yet another reason I grow all organic

Post  bpbdrummer on 3/16/2010, 10:37 am

our entire property is chemical free, we just deal with the weeds and the insects

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/03/100301151927.htm

ScienceDaily (Mar. 1, 2010) — Atrazine, one
of the world's most widely used pesticides, wreaks havoc with the sex
lives of adult male frogs, emasculating three-quarters of them and
turning one in 10 into females, according to a new study by University
of California, Berkeley, biologists.

many of our wells and waterways are contaminated with unsafe levels of
atrazine, and the chemical has been linked to reproductive effects in
humans

Many years ago, a small village in Mexico in the Yaqui Valley had a
major disagreement about whether to allow chemical farming in the
region. Half of the village decided to stay and farm with chemicals,
the other half moved up into the mountains to escape contamination.

A researcher from the University of Florida has been studying the
families for more than a decade. In 1999, she published a report
showing that the children in the chemical valley were unable to draw
age-appropriate pictures of people, due to neurological damage they’d
suffered. Now that these children are growing up, she has not only
found instances of early puberty, but also that the overly large
breasts of the young women do not contain mammary glands.


Similar studies done in India have found the same thing.
