PSR series on pesticides, regulations, and farmworker health

My colleagues and friends at Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR) have just published a series of short commentaries titled, "How does our nation’s reliance on pesticides affect the health of those who plant and harvest our food?" Among the excellent short essays is one by myself and my colleague, Mae Wu, on "US Pesticide Regulation : Weaknesses, Loopholes, and Flaws Undermine Farmworker Health". I know that readers will find these short essays useful and interesting. Enjoy, and big thanks to PSR for putting this series together with such respected and knowledgeable authors!
