Well, these days, Americans especially, are exposed to a lot more chemicals than they used to be. Everyone is on a drug or two, there are lots of pollutants, children get dozens of vaccines, and people take antibiotics for everything.
I think that may be a reason why we have a lot more mental disorders nowadays than years earlier. A Fox news report from yesterday showed that autism used to be rare- 1 case of autism in 10,000. Today, it is 1 in 130 or so. Fox didn't have many facts, but a lot of circumstancial evidence that mercury preservatives in vaccines could have caused it.
There's lots of bombardment of chemicals and the brain today- I'm not suprised we all are mentally messed up.
As always- None of my statements are evaluated by the FDA.
