A new study suggests pregnant women exposed to high levels of air pollution are more likely to give birth to children with autism, according to FOXNews/LiveScience.  Researchers found pregnant women in polluted areas are about two times more likely to have a child with autism than those in other areas.

The Harvard School of Public Health used data collected by the E-P-A and linked autism to diesel fuel, lead, manganese and mercury.  The study found women living in areas with the highest levels of diesel or mercury were twice as likely to have a child with autism.

Areas with lead, manganese and methylene chloride were about 50 percent more likely to give birth to an autistic child.

    A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment. I do believe that you need to publish
    more on this subject, it might not be a taboo matter but generally
    people do not speak about these subjects.
    To the next! Best wishes!!

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to
    get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appearance.

    I must say that you’ve done a great job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads very quick for me on Internet explorer.
    Excellent Blog!
