.

Organophosphate pesticides/insecticides are nerve agents that inactivate an important enzyme which is essential to nerve function. This can cause neurodevelopment disorders in small children and fetuses. Though organophosphates degrade rapidly when exposed to sunlight, air, and soil, chronic toxicity can still occur as these chemicals are used on food crops, orchards, and food storage centers.

The Organophosphates Profile is a urine test that identifies a patient´s prolonged exposed to organophosphate pesticides. The Organophosphates Profile uncovers exposure to these pesticides, insecticides, and herbicides to determine if avoidance and detoxification are needed for optimal health. Organophosphates from pesticides can be hazardous to the neurological development of children and babies in the womb, producing lower IQs.
