Pesticides Linked to ADHD


We told ya so!!

For years environmentalists have been trying to point out that organophosphate pesticides [Malathion, etc] work by disrupting the neurological systems of insects, and therefore humans who consume it on foods are at risk of neurological problems.

And so it is!! Millions of kids with ADHD later, it is being admitted. It was kept quiet all that time, except by us environmentalists.

This shows negligence on the part of regulators such as the FDA. I wonder if Obama's new style of governing is allowing these cats to get out of the bag [as it should be].

These findings show that:
* "kids who have high levels of pesticide residues are 93% more likely to have ADHD"
and
* "for every 55% increase in residue in urine, there is a 10% greater risk of ADHD"

The younger the child when exposed, the more damage due to their smaller size being contaminated with the same levels of pesticides.

That is pretty damning evidence. The world is going to change, we have to stop using these poisons [which come from fossil fuel chemicals, by the way] or we will perish.
