    Pesticides linked to high risk of ADHD in children

    Exposure to pesticides known as organophosphates may increase risk of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder or ADHD in children, a new study suggests.

    Researchers tested urine samples from pediatric subjects and found that those with high levels of pesticides were about twice as likely to develop ADHD as those with undetected levels in their urine.

    Marc Weisskopf of the Harvard School of Public Health, co-author of the study and colleagues published their study in the journal Pediatrics saying there are about 40 organophosphate pesticides allowed to be sold in the United States.

    It's not a joke, and to seethe pain and anguish it causes parents, as well as the withdrawal and addiction that children go through with that poison ritalin, is not a pleasant site.
