The accumulation of carbamate and dithiocarbamate pesticides in vegetables, fruits, and water, as well as their health effects on humans, are summarised in this study. Pesticide production and use, which are widely employed in agriculture to improve food production, forestry, and public health protection, is expanding year after year around the world. Pesticides containing carbamate and dithiocarbamate are broad-spectrum pesticides used against organisms that have developed resistance to organochlorine and organophosphorus pesticides. These compounds are also frequently employed as a peptide bond substitute in medicinal chemistry, as well as a starting material, intermediary, and solvent in the paint and polymer industries. Intake of carbamate and dithiocarbamate contaminated food by humans causes endocrine disruption, disrupting steroidogenesis and thyroid function, reproductive abnormalities, lowers oxidative stress, increases the risk of non-lymphoma, Hodgkins and raises the chances of dementia.
