One More Reason to Go Organic...Our Children's Health

I just read in Health Day that even though the pesticide Chlorpyrifos was banned in 2001 for household use, it is still being used in agriculture on fruits and vegetables.  Oh did I mention that Chlorpyifos affects kid's mental and motor skill development? There's one more reason to go organic huh?  

That's right according to a study published online March 18, in advance of print publication in the May issue of the American Journal of Public Health, high level of exposure to the pesticide Chlorpyrifos (greater than 6.17 pg/g in umbilical cord blood at the time of birth) was associated with decreases in both the Psychomotor and Mental Development Index Scores in 3 year old children. 

We have to do something to stop the exposure of toxic pesticides on our future generations and I want you to take action today.  First, be sure to spread this message by sharing this on Facebook or Twitter.  Next, watch the short video above and take the call to action.  You know we really can make a difference.
