Weston A. Price Foundation

The Foundation is dedicated to restoring nutrient-dense foods to the American diet through education, research and activism and supports a number of movements that contribute to this objective including accurate nutrition instruction, organic and biodynamic farming, pasture-feeding of livestock, community-supported farms, honest and informative labeling, prepared parenting and nurturing therapies. There are many chapters of the WAPF in the Bay Area as well as all over the country. Think about joining up and becoming part of this growing food movement, bringing back food to the way it was meant to be.

Organic Diets Significantly Lower Children’s Dietary Exposure to Organophosphorus PesticidesChensheng Lu, Kathryn Toepel, [...], and Roberto Bravo

This study examined the role of dietary Organophosphorus Pesticides on children. 

"We used a novel study design to provide a convincing demonstration of the ability of organic diets to reduce children’s OP pesticide exposure and the health risks that may be associated with these exposures. This reduction in exposure was dramatic and immediate for the OP pesticides malathion and chlorpyrifos, which are commonly and predominantly used in agricultural production and have no or minimal residential uses. The findings for the OP pesticide exposure in children from this study therefore support the conclusion made by the NRC (1993) that dietary intake of pesticides could represent the major source of exposure in infants and young children."
