world Families use them in gardens to rid their plants of unwanted pests and farmers use them on crops to keep away swarms of bugs People realize that a high dosage of these chemicals can have a negative impact on a person s health but they rarely stop to think about what exposure to low doses of these insecticides can do especially to a young child s brain still in the developmental process A study published in the journal Environmental International set out to determine if low level exposure to Pyrethroid insecticides affected a child s neurodevelopment The researchers studied 287 mothers and their children by collecting urine samples between 6 and 19 weeks into the pregnancy and again when the children reached 6 years old Two insecticide metabolites known as 3 PBA and cis DBCA were associated with a negative impact on neurocognitive development particularly for verbal comprehension and working memory scores These ratings were measured using the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children Children are more vulnerable to pesticides not only because they are in a delicate developmental period throughout childhood but because they are lower to the ground as well When children play outside in an area that has been sprayed by pesticides they are likely to consume small amounts of the substance thus negatively impacting future IQ scores Other harmful effects linked to pesticides Along with developmental delays prenatal exposure to agricultural pesticides is believed to induce autism A study published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives observed 970 participants to determine whether their residential proximity to agricultural pesticides during pregnancy was linked to autism spectrum disorders or developmental delays The results found that mothers who were exposed to organophosphates at some point during gestation were associated with a 60 percent increased risk for autism spectrum disorders How to minimize exposure to pesticides Many people are concerned about what their children are exposed to at a young age and if you fear for your child s development there are steps you can take to reduce your pesticide interaction First living near agricultural fields nearly guarantees you and your family will come into contact with pesticides because farmers use crop dusting to protect their plants from various insects and other pests The wind blows these chemicals onto your garden and yard exposing you to the pesticides when you go outside So moving to an area with fewer agricultural fields can fix this problem In addition Eartheasy suggests buying organic produce because these items are usually pesticide free Just to be sure however make sure you are washing your fruits and vegetables before consuming them READ MORE Improve brain function with the right foods MONDAY AUGUST 10 2015 12 55 PM Between running the kids to school and after class activities coming home to cook a healthy dinner can seem too time consuming However taking 15 to 30 minutes to whip together a quick meal could not only improve your children s health but also their brain function Having a healthy and balanced diet is essential to a child s cognitive development and feeding children the right foods at every meal can help power their brains Breakfast Known by many as the most important meal of the day breakfast can easily be overlooked in the rush to school in the morning According to the Journal of the American Dietetic Association 20 percent of children aged 9 to 13 and 31 5 percent of adolescents aged 14 to 18 are breakfast skippers Missing the first meal of the day is harmful to kids and can affect their grades because it means they won t get an important morning energy boost By the time lunch rolls around kids are usually experiencing hunger pangs as well making them irritable Start your child s morning off right by providing him or her with a hearty breakfast Eggs are a fantastic breakfast food to offer your kids They provide protein and other nutrients including a nutrient called choline Choline according to What to Expect is instrumental in brain development and memory function Beginning the morning with a healthy meal will set the pace for the rest of the day Lunch Fill your kids up by packing them a lunch full of whole grains Sandwiches are an easy way to provide children with this essential food group and they offer a variety of meal options Make sure the bread you re using is 100 percent whole wheat or whole grain because it offers more nutritional value than white According to The Diet Channel whole grains contain lots of Vitamin B which helps with memory function so they can retain information better This will be useful when taking exams and studying information in class The grains also provide plenty of energy so your child will make it through the next three hours of class activities Dinner According to the World Health Organization the most common and widespread nutritional disorder is iron deficiency If the body lacks certain nutrients in most cases cognitive function will start to decline To make sure your student doesn t develop an iron deficiency start serving lean beef during dinnertime The best part about this food choice is the variety of meals you can make with the ingredient A few examples of meals include Hamburgers Steak Sloppy Joes Spaghetti and meatballs Beef and broccoli Keep the kids interested in their food by diversifying meals and exposing them to new flavors If your family is vegetarian try cooking up some soy burgers or meals that include black beans Beans are a great source of iron for a child s diet What to avoid Along with knowing what food items will help improve your child s diet it s equally valuable to recognize what can hinder healthy attempts One study found in the journal Plos One identified trans fatty acids as a hindrance to memory According to the study each gram of trans fatty acids consumed each day resulted in an estimated 76 fewer words recalled This type of fat is also not known to offer any nutritional value to a person s diet Children have a hard enough time remembering the facts and formulas required for tests without the added nutritional interference To help avoid this non nutritional food additive check the labels on your groceries If an item lists trans fats try finding an alternative product without it Try skipping the fast food restaurants as well A study published in the journal Clinical Pediatrics found a link between fast food consumption and lower IQ scores In a statement Kelly Purtell lead author of the study said that students who ate the most fast food had about 20 percent lower test scores This is thought to be caused by the lack of nutrients found in most fast food meals READ MORE more articles Personality Test Information Anxiety symptoms could affect depressed adolescents TUESDAY AUGUST 13 2013 11 18 AM A total of 40 million adults in the U S have anxiety disorders according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America With so many individuals affected by these conditions it is essential for people to recognize the signs of anxiety disorders as early as possible One way to identify early symptoms among adolescents may be to have them take a personality test If these individuals show signs of depression they could be at risk of developing anxiety based on the results of a recent study from Southern Methodist University Overall there were three risk factors that increased adolescents odds of developing anxiety In addition to displaying symptoms of depression these youths also had either a pessimistic outlook on life low quality family relationships or mothers with a history of anxiety Ultimately it is important to identify signs of anxiety among adolescents before it can harm their personal and academic development Anxiety can manifest as social phobia in which kids are afraid to interact with friends and teachers or in school refusal in which children try to avoid going to school said Chrystyna D Kouros the psychologist who led the study READ MORE Players of fast paced video games may become more aggressive WEDNESDAY AUGUST 07 2013 11 59 AM Earlier this year a study was published in Youth Violence and Juvenile Justice that found that playing violent video games can lead to the development of aggressive and even criminal behavior Now new research from Iowa State University once again shows a link between playing video games and increased aggression That is not to say video games cannot have a positive effect on players According to the research violent and fast paced video games known as first person shooters require individuals to think quickly if they are to advance This enhances players visual skills over time Unfortunately players also experience a reduction in their ability to restrain impulsive behavior This in turn means that those who play these fast paced games can become more aggressive We believe that any game that requires the same type of rapid responding as in most first person shooters may produce similar effects on proactive executive control regardless of violent content said Craig Anderson director of the Center for the Study of Violence at Iowa State University who worked on the study Based on these findings individuals who play fast paced video games on a regular basis may want to take a personality test and see if it is time to unplug their gaming console READ MORE Personality tests could help colleges retain STEM majors THURSDAY JULY 25 2013 10 20 AM A 2011 report by the U S Department of Commerce shows that in the past decade the growth of science technology engineering and mathematics STEM jobs was three times greater than that of non STEM jobs This growth is expected to continue in the coming decade as well meaning there will be a great need for Americans with a college degree in one of these subjects However many college students who study STEM subjects end up switching their major before graduating To determine why this happens researchers from Georgia Tech and Rice universities studied 589 undergraduates at the Georgia Institute of Technology between 2000 and 2008 paying close attention to their personality traits self concept and motivation Psych Central reports In doing so the researchers found that female STEM students tend to switch majors because they have lower self concepts in math and science while men typically have lower levels of orientation toward mastery and organization Based on these results researchers feel that colleges could better predict students long term success in STEM subjects if they look at their Advanced Placement exam scores and personality test results during the admissions process READ MORE more articles Career Test Information Monday is the best day to apply for a job WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 06 2013 18 51 PM Unfortunately for job seekers the best day of the week to apply for a position is typically not included among the results of an aptitude test Fortunately Bright com a website designed to match recruiters with those who are looking for work recently determined that the answer to this question is Monday according to ABC News The news source highlighted the findings of a Bright com study which showed that 30 percent of job seekers who submitted their application on a Monday continued on to the hiring process next stage Only 20 percent of those who applied on Tuesdays were able to accomplish the same while 14 percent of individuals who applied on Saturdays advanced With the holiday season about to begin some individuals may not think the day of the week matters all that much in their job search After all many people believe that companies are more concerned with taking time off during late November and December than looking for new hires Don t assume everyone has closed up shop for the holidays Bob Corlett founder and president of Staffing Advisors wrote in a guest column in the Baltimore Business Journal Lots of employers are actively interviewing right now and most are hoping you can start work in December or early January READ MORE Report highlights disconnect between job seekers and hiring managers WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 30 2013 15 01 PM After taking an aptitude test job seekers may have a good sense of what skills they possess However these individuals need to be careful not to become overconfident in terms of what they have to offer Based on the findings contained in a recent Career Advisory Board report companies may not be as confident in job candidates abilities Differences of opinion The new report which was created using survey responses from 507 job seekers and 500 hiring managers shows that members of these two groups are out of sync For example 56 percent of job seekers said they are confident they know what companies are looking for in potential employees while 72 percent of them are confident in their ability to share their skills and experience with employers However hiring managers are not as confident in job seekers abilities and only 15 percent of these company officials said job seekers have the skills they desire This disconnect is problematic as people s overconfidence could be standing between them and the positions they desire Growing pessimism The disconnect between job seekers and hiring managers could also affect individuals outlook on the nation s economy Although the U S Bureau of Labor Statistics states that the unemployment rate currently sits at 7 2 percent the lowest it has been since 2008 many people seeking employment are becoming pessimistic According to the report 37 percent of job seekers said they have no confidence in the job market s ability to improve next year This figure is a 7 percent increase over last year s total We re seeing an increasing number of job seekers who are losing hope but the economy isn t fully to blame said Alexandra Levit business and workplace consultant and Career Advisory Board member in a statement Opportunities do exist for job seekers who are able to effectively demonstrate to hiring managers that they have specific in demand skills Economic confidence high among hiring managers While many job seekers are pessimistic hiring managers are more hopeful The report reveals that 86 percent of these professionals are somewhat confident the job market will improve next year In fact 67 percent of hiring managers are so confident in the economy that they do not feel as though they need to settle for job candidates who are not perfect
