|Exposure to Pesticides When Pregnant Linked to 3 Generations of Disease|
Newsweek - 7/24/2014.

The pesticide – also commercially known as Chemform, Methoxo, Metox or Moxie – had a much shorter half-life and was billed as the safe alternative to DDT. Now, new research argues that exposure to the pesticide could cause diseases three generations later, in offspring who were never exposed to the Methoxychlor themselves.
