Pesticides & Flame Retardants Linked to ADHD

My husband saw this great article on Google News this weekend, and I had to pass it along to you.

Pesticides are proven neurotoxins, which means they are toxic to the nervous system- which includes the brain, spine, and eyes.

Check out the original article for yourself:
