollutes the land, and atonement cannot be made for the land on which blood has been shed, except by the blood of the one who shed it. 34 Do not defile the land where you live and where I dwell, for I, the Lord, dwell among the Israelites.” Numbers 35:33

Why do we still have pesticides that defile both the land, ourselves and our families?

Do we just turn a blind eye because we can’t see the affects of these pesticides immediately with our own two eyes. Are humans just that bad judges of latent danger?
