According to research recently published in the Environment Health Perspectives, pregnant women who are exposed to organophosphate pesticides have a very, very high probability of having kids who suffer from ADHD.

The study tracked Mexican-American women in Salinas Valley, CA who were exposed to high levels of pesticides and then diagnosed their kids when they were between 3 and 5 years old. The results were not good and also not in the least bit surprising.

A few notes on this.

1) Just because you don’t work on a farm doesn’t mean that you won’t get exposed to pesticides. Conventional food is full of them, as Kellogg’s can attest to with its claim that GMO food is safe.

The reason Monsanto and others design GMO seeds/food is so that they can sell farmers the corresponding pesticides.

2) It is very important to give young kids organic food as well. Their bodies are not developed yet and cannot produce the enzyme that detoxifies organophosphate pesticides.

We must continue to fight the politicians, USDA and multinational companies who insist on feeding us chemical-laden food that is harming us. And, the fact that this administration has put into office people like Islam Siddiqui shows that we must continue to push this cause every single day.

One of the best way to do it is to vote with your wallet.

    Hi Stephanie,

    Thanks so much for this information and resource. I assume that this person encourages mothers to eat organic and avoid all pesticides as well.

    Thanks again.

    Live well,

    Hi Max,

    I am including a link to my friend and colleague Julie Matthews, CNC in SF.

    She has been helping parents for close to 10 years with getting pregnant
    who had trouble getting pregnant. She had a natural baby 11 months ago
    at 39 and she was told that it would be unlikely that she could.
    She and her website are a wonderful resource.

    Be well,
    stephanie
