[Hertz-Picciotto I and others. Blood mercury concentrations in CHARGE Study: Children with and without autism. Environmental Health Perspectives, Oct 19, 2009] The complete report is available as a .pdf at this link.
From the latest Consumer Health Digest. Please check out the full issue. There's some great stuff about pop psychology and Paul Offit in there. It never fails to floor me how the people with facts on their side stick to those while their logic-challenged opponents just launch personal attacks.
