Here’s more on the admission from Mt. Sinai’s Phil Landrigan.

  1. Health nannies have a cow over pesticides even when used according to directions, but they are silent about the dangers of illegal drugs, meth in particular, which can contaminate the house where it is manufactured or even used. And the risk is hundreds of times greater because meth is used far more frequently than all pesticides.
