AVIA TERAI, CHACO, ARGENTINA - NOVEMBER 2012: Nadia Leguizamon (R), 12, suffers from progressive encephalopathy. She is pictured at home, where she lives with her sisters Maria (L) and Estefania, and mother Maria. Their whole family is in direct contact with agrochemicals, as their house is continuously affected by aerial spraying of the fields, located just 500 meters from their house. The Avia Terai community is constantly affected by this fumigation from aircraft and crop dusting machines which do not abide by the legislation in force, and act in complete impunity and with the consent of the authorities. The products used for the spraying are glyphosate, 2.4 D, endosulfan and chlorpyrifos.
