    The Environmental Protection Agency on Wednesday announced that it will ban the use of a common pesticide on food crops, citing health concerns for farmers and children.

    The pesticide, chlorpyrifos, has been widely used on crops like soybeans, fruit and nut trees, broccoli and cauliflower since 1965. It has been linked to neurological problems in children.
