A General Level of Toxicity in the Enviornment

Americans are being "bombarded" with cancer-causing chemicals and radiation and the federal government must do far more to protect them, presidential cancer advisers said on Thursday...

"The incidence of some cancers, including some most common among children, is increasing for unexplained reasons," wrote the two panel members, Dr. LaSalle Leffall, professor of surgery at Howard University College of Medicine in Washington and Margaret Kripke, an emeritus professor at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center.(1)

I wonder if the increasing numbers of autistic children is a result of this.

We have trashed the environment in so many ways that we may be overwhelming our bodies natural filters. This might affect young children the most, since they have the weakest defenses.
