Exposure to pesticides is never a good thing, but science is proving that they could have a devastating effect on our ability to learn. Most humans have an average of at least 5 to 7 pesticides in their urine. While the pharmaceutical companies are enjoying the ever-increasing need for thyroid medications and prescriptions for ADD,  we are discovering that these diagnoses are caused by toxins in the blood stream.

One study, conducted by Elizabeth Guillette, Ph.D. and her team of scientists made a comparison to two groups of Mexican/Indian children who had similar ways of life and culture. The breast milk of one group was exposed to pesticide spray 90 times a year while the other half were only exposed to DDT spraying for malaria once per year.  The results of these offspring tell a story of how we are causing our own problems in society. After 4 years, the highly exposed pesticide group were noted to show the following tendencies:

Could not jump up and down very well

Poor eye/hand coordination

Less sociable and creative

Less stamina

Poor short-term memory

Behavioral problems, including irritability and aggression

Further, it is noted that since 1973, the test scores of Scholastic Aptitude Tests have fallen. Is there a correlation between these test results and increased pesticide use and exposure?

Everything in our society is susceptible to certain levels of pesticides (especially Tryclopyr) that end up in our food. Plants, fish and wildlife have all been tested and found to contain unacceptable levels of toxins from pesticides. It would only make sense to stop the poison instead of treating the symptoms.

Eat organic food whenever possible. While there is little that can be done to reverse the damage, future generations can have a better chance of being the brightest and best through improved human intelligence.

Over the past 50 years, I have been lucky enough to witness powerful changes in technology, nutrition, culture, and life in general, some good and some bad. Only from experience can you see the big picture of an evolving world. After getting past the excitement of frozen meals, furnishings made of plastic and the Internet, the reality began to set in. More illnesses, especially respiratory, cardiovascular and uncontrollable weight gain were becoming the normal conditions of society. Rewind 50 years and the answers are apparent. Hi. I am Kathy and this site was created to share ideas and educate others on how to live a healthier, more meaningful life. I grew up on a farm where we raised our own food and animals for consumption. We never had air conditioning or a microwave oven and I felt as though we were living in the dark ages. What I would give to go back to that time. I have been a professional writer for over 20 years and have always being drawn to the natural aspects of life. I also worked for a petroleum company for 15 years and discovered many facts about how this product impacts our world. Through years of research, it has become crystal clear that we are making our lives less enjoyable by taking shortcuts through unnatural, manmade means. There can be a happy balance and by learning where we went wrong, the best of both worlds is possible. After years in corporate America, I moved to a 3-acre mini-farm where I continue my research and writing along with my kitties, Lizzie, Shadow and BK and bulldog, Bux.
