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

The report reveals that an organic diet before and during pregnancy can help the fetus develop a healthy endocrine system, which regulates metabolism and tissue function. Children and adults with healthy endocrine systems have an easier time managing their weight and blood sugar levels and are less likely to combat obesity and diabetes in life. However, exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals in life's earliest stages -- including pesticides used in conventional farming methods -- can upset the child's development and create health problems later on.

"When I started my practice, it was unusual to see a child with high blood pressure, high blood glucose and triglycerides, and/or increased waist size," said Alan Greene, a leading pediatrician and board member of The Organic Center. "But today, about two-thirds of U.S. teens already have at least one of these middle age conditions that predispose children to metabolic syndrome later in life."

Currently, two out of three American adults are overweight or obese, and if current trends continue, the vast majority will be overweight by 2048. To combat this alarming trend, the report suggests a new model for health and well-being at every age: an organic Mediterranean-style diet high in fiber and vegetable proteins and low in carbohydrates, meats and saturated fats. With organic fruits, vegetables and grains that contain, on average, 30% higher levels of antioxidants than their conventional counterparts, people at all life stages -- from pre-natal health to elder years -- can take important steps to promote their well-being.

Study co-authors Dr. Christine McCullum-Gomez and Dr. Richard Theuer highlight two key conclusions, "Breastfeeding your baby for at least six months and adopting a Mediterranean diet, based on whole grains, vegetables, dried beans, olive oil, garlic, fresh herbs, seafood and fruit, will help keep you and your child
