Drug Contaminants, Chemicals in Tap Water Among Possible Causes of Autism

After exposing fish to two different anti-depressant drugs, Prozac
and venlafaxine, and a seizure-controlling drug called carbamazepine,
experts from the University of Idaho were ‘astonished’ after observing
changes in the genetic pathways of the fish. They found that just traces
of common medications and other chemicals in the water were enough to
bring about autism. What’s more, the drug concentrations were comparable
with the highest estimated environmental levels.

    Notice that the whole country pays for the people that have a little depression? What needs to be done is to ban all so called anti depressant drugs, because they aren't really anti anyway. People that get depression have to change their diet not take a freaken pill. What sense does it make to put a whole damned country at risk for people that can't handle their depression anyway? And if changing the diet doesn't work try going natural or sit in your darkened room by yourself !
