here is the revelation:
Frequent exposure to many of the chemicals used on farms may affect hand-eye
coordination, judgment or other forms of neuromotor control that, in turn,
influence injury risk, Nice to know I don't have to worry about that
because I don't use chemicals that may cause neurologic symptoms .
