Poisoning Our Future: Children and Pesticides

poc-poisoning-our-future-children-and-pesticides

This book pieces together just some of the research showing how children are being born pre-polluted, affected by pesticides in the home, in their food, in the rural environment, even in schools — and not forgetting those hundreds of thousands of children born into poverty that are forced to work with pesticides in order for their families to survive. It examines evidence that children thus exposed face significant risks of birth defects, childhood cancer, Autism Spectrum Disorders, neuro developmental delays, asthma, middle ear infections, and other diseases. It also examines some of the mounting evidence that child exposures to pesticides may be a factor contributing to the explosion of adult diseases such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, other metabolic diseases, and cardiovascular problems, as well as cancer, neurological diseases and immune disorders.
