I just read the book Fateful Harvest. Has anyone else read it? I suggest that the following issues may be related to children's health issues in the US. I'm not saying that vaccines aren't harmful, but it does seem that the focus on vaccines is distracting public attention from other potentially harmful practices. One of the issues I don't understand is why is it that autism and ADHD and other problems affect boys a lot more frequently than girls? Do boys really react so much differently to the chemicals in vaccines?
Here's the short list:
* Endocrine disrupting chemicals (http://www.epa.gov/ord/NRMRL/EDC/) (http://www.cbc.ca/documentaries/doczone/2008/disappearingmale/)
* Pharmaceuticals and personal care products (http://www.epa.gov/esd/bios/daughton/errata.pdf)
* Fire-retardant chemicals (http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/sunday/commentary/la-oe-blum17-2008oct17,0,6525043.story)
* Addition of industrial wastes contaminated with heavy metals and dioxins to fertilizers used for food crops (legal practice) (http://www.amazon.com/Fateful-Harvest-Global-Industry-Secret/dp/0060931833)
I guess routine contamination of our water and air should be added to the list, but it seems so obvious and it's been going on for so long.
