An analysis of 100 million U.S. medical records reveals that autism and intellectual disability rates are correlated at the county level with incidence of genital malformations in newborn males, an indicator of possible congenital exposure to harmful environmental factors such as pesticides.
After adjustment for gender, ethnic, socioeconomic and geopolitical factors, autism rates and intellectual disability rates jump substantially for every 1% increase in frequency of malformations in a county, according to the study. Increases in autism and ID rates also are seen in wealthier and more urban counties.
