    Protect your children, support SB-458

    Chlorpyrifos is an organophosphate insecticide that has been linked to developmental delays, decreased IQ and learning disabilities. Organophosphate compounds were initially created as a human nerve gas agent in the 1930s and 40s and were later adapted at lower doses to be insecticides. People are primarily exposed to this chemical through their work in agricultural fields, but also via consumption of foods that have been sprayed with the chemical, and through pesticide drift into neighborhoods bordering agricultural areas.
