I think those brown people would prefer not to work among poisons. Higher incidences of health problems, in particular birth defects, are one of the reasons Cesar Chavez spoke out in favor of organics. Their working conditions should be better in many ways but this benefit, in addition to the pesticide and herbicide runoff into water, were ignored by the Stanford study and New York article. After reading the times article my first question, as it should always be in this age of budget cuts to desperate universities, was "who funded it?". Thanks for letting me know.
