    According to the World Health Organization between 1 million and 25 million people suffer with pesticide poisoning each year. It is estimated that as many as 20,000 people in the US will develop cancer each year from the residue of pesticide on their food.

    Pesticides will primarily target the lipids in the brain and alter hormone levels due to affects on enzyme activity, and cause serotonin imbalances (happy hormone)

    Organophosphate pesticides are taken directly into our nervous system, converted and alter our other hormones that regulate mood such as neopenephrine and dopamine.

    Whatever of these chemicals your body cannot metabolize, they store in fat and other organs and leak out slowly over the course of weeks, months and even years.
