Pesticides and heavy metals have a particularly strong influence on the growing organism.
- The blood-brain barrier is not yet fully developed and is therefore more permeable to toxic substances.
- Fast growing cells are more susceptible to toxins.
- The main detoxifying organs (liver and kidneys) are still immature.
Even the smallest amounts of pollutants can cause tremendous damage to foetuses, infants and toddlers.
