BiomedicalEnvironmentalCommunity Library Hidden Threats: Lead Poisoning from Unusual Sources: Article contains a table that lists some unusual sources of lead toxicity that have been reported in the medical literature.
BiomedicalEnvironmentalCommunity Library Autism Disorders Greatly Linked with Environmental Factors, Study Claims: A new study analysis revealed that autism and intellectual disability (ID) rates correlated with incidences of genital malformations in newborn males.
BiomedicalEnvironmentalCommunity Library Environmental Factors Contributing To Autism: This article illustrates examples as to the linkage of environment and autism.
BiomedicalEnvironmentalCommunity Library Autism Linked to Higher Smog Levels, Study Says: Air pollution exposure may be linked to a child's risk of autism, a recent study suggests.
BiomedicalEnvironmentalCommunity Library This is the Best Explanation of the Vaccine/Autism Connection I've Ever Heard!: Dr. Stephanie Seneff discusses the potential connection between vaccines and autism.
BiomedicalEnvironmentalCommunity Library Banned PCB Chemicals Still Tied to Autism in the USA: This article states that children exposed to increased levels of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in the womb can be at risk for developing autism.
BiomedicalEnvironmentalCommunity Library Autism Spectrum Disorder and Particulate Matter Air Pollution Before, During, and After Pregnancy: A Nested Case–Control Analysis Within the Nurses’ Health Study II Cohort: This study explored the association between maternal exposure to particulate matter air pollution and odds of ASD in her child.
BiomedicalEnvironmentalCommunity Library Environmental toxicants and autism spectrum disorders: a systematic review, Dan Rossignol, MD and Richard Frye, MD et. al.: The reviewed studies support an association between environmental toxicants and ASD which may be due to the toxicant exposures unique to individuals with ASD (i.e., pica behavior) and/or increased susceptibilities to the adverse effects of toxicants. The findings of this review suggest that the etiology of ASD involves complex interactions between genetic factors and environmental toxicants that may act synergistically or in parallel during critical periods of neurodevelopment, conferring enhanced susceptibilities to the adverse effects of environmental toxicants in a manner that increases the likelihood of developing ASD.
BiomedicalEnvironmentalCommunity Library Environmental Toxicants and Autism Spectrum Disorder, Dan Rossignol, MD and Richard Frye, MD: Exposures to environmental toxicants during susceptible periods of neurodevelopment may lead to alterations in normal developmental patterns and impaired neurotransmitter function. Several environmental toxicants—including mercury, lead, arsenic, polychlorinated biphenyls, and toluene—cause neurodevelopmental disorders. This may be because the developing brain is more susceptible to injury from toxicants than the adult brain. This report explains the relationship between environmental toxicants and neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism.
