Pesticides and your health
Lab studies indicate pesticides can cause serious health problems, including: infertility; birth defects, miscarriages and stillbirths; learning disorders; aggressive behavior; nerve damage; and cancer of the breast, prostate and lymphatic system. Vegetables and fruits aren't the only foods contaminated by pesticides. Factory farm animals eat feed full of pesticides, and these toxins accumulate in their flesh over the course of their lifetimes. When you eat factory-farmed meat, you're ingesting not only the pesticides from the flesh, but also antibiotics and hormones.
