Eat Organic & Improve I.Q.
All three of these studies were published in the latest issue of the Environmental Health Perspectives Journal.
Read more about it at the NYTimes. Or, read each of the three studies themselves.
1) Prenatal Exposure to Organophosphates, Paraoxonase 1, and Cognitive Development in Childhood.
2) 7-Year Neurodevelopmental Scores and Prenatal Exposure to Chlorpyrifos, a Common Agricultural Pesticide.
3) Prenatal Exposure to Organophosphate Pesticides and IQ in 7-Year Old Children.
If you're not able to go 100% organic, be sure to look at the Environmental Working Group's Shopper's Guide and at least eat the "dirty dozen" organic!
