Pesticides and ADHD

Everyday Health ran a good article on pesticides and ADHD. Sure, we all want to eat a healthy diet full of fresh produce, so how can we steer clear of pesticides on producethat food? Most experts say buying organic and washing food very well before eating it is the best bet. A new study that will appear in the June issue of Pediatrics has shown a link between high levels of pesticides and ADHD. The study points out that ADHD is most probably genetic, but that being exposed to pesticides before age 6 increases the chances that the child will exhibit symptoms of ADHD.
