As a parent, I want to give my child every opportunity available to grow into a healthy adult. I read them books before bedtime, keep an eye on the television programs they're watching and make sure they get their fruits and veggies. And then I heard about Chlorpyrifos.

"Chlorpyrifos is a toxic pesticide that is commonly used in conventional agriculture and widely found on fruits and vegetables." -  Miriam Rotkin-Ellman, Scientist

Do I have your attention yet? I sure hope so! Because the effects of this pesticide is far-reaching.
