Studies Reveal Exposure to Pesticides During Pregnancy Increases Risk of Premature Birth, Low-Birth Weight, Neurological Problems and Diabetes

The Organic Center draws conclusions from over 150 scientific studies: Balanced organic diet before and during pregnancy directly benefits childhood development

BOULDER, Colo., May 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Organic Center (TOC), a leading research institute focused on the science of organic food and farming, announced today that a balanced, organic diet -- both before and during pregnancy -- can significantly reduce a child's likelihood of being overweight, obese or developing diabetes.

Furthermore, this combination of reducing pesticide exposure and consuming nutrient-dense organic foods can help people manage weight and prevent diabetes.

"The conscious decision to purchase organic food to improve one's health, or the health of family members, is a critical first step that millions of individuals have decided to take," said Dr. Charles Benbrook, co-author of the report and the chief scientist at The Organic Center.
