Autism. Early menarche. Major depression. Male birth defects. Premature birth. Ectopic pregnancy. Insulin resistance. Cancer. Childhood asthma. Incidence rates of these are all going up and the age of onset for some is coming down.

In this video Dr Paul Winchester, Clinical Professor, Indiana Univ. School of Medicine and Director, Neonatal Intensive Care, St. Francis Hospital, makes the case for examining the role of environmental contaminants in increased rates of a range of diseases.

The presentation is very detailed and thought-provoking. Although long, even the first ten minutes gives an excellent background of the problems which environmental health scientists and medical professionals are trying to understand.

A PDF (10M) of the presentation slides can be downloaded here.

One of Dr Paul Winchester's findings is to find an association between seasonal spikes in pesticide levels and children being born with spina bifida.
