What It's Like to be a Genius
A quick read on 'autistic savants.'
So heavy metals have been known to cause all sorts of rukus in the brain for a while now. What happens when multiple generations are exposed to
mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), arsenic (As), chromium (Cr), thallium (Tl), and lead (Pb)? Like all adapting organisms would the body learn to negate some
of the negative effects? Apparently traces of heavy metal poisoning show up in later generations as minor skin afflictions like cerebral dermatitus
and psoraisis, not to mention the increased chance of parkinsons and dimentia.
To me it looks like after a certain amount of generations pass the body learns to 'deal' with the poisons. perhaps after even more our bodies could
learn to use them?
I know lead poisoning is basically your body see lead as calcium, due to similar electron configurations, and puts the lead in places it shouldnt.
I also remember reading something about 2nd or 3rd generation residents of chernobyl are being born super smart and extremely resilant to disease.
