Nine Disorders Linked to Pesticides

Organic food is becoming more and more mainstream as concern grows about the health effects of pesticides.  While you are probably concerned about pesticides, you might not know exactly what their hazards are.

Here are nine serious health conditions that recent research attributes to pesticides.

  1. Poor physical development.
  2. Poor neurological development.
  3. Dementia and Parkinson’s disease.
  4. Depression.
  5. Cancer.
  6. Diabetes.
  7. Respiratory problems.
  8. Retinal degeneration.
  9. Menstrual and fertility disorders.

To cut your family’s exposure to pesticides take a few simple steps.

First, choose organic produce whenever possible.

Wash non-organic produce thoroughly and peel it if possible, but be aware that some amount of pesticide residue may be absorbed into the food.

Up your tolerance to encountering the occasional bug in your home.  It’s far better to learn to live with a few bugs than to learn to live with a pesticide-related disease.Dr. Barbara Smith
