Report: Chemical mixes can affect nerve growth

BRICK FAMILIES STILL SEEK ANSWERS ON AUTISM
Published in the Asbury Park Press 02/1/05

When parents William and Bobbie Gallagher pressed
government officials to investigate why their children
and so many others here are autistic, they suggested
it might be worth checking into pollution and
environmental factors.

A 2001 federal report discounted possible connections
between autism and pollution. But the stories coming
out of Brick got the attention of other scientists,
who have published new findings showing how some of
the chemicals detected here more than a decade ago ?
when tested in combination and at higher
concentrations ? have the potential to affect nervous
system development in shellfish embryos.
