Pesticides - The CHARGE Study." [Environmental
Health Perspectives, 2014 Oct;122(10):1103-9.]
Key quotes from the study:
"Gestational exposure to several
common agricultural pesticides can induce developmental
neurotoxicity in humans, and has been associated with
developmental delay and autism."
"We evaluated whether residential
proximity to agricultural pesticides during pregnancy is
associated with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) or developmental
"Approximately one-third of CHARGE
study mothers lived, during pregnancy, within 1.5 km (just under
1 mile) of an agricultural pesticide application.
Proximity to organophosphates at
some point during gestation was associated with a 60% increased
risk for ASD [Autism Spectrum Disorders], higher for
third-trimester exposures…and second-trimester chlorpyrifos [an
organophosphate pesticide] applications…"
"This study of ASD strengthens the
evidence linking neurodevelopmental disorders with gestational
pesticide exposures, particularly organophosphates…"
The pesticide spraying affects pregnant
mothers by raising the risk of neurological damage to their babies.

Honest researchers trying to find a

have no business being the target of toxic spraying. But they are.

United States who, along with a good PR agency, would like to file a
billion-dollar suit against the Florida Health Department and the
CDC and the FDA?
There are plenty of potential plaintiffs
