Does pesticide food poisoning cause cancer?

Pesticide food poisoning in particular does not generally lead to cancer. However, certain pesticides do lead to cancer. Most of the cancer-causing pesticides are illegal in the United States. But, in undeveloped countries the rules are more relaxed and these pesticides are sometimes used. These pesticides can lead to cancer, birth defects, and nervous system and endocrine system damage. This is why you should take great precaution in reading the food labels to see what is included in the food and where it comes from.
