Leading scientists recently identified a dozen chemicals as being
responsible for widespread behavioral and cognitive problems. But the
scope of the chemical dangers in our environment is likely even
greater. Why children and the poor are most susceptible to neurotoxic
exposure that may be costing the U.S. billions of dollars and
immeasurable peace of mind. Forrty-one million IQ points. That�s what
Dr. David Bellinger determined Americans have collectively forfeited
as a result of exposure to lead, mercury, and organophosphate
pesticides. In a 2012 paper published by the National Institutes of
Health, Bellinger, a professor of neurology at Harvard Medical School,
compared intelligence quotients among children whose mothers had been
exposed to these neurotoxins while pregnant to those who had not.
Bellinger calculates a total loss of 16.9 million IQ points due to
exposure to organophosphates, the most common pesticides used in
agriculture. Learn what you can do!
