Protect Your Grandkids from This POISON

It’s the most ridiculous lie we’ve ever been asked to swallow.

Pesticide chemicals that are used in our home… or that are being sprayed on our food… kill bugs by the MILLIONS.

And we’re supposed to believe that they’re not harming us, too?

Meanwhile, many of the most popular pesticides on the market have been linked to everything from diabetes to cancer.

Now, scientists have just discovered another reason to stay away from pesticides.

Our precious grandbabies are at riskand pesticides may be damaging their brains.

Three independent studies from New York and California have all turned up the same results: exposure to pesticides can cause long-term damage to our grandchildren’s brain health.

That means more trouble learning to read and write… difficulties doing math… and even potential behavioral problems.

The two New York studies from Columbia University and the Mount Sinai School of Medicine evaluated more than 660 children from 6 to 9 years old.

For every increment of pesticide exposure in the womb, the children experienced a 1.4 percent drop in IQ and a 2.8 percent decrease in working memory.

A University of California, Berkeley study focused on 300 children in the agricultural communities of Monterey County and found that children exposed to pesticides experienced an average 5.5 drop in overall IQ scores.

In fact, children with the highest level of prenatal pesticide exposure scored an average of 7 points lower on a standardized IQ test than those children with low levels of exposure.

And it’s really no surprise.

Lots of the organophosphate pesticides used on our foods were originally developed as nerve agents!

The real travesty is that this stuff was made available to the public, in the first place.

You see, these pesticides were sold on supermarket shelves until the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finally stepped in and banned them from residential use.

But these bans do not affect agricultural use.

In fact, there are more than 30 organophosphates currently registered for use in the U.S., and many are applied to conventionally grown citrus fruits, grapes, nuts, broccoli, strawberries, and blueberries.

Even worse? Environmental Protection Agency Director Scott Pruitt has plans to reverse the residential ban altogether!

The best way to protect ourselves and our loved ones is by avoiding pesticides in our homes, and adhering to a strict organic diet.

Buying “pesticide free” food may cost a little more… but it’s worth it in the long run.
