In the childhood years, the brains are developing, the body systems are forming, the child is in a constant state of growth of vital organs to last a lifetime. Their small bodies consume more foods in relation to their body size than adults do. The amounts of pesticide residues that are deemed 'acceptable' by the government , are calculated on adults, not on children. This all seems a little overwhealming, but the truth is that with education, we have empowerment.
What next??? If going 100% organic is not possible for you now, try avoiding the top 12 containmated food, or better still try purchasing them organically. It is suggested that if you purchase these foods organically you will lower your pesticide exposure by a whopping 90%. ( Environmental orking group, October 2003).
To your good health
