So now Dow will walk away from the massive pollution that they caused along Cancer Alley and allow the taxpayers to pay for or the citizens of that place to die from their better living through chemistry. http://www.ewg.org/kidsafe
10 Americans and the chemicals in their blood; excellent video!
"The peer-reviewed study found that the urine and saliva of children eating a variety of conventional foods from area groceries contained biological markers of organophosphates, the family of pesticides spawned by the creation of nerve gas agents in World War II.
When the same children ate organic fruits, vegetables and juices, signs of pesticides were not found.
"The transformation is extremely rapid," said Chensheng Lu, the principal author of the study published online in the current issue of Environmental Health Perspectives.
"Once you switch from conventional food to organic, the pesticides (malathion and chlorpyrifos) that we can measure in the urine disappears. The level returns immediately when you go back to the conventional diets," said Lu, a professor at Emory University's School of Public Health and a leading authority on pesticides and children.
Within eight to 36 hours of the children switching to organic food, the pesticides were no longer detected in the testing."

Jack, your home state tells all about you. Your from the land of fruits and nuts (all organic of course) and massive debt. Oh, did I mention Neverland.....Try and get the real facts without a liberal slant.
