Default Kids and chemicals

interesting (yet scary) story about chemicals present in children....and how all the things we take for granted as "Safe" may be the exact opposite...

scary is not even the word...besides stop eating processed food ladened with chemicals (especially McD's), what is a worried family to do? Maybe Ted Kazinski (the unabomber) wasn't that crazy after all. Of course, I'm only referring to his isolationist living situation in the neck of the woods in the middle of nowhere (and not the killing innocent people). I guess its one of the prices we pay for the Agriculture and Industrial Revolution and our shift away from our origins and hunter-gather lifestyle.
100,000 generations of humans have been hunters and gatherers; 500 generations have been agriculturalists; ten have lived in the industrial age; and only one has been exposed to the world of computers.

There’s a programme running on British television at the moment that deals with this called ‘How Toxic are Your Kids’

Very scary stuff, makes you think that nothing is safe in today’s world.
