Another study out of the Lancet published in 2014 found a correlation between a number of neurobehavioral effects (like autism and ADHD) and several chemicals found in food, water and pharmaceutical drugs, as well as industrial practices. The summary of this study included this statement:
“To control the pandemic of developmental neurotoxicity, we propose a global prevention strategy. Untested chemicals should not be presumed to be safe to brain development, and chemicals in existing use and all new chemicals must therefore be tested for developmental neurotoxicity.”
While I realize these links are only to abstracts and summaries, rather than the hard data, they do conform to a larger body of data that has been accumulating. I find it interesting that an establishment source like the Lancet is paying closer attention to what, to some degree for the last thirty years, has been an outlier topic.
I hope this suggests a greater scrutiny in the future over what people are consuming.
