In utero, as infants, babies & children absorb pesticides ten times that of adults.
Keep this in mind when your phobia of bugs prompts you to use pesticides in your yard & home.
Remember also that during pregnancy, pesticide and lawn chemical use will affect your unborn child.
Following are some links to articles I’ve written on pesticides and children:
Sevin Dust Illegal in Many Countries – Top Seller in The U.S.: Pregnant women should avoid exposure to Sevin dust because it can cause fetal abnormalities: cardio and pulmonary, nervous system development, spontaneous abortion, ADD in their child and a host of other difficulties. Additionally, women whose pregnancies fall between the months of highest Sevin applications – May and September – have the highest instances of fetal distress in development.
Your questions answered on Sevin Dust. It’s not the harmless chemical you think it is.
Are your kids helping in the garden? You may be exposing them to high levels of pesticides.
