Mercury and Autism and.................?

Another argument for radically increasing the amount of carbon sequestration in soils. Beyond reducing atmospheric CO2, it helps bind toxic elements so they cannot be taken up by plants. The following maps should be a startling wake up call. Click the maps for a larger view.

Rain, Autism, and Mercury
(click title for full story)

...a recent study of federal data showed that the percentage of Americans with detectable levels of inorganic mercury in their blood increased eightfold between 2000 and 2004.

These are the same years that we see burgeoning levels of mercury being spewed into the atmosphere from industrializing areas of the world, particularly in China and other Asian countries.

The US Government has detected "mercury plumes" that carry the dangerous neurotoxin in great quantities across the Pacific and, within five days, found them hovering just offshore of San Diego, California. (See Map HERE)

At a recent vaccine forum at Hackensack University Medical Center, in New Jersey, I made this observation, and mentioned that the mercury carried aloft through the atmosphere will come down in the form of rain along the west coast or, during drier periods, continue eastward until it finds wetter, rainier parts of the country, where it is washed to the ground.
