Prenatal chlorpyrifos exposure alters brain structure, affects IQ in children
This pesticide has been around for a long time and it shows! It's been banned in many countries, but Trump recently PREVENTED the ban. On 8/9/18 the 9th circuit ordered the EPA to ban the sale of chlorpyrifos in the United States within 60 days. Will Trump appeal?

From https://factor.niehs.nih.gov/2012/7/science-prenatal/

A new NIEHS-funded study reports that when a pregnant woman is exposed to chlorpyrifos, a commonly used pesticide, her child’s developing brain may be damaged, leading to lowered intelligence.

“The prenatal period is a vulnerable time for the developing child, and that toxic exposure during this critical period can have far-reaching effects on brain development and behavioral functioning,” said NIEHS grantee Virginia Rauh, Sc.D., a professor at the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health. “We have demonstrated that there is a relatively monotonic dose-response effect, suggesting that some small effects occur at even very low exposures.” 

The evidence comes from researchers who conducted a recent brain imaging study of children exposed prenatally to chlorpyrifos. In addition to Columbia University scientists, the team included researchers affiliated with Duke University Medical Center, Emory University, and the New York State Psychiatric Institute. ...

There you have it! 

Doesn't THIS explain why people seem to get dumber all the time?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chlorpyrifos

...

Chlorpyrifos is considered moderately hazardous to humans by the World Health Organization.[6] Exposure surpassing recommended levels has been linked to neurological effects, persistent developmental disorders and autoimmune disorders. Exposure during pregnancy may harm the mental development of children, and most home use was banned in 2001 in the U.S.[7] In agriculture, it is "one of the most widely used organophosphate insecticides" in the United States, and before being phased out for residential use was one of the most used residential insecticides.[8]

On March 29, 2017, EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt denied a petition to ban chlorpyrifos.[9] However, on August 9, 2018, the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ordered the EPA to ban the sale of chlorpyrifos in the United States within 60 days.[10] ...

Don't know yet whether Trump will appeal to the supreme court.  The dumber the people, the more votes for industry, death, disease and destruction.
