Organic, babies! The American Academy of Pediatrics is weighing in for the first time on the conventional vs. organic debate.
Its verdict? An "extensive analysis of scientific evidence," it says, suggests that kids who eat organic produce, dairy, and meat "have lower pesticide levels, which may be significant for children."
The pediatricians are worried because babies of female farm workers in California showed small but significant developmental and motor delays when their mothers were exposed to pesticides at levels similar to those deemed acceptable in conventionally grown produce while pregnant.
