Scientist developed new skin gel that protects from some pesticides
21 October 2018 Current Affairs:

Indian researchers developed a gel which, when applied on the skin, can inhibit some pesticides from getting absorbed into the body. It thus averts serious adverse effects and even death.
Organophosphate-based pesticides, which are commonly used by farmers in India, are toxic to the nervous system and heart and can cause cognitive dysfunction.
When esters present in organophosphate-based pesticides enter the body they bind and inhibit acetylcholinesterase or AChE enzyme critical for nerve and muscle function. This causes neurological disorders, suffocation, paralysis, and even death.
