98% of our fresh food has pesticide residue, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that there are traces of 29 different pesticides in the average American's body. Pesticide exposure can cause a range of neurological health problems such as memory loss, loss of coordination, reduced speed of response to stimuli, reduced visual ability, altered or uncontrollable mood and general behavior, and reduced motor skills. Other possible health effects include asthma, allergies, and hypersensitivity, and pesticide exposure is also linked with cancer, hormone disruption, and problems with reproduction and fetal development.
