Open Thread

How do pesticides affect our lives? New studies show that exposure at conception and birth can not only cause diseases that show up in adults, but also can cause changes that affect subsequent generations even when there is no further exposure.

Amazing how many experiments our era has enacted on ourselves and our environment, all without any real understanding or concern about the long term consequences. Makes one wonder if we have enough smarts to survive over the long haul.
