  •  Well, heavy metals are toxic. In fact, many (0+ / 0-)

    compounds they list are well known to be toxic.

    They specifically say:

    'Precautionary interpretation of data about developmental neurotoxicity should take into account the very large individual and societal costs that result from failure to act on available documentation to prevent disease in children. Academic research has often favoured scepticism and required extensive replication before acceptance of a hypothesis, thereby adding to the inertia in toxicology and environmental health research and the consequent disregard of many other potential neurotoxicants.'

    They choose to interpret every study that shows possible toxicity as a cause for alarm.
