ADHD Linked to Pesticide Use?

A study just published in the journal Pediatrics has looked at the links between ADHD and pesticides.
The results of a urinary check showed that children with higher urinary dialkyl phosphate concentrations,especially dimethyl alkylphosphate (DMAP) concentrations, weremore likely to be diagnosed as having ADHD.

These findings support the hypothesis that organophosphate exposure,at levels common among US children, may contribute to ADHD prevalence.
