This study compared the level of organophosphate pesticides’ metabolites urinary levels with ADHD symptoms. As these metabolites increased, the prevalence of ADHD increased.

Naturopaths advocate for avoiding all toxins.

Homotoxicology practitioners claim to be able to remove these toxins through conjugation reactions that bind these toxins to administered drugs rendering these toxins harmless, or at least less harmful.
