Pesticides on our food are more of a threat than ever to our brains as well as overall health. An estimated 16.9 million IQ points are lost among U.S. citizens annually as a direct result of pesticide exposure. What can we do to protect ourselves?

We'll discuss what the risks are and the steps to take to lessen your exposure.
