Are pesticides really the link?  Or is it hereditary? 

Pesticides in kids linked to ADHD

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/37156010/ns/health-kids_and_parenting/

You’ve got to think this one through.  If the parents already have ADHD, and they buy fruits, don’t have the “patience” to wash the fruit, and the kids end up with larger detectible amounts of pesticides in their bodies – are the pesticides really the cause or is it hereditary?

I say, switch the kids around for the real test – sure, let the kids go live at a parent’s house w/ out ADHD for 10 years [clearly I’m kidding] who then consciously chooses NOT to wash the fruit.

I read this story and all I could think was that the parents already have ADHD and they end up not washing these fruits and vegetables

Finally someone agrees! I have often speculated along these lines but many people still seem to think because it's in the paper/teh interwebs it must be true. And as soon as the word 'scientist' or 'researcher' is banded about it is an indisputable fact.
