Summary
Children born to women exposed to thyroid-disrupting chemicals have lower IQs and more neurodevelopmental disorders in autism and ADHD, among others. Numerous chemicals that contaminate our bodies and interfere with our thyroids are in fact lowering our IQ and increasing disorders for future generations. A "self-help" guide to reducing exposure to chemicals is included. --
