Pesticide Exposure Found to Lower Intelligence
Pesticides, ubiquitous among not only the food supply but farms and homes worldwide, have been found to be creating lasting changes in overall brain structure — changes that have been linked to lower intelligence levels and decreased cognitive function.
Despite these findings, they are continually touted as safe by the profit-hungry chemical industry.
That’s right, this is a chemical that is not permitted to be used in your home, though it is perfectly fine to spray on your food. What the researchers found was that women who had higher levels of CPF had children with ”significant abnormalities” in brain structure compared to mothers with lower exposure levels.
Toxic exposure during this critical period can have far-reaching effects on brain development and behavioral functioning.
The findings will certainly cause a ripple in the pesticide industry, though the larger issue is why this pesticide is being used in your food after it was banned from being used indoors.
If the pesticide is damaging by simply being used in the same living space as human, how could it be considered safe to put into your body?
