    Various human dis-eases such as but not limited to: ADHD, Parkinsons, Alzheimers and other nervous system and brain disorders because *BECAUSE and I cannot stress this enough--That particular chemical family directly interferes with the processing and uptake of Acetylcholine.

    In fact, like LSD, organophosphates are stored in the fat cells in animals, insects and humans. So it bio-accumulates readily.

    Stand by and I shall dig up some links regarding these issues.

      link between Parkinson's and pyrethroids. Link here, but you can find other references to his study.

      the scary thing is how many products on the shelves contain permethrin & pyrethroids, and how many people use them thinking they are safe. They are NOT safe - not for people, pets or the environment.

      I dumped it. I chock it up to a new computer with counter-intuitive tab issues, that are anything but.

      I hate it when programmers and software designers assume they are psychic.

      They are not.
      If you go to www.ScienceDaily.com You can do a search on Parkinsons and Pesticides and find lots of stuff about Organochlorines and Parkinsons, Testicular cancer, suicidal ideations, Attention issues in children and lower IQs in children who were exposed in the womb.

      Diabetes is also tied in there too. :(

      So Organophosphates, POPs, PCBs, and Organochlorines.

      I am afraid to ask what NeoNics will do to our brains over a long period of time.
