Research published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives has found a correlation between pregnant women living near pesticide application sites and a significant increase in the prevalence of autism and developmental delays in babies.

The conclusion was reached based on a population control study that observed the effects common crop chemicals have on gestational exposure.

“We evaluated whether residential proximity to agricultural pesticides during pregnancy is associated with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) or developmental delay (DD) in the Childhood Autism Risks from Genetics and Environment (CHARGE) study.”

Using commercial pesticide application data from the California Pesticide Use Report from 1997–2008, researchers assessed the impact the chemicals had on 970 pregnant participants.
