Remember when the words in use were "weed killer"  or "herbicide" ?

 A news article from Brazil makes repeated use of a loaded new term:  agrotoxins.The article has a definite view. It  bemoans Brazil’s continued use of large amounts of asbestos, and various pesticides banned in the EU and elsewhere.  

The counter names/words? "Crop protection chemicals," as used here by a trade group apparently associated with the manufacturers of the chemical products.
