Yesterday The Lancet medical journal (for subscribers only) has a published a ground-shaking study that should give us a lot to worry about:
Title: Developmental neurotoxicity of industrial chemicals

According to this study one in six individuals born between 1960 and 1980 has some type of brain disorder, i.e. lower IQ, aggressive behaviour, autism, short attention span... and here we were thinking it was all from watching too much TV!

Here’s BBC News’s article

Toxic chemicals may be causing a pandemic of brain disorders because of inadequate regulation, researchers say.

La revista médica The Lancet (sólo para abonados) publicó ayer un estudio demoledor que debería darnos mucho que pensar:

Según este estudio, uno de cada seis nacidos entre 1960 y 1980 tiene algún tipo de trastorno cerebral, i.e. coeficiente intelectual bajo, agresividad, austismo, deficit de atención...y nosotros pensando que era de tanto ver la tele!

Sí, pero no es ningún impedimento para medrar. Ni aquí, ni en los EEUU.


Uno de ellos será el próximo jefe del estado español... si no lo remediamos.


Saludos.

Yes, but that's no obstacle to to becoming prosperous. Not here, not in the United States.

One of them will be the next leader of the Spanish government--if we donlt orevent it.
