A study “Organic diet intervention significantly reduces urinary pesticide levels in U.S. children and adults " (The Organic Diet Intervention Significantly Reduces Urine Pesticide Levels in American Children and Adults) A peer-reviewed comparison of pesticide levels in the bodies of four families across the country on a non-organic and organic diet.
It shows that the pesticides in their bodies decreased as much as 95% in one week on an organic diet. The study by Carly Hyland a, Asa Bradman, Roy Gerona, Sharyle Patton, Igor Zakharevich, Robert B. Gunier, Kendra Klein, found pesticides associated with cancers, autism, learning disabilities, infertility, Parkinson's, hormonal disorders and more in each competitor.
No one should be exposed to toxic pesticides in the food they eat. And no farmer should have to sacrifice his health or the health of his children to grow the food we all eat.
As one of the mothers in the study said: "We all have the right to organic and clean food."
Study Conclusions: An organic diet was associated with significant reductions in urinary excretion of various pesticide metabolites and parent compounds. This study adds to the growing body of literature indicating that an organic diet can reduce exposure to a variety of pesticides in children and adults. Additional research is needed to assess dietary exposure to neonicotinoids, which are now the most widely used class of insecticides in the world.
Previous dietary intervention studies indicate that an organic diet can reduce the excretion of the pesticide metabolite in urine, however, they have largely focused on organophosphate (OP) pesticides.
There are gaps in knowledge about the impact of an organic diet on exposure to other pesticides, including pyrethroids and neonicotinoids, which are increasing in use in the United States and around the world.
