Well, what do you know, a new study in Pediatrics reports (via CNN) HERE: "Children exposed to higher levels of a type of pesticide found in trace amounts on commercially grown fruit and vegetables are more likely to have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder than children with less exposure, a nationwide study suggests."
The possible culprits are called organophosphates. Where's all the talk about genetics, better diagnosis and diagnostic substitution? The sick part is that organic mercury used to be a pesticide but was found way too dangerous and banned in the 1970s -- but not before (based on our reporting HERE at Age of Autism) it helped trigger the first cases of autism. So what do the public health authorities do with it now? They inject it (via flu shots) into pregnant women and babies in the US and in a wide range of vaccines in developing countries around the world where, you know, the next generation really needs extra damaging. It's a mad, mad, mad, mad world. -- Dan Olmsted.
