Why Pesticides Should Be Used Sparingly: The Association Between Autism and DDT

Not directly related to cannabis per se, but amazingly this persistent pesticide has wreaked silent havoc across the world, and is still having effects today.

So use as few pesticides as you can get away with! Stick with stuff that’s historically safe.

Best IPM has very little of anything in it…just a whole lot of cleanliness!

If you don’t have to use pesticides, don’t use them!

I have worked with a lot of people with Autism. I have a cousin with Autism. So it’s an issue that’s close to my own heart. I strongly urge growers everywhere to question that pesticide BEFORE applying it. Do you really need it? What might be the broader impact of your actions?

Thanks for bringing this article to our attention @Hunter.
