Pesticides and ADHD?

Study claims pesticides to blame for ADHD. I'm highly suspicious of this, since there are pesticides on every conventionally grown vegetable and fruit, I don't trust food companies to wash off veggies and fruits before processing and/or canning them, and I think it smells a bit too similar to the whole "vaccines cause autism" BS. It's looking like another case where so many people are exposed to so much of this stuff that it's being used as a convenient scapegoat.

Personally, I think the rise of ADHD and ADD is entirely artificial; part of the rise is better diagnosis than they had in the past, and the rest of it is people who are crappy parents over-medicating their children because they can't admit to themselves that they don't have the personality for raising children, aided and abetted by greedy doctors who are way too quick to diagnose people with things so they can prescribe expensive medications.

Congratulations: we're turning into Ferengi.

If you suddenly found out that there was a thriving civilization living on your food, and eating it would kill billions of innocent people, would you still eat it?
