New research may link household pesticide to autism

While the results could easily be a coincidence, the pesticide has been found to allow more toxins to enter the brains of rats. ABC News

At least pet shampoos have a purpose (to stop lyme's disease for example). Lawn pesticides are the most inexcusable.
