Pesticides are known for ruining the enviorment, leaking into lakes in residing in our food. So why should we keep pesticides?

So your citation is a bill before congress without any actual data behind it? Try citing a peer reviewed scientific paper from a trusted/esteemed source.

For even more persuasion, with a quick google search I immediately found 2 reliable sources, which proves that this is not coming straight out of common sense. (https://www.epa.gov... and https://serc.carleton.edu...) Also, there are healthier, more organic alternatives to store-bought pesticides, if you really feel like sticking to that pesticide "trend."

What side of the argument are you on? Your question asks if we should remove pesticides and you position is against that or con, so you want to keep pesticides. But then your argument for round 1 is we should not keep them. I think you messed up.
