Pesticides are heterogeneous and large amounts of chemical groups used to control and remove pests. Pesticides used in pest control have always been a source of concern for human life [1,2]. Pesticides used in different fields, pesticides are used in order to eliminate agricultural pests to produce agricultural products and to obtain a clean food source, and to control infectious diseases such as malaria and a significant amount of pesticides [3,4]. Human are exposed to pesticides in various ways. Food production of plant and animal origin, and through this production air and water contaminated pesticides reach ecologically. The circulation and accumulation of pesticides in the food chain leads to the formation of high amounts of pesticide residues. Since pesticides are formed as toxic chemicals for living organisms, their toxicity to human, non-target organisms and the environment can be determined by oxidative stress mechanisms [5-8]. Pesticides have greatly benefited human life by increasing the yields of agricultural products. The wide variety of pesticides leads to intensive use. Therefore, both pesticide applications and accumulation in the food chain constitute human health occupational and environmental risks. Exposure to pesticides can cause permanent health problems for human health. nerve, endocrine, immune, reproductive, renal, cardiovascular and respiratory systems and human health. Thus, exposure of the pesticide has been found to be linked to the development of human chronic diseases such as parkinson, alzheimer, cancer types, multiple sclerosis (MS), diabetes, aging, cardiovascular and kidney disease [9-11].
