Your child depends on you for her well-being, intelligence and IQ potential

There is growing concern on increasing incidence of childhood health harms linked to exposure to harmful chemicals particularly pesticides in the food, milk and dairy given to children.

Scientists have known for decades that infants and young children are most vulnerable to pesticides because of their underdeveloped immature organs. Immature liver and kidneys cannot remove pesticides from food when exposed. They eat and drink more relative to their body weight leading to higher dose of pesticide residue per pound of body weight. Finally, they totally depend on you on what they eat and drink and have no control over their environment.

The first three years of life is a period of incredible growth in all areas of a baby’s development. A newborn’s brain is about 25 percent of its approximate adult weight. But by age 3, it will grow dramatically by producing billions of cells and hundreds of trillions of connection, or synapses, between these cells.

Harmful chemicals that may be present in the food and drink can have detrimental effects on the brain development of infants and children that may be irreversible.
