  • Autism Linked to Pollution

    A new study offers strong evidence that environmental toxins play a role in the disorder. The report looked at birth defects associated with parental exposure to pollution and found a 1% increase in the defects corresponded to a 283% increase in autism.

      Another reason to stay in the country... but then again there's Lyme's disease.

      On the commute home I also heard about a study that proposed a link with leaded gasoline and the increase of urban violent crime due to lead poisoning.
      Many links on that topic but here's one; http://www.forbes.com/sites/alexknap...rime-epidemic/

      I'm still somewhat skeptical about the whole 'global warming' concept but these sorts of issues with pollutants to me are more of a reason to move to cleaner forms of energy.

        But the people who don't believe in global warming don't believe we need clean air and water, lol. As if having clean air and water only matters in global temperature.

          I've always wondered why autism just seemed to spring up in the modern era. It also gets worse every year.

            Why...

            Because it wasn't necessarily properly diagnosed in the past.

                Vaccines don't cause autism.

                  Yeah. I suppose you could say that, but it's so widespread now and increasing all the time that it makes sense that it's something in the environment driving it. There are some who argue that part of the reason Rome fell apart was because the upper classes had all their water fed to them in lead pipes.

                    Sounds like good, sound science to me.

                            Spoiler alert...

                            Kids will still pop out of their mommies vagina's and end up with autism.

                              I like how someone would think saying this ironically makes sense...
