For the past 20 years, the world has seen an alarming decrease in IQ and a rise of autism and behavioral disorders. This international scientific investigation reveals how chemicals in objects surrounding us affect our brain, and especially those of fetuses.
In California, autism cases have increased by 600%. 44% of European children have an iodine deficiency – an element essential to brain development.
Today we are subjected to chemical elements harmful to the brain daily; those “endocrine disruptors” are present in lots of home and beauty products as well as food.
The estimated cost of those obstacles to brain development rises to €159 billion per year in Europe.
