Stuff To Think About

This comes as no surprise.
The studies, say one of the authors, are important because while others have linked pesticide exposure to potential developmental effects, these are the first to follow groups of mothers and their offspring over time and document changes in the children's cognitive development. Even after accounting for other factors that could explain differences in IQ, such as maternal education, the home environment, and possible underlying attention or development disorders, the relationship persisted. "These studies are unusual in that they are the first to look at prenatal exposure at a low level — at levels that would occur in everyday life, and not levels that would poison us — and followed the children prospectively," says Brenda Eskenazi, director of the center for environmental research and children's health at U. C. Berkeley.
Now we know why the rich are so insensitive to the poor & middle class.  I just wonder how much botox the Koch Brothers use, if any. 
Botox may smooth your wrinkles, but it can dull your ability to understand the emotions of others, a new study suggests.
Botox, used in cosmetic and medical procedures for 20 years, paralyzes muscles, hindering certain facial movements, such as frowns, that over time can cause wrinkles.
Therein lies the problem, says David Neal, a psychology professor at the University of Southern California, lead author of the research, published today in the journal Social Psychology and PersonalityScience.
The wealthy don't need to be exposed to pesticides, unless they demand green grass 365/12 in their gated communities. But the wealthy do want to botox themselves into insensitivity so that they don't have to worry that their policies & political donation are killing people.  Got to have that frozen smile & blond hair to keep daddy happy.  It's clear that botox & pesticides are part of the insidious attack on the poor & middle class, & no, I'm not kidding.
