When revolution goes wrong

Crop breeds which were developed in the Green Revolution require the use of chemical fertilizers containing nitrogen, which partially combines with oxygen when used to produce Nitrous Oxide (N2O), the greenhouse that you already know about.

These crops also required intensive use of pesticides, which as discovered later, lead to depression. Farmers using pesticides worldwide increasingly suffer from depression, and suicide rates are spiking. What was once believed to destroy only nervous systems of insects, turned to be poisonous to the very people who use it. This is one more reason to convert to organic – pesticides literally kill us by messing our brains up.
