Conservative Electorate

Here is what I think is wrong with the republican electorate ...

  • prenatal exposure to pesticides is associated with lower IQ
  • farmers use a lot of pesticides
  • most rural areas overwhelmingly vote republican
We already knew from animal studies as well as from epidemiologic studies of women and children that prenatal exposure (to pesticides) is associated with lower IQ source
...Farmers spend approximately $4.1 billion on pesticides annually. They justify this high cost by a direct dollar return of from $3 to $5 for every $1 spent on pesticides. source
