If you are what you eat, then call us organophosphates. It's no secret that conventional fruits and veggies are riddled with pesticides, and that the foods kids consume, including juices and processed foods, are chock-full of these toxins. But you have to wonder, if we're eating nasty chemicals like chlorpyrifos and malathion daily, what effect do they have on us and on our kids? And, most importantly perhaps, what would happen if our diets changed?
Word on the street is that eating an organic diet is better for the environment and our bodies. Cutting out conventional foods can mean greatly reduced exposure to harmful chemicals. But here's our question: is it just hype?
You can help us find out. We're thrilled to announce a new study on organic food consumption and pesticide levels, and we're looking for volunteer children participants. To qualify, your child and family must NOT consume ANY organic foods at present. You must reside in the GTA. The study will be brief and non-invasive.
If you, or someone you know, are interested in volunteering your child for this important study or if you have any questions about the study process, please contact Rachel Potter, Research Assistant at firstname.lastname@example.org by April 26, 2012.
