Mum’s exposure to pesticides reduces IQ in children 0

Pregnant women instinctively know to avoid toxic chemicals that might harm the developing baby, but would they even know they were being exposed to a dangerous group of pesticides called organophosphates now linked with reduced IQ in children?

Three independent investigations recently published in the peer-reviewed journal Environmental Health Perspectives (EHP) have reached similar conclusions, associating prenatal exposure to organophosphate (OP) pesticides with IQ deficits in school-age children.The fact that three research groups reached such similar conclusions independently adds considerable support to the validity of the findings.
