Current science recognizes the fallacy in the theory of macro-evolution.  You will not find it touted as fact in academic circles the way you do in public primary schools and even in the media.

Similarly science is finding the connection between Autism Spectrum Disorders  (and other developmental delays) and environmental assaults like heavy metals.  The debate connecting heavy metal toxicity and Autism is ongoing, not because of lack of research, but because of politics.

Children’s Environmental Health Center (CEHC) at Mount Sinai School of Medicine developed the list of ten chemicals found in consumer products that are suspected to contribute to autism and learning disabilities to guide a research strategy to discover potentially preventable environmental causes. The top ten chemicals are:

1.Lead

2.Methylmercury

3.PCBs

4.Organophosphate pesticides

5.Organochlorine pesticides

6.Endocrine disruptors

7.Automotive exhaust

8.Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons

9.Brominated flame retardants

10.Perfluorinated compounds
