What haunts me — and should haunt all of NY — about neonic pesticides January 19, 2023

As a pediatrician, I am most concerned about neonics’ impacts to our children. Prenatal and early life development are periods of exquisite sensitivity, and toxic exposures that interrupt brain development and hormonal systems during these periods can cause injuries that last a lifetime. For example, prenatal exposure to mercury and lead at extremely low levels can lead to measurable lifelong deficits, such as lower IQ, decreased attention span, and behavioral issues. For these chemicals, there is no known “safe” exposure level.
