When pregnant women are exposed to moderate levels of a common pesticide, their children may experience lasting changes in brain structure linked to lower intelligence, a US study said Monday.

Interesting. I have also read that some pesticides (long time ago) can actually be linked to m/c and fetal demise or severe birth defects. I'd be willing bet that some of these links to brain changes/lower IQ are pretty accurate.

I hope that in the very near future, alternatives to harmful pesticides are found and used.
