- Two of the most vulnerable populations to pesticides are pregnant women and children under the age of 6.
- One study notes that exposure to certain pesticides in house dust may be equal to or greater than the exposure from food.
- Pesticides have been found in processed and other organic foods, just much less frequently.
I really appreciated this article because it has been on my mind to start buying more organic produce but I didn't know how important it was. I will probably buy more organic apples since Brianna (2 years old) is the one who eats those in our household. I will just have to play the rest by ear. Buying organic can be expensive but if you can cut down on other areas to make up for it, it could be worth it for your kids.
What do you think about the article? What do you think about buying organic in general?
