Pesticides and neuro development
You have read an article by James Hamblin, The Toxins That Threaten Our Brain, which described neurodevelopmental effects of several chemicals. Among these was the pesticide chlorpyrifos. You also read a commentary in Environmental Health Perspectives that described three articles on organophosphate pesticide exposure in utero and child neurodevelopmental outcomes. These are pesticides which continue to be used and to which we are all exposed.
