Why Organophosphorus and Carbamate Pesticides Should Be Studied
This chapter provides evidence on why carbamate and organophosphorus (OP) pesticides should be studied for their effects on children's development. It explains that OP and carbamate pesticides alter the levels of certain brain chemicals which perform important signalling functions directing the course of early brain development and that exposure to these pesticides is quite widespread in most parts of the world. This chapter provides tips for reducing exposure to these pesticides and for preventing their further dispersal in the environment.
