Pesticide Exposure in the womb linked lower IQ scores in school aged children

Three new studies link exposure to pesticides in the womb to lower IQ scores in children when they reach school age.  Know any PREGNANT women? You might want to share this information with them and let them make their own informed choices.

Link to New York Times Article

In a nutshell, a scientist compares these findings to those related to exposure of children to lead done in the 1980's.

If this isn't a good enough reason for you to consider refraining from using pesticides at all times and/or from consuming foods grown using pesticides, at the very least, inform women who you know are pregnant to research for themselves and consider organic or pesticide-free fruits and vegetables during the term of their pregnancy.
