Fetal and early childhood exposures to industrial chemicals in the environment can damage the developing brain and can lead to neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs)–autism, attention deficit disorder (ADHD), and mental retardation. Still, there has been insufficient research done to identify the individual chemicals that can cause injury to the developing brains of children.

Look. How hard is it to try to keep kids (and senior citizens, frankly) healthy? As the world’s weakest citizens, they should be the ones that we protect the most. Instead, we give our kids chemical poisoning, hormone-stuffed food and liquids, too much sugar and salt and Ritalin, which is, interestingly enough, chemically similar to cocaine.
Thank Wikipedia for that cite, by the way.
Perfect. And I didn’t even mention the school shootings.
Society, stop sleeping.
