Usa, hundreds of millions of Iq points lost for 4 pollutants
the ROME - Brominated flame retardants - used in various products from textile to electronic devices - along with pesticides, lead and mercury are among the pollutants most dangerous. Well, in the Usa have lost in 15 years, over 180 million points of iq for children who were exposed during pregnancy, says a study by New York University published in the journal Molecular and Cellular Endocrinology. Researchers have estimated, using data from a national search, the damages for in utero exposure of children born between 2001 and 2016 in all of the Usa to the four pollutants mentioned above, well-known for their negative effect on the brain tissue.

The analysis revealed that only the brominated flame retardants they did lose over the period of 160 million points of iq, in addition to the 27 million lost for pesticides, 78 million to the lead and 2.5 for the mercury. Starting from the assumption that every point of Iq lost is worth about 20 thousand dollars of future productivity of the person, the total cost of all of these pollutants exceeded a thousand billion dollars. "The brain of children is the engine of our economy - explain the authors -. If a child loses a point of Iq parents do not realize it, but if it happens to 100 thousand children suffers, the entire economy".
