Punjab disability 'uranium link'


news.bbc.co.uk


A charity based in Faridkot city said chemical analyses of hair specimens collected from 149 children in its care showed "unexpected amounts" of toxins.

The children included in the study were all under 13, it said.

The result has baffled the authorities as there are no known sources of uranium in Punjab.

The chemical tests were conducted on the suggestion of Dr Carin Smit, a South African metal toxicologist associated with the UK-based non-governmental organisation Defeat Autism Now.

Well this is interesting... while only the kids who attend the Center for Special Children were tested they came from all over the Punjab.

Considering the Punjab is up against Pakistan I wonder if this is somehow related to that countries nuclear program... or India's for that matter.

Does anyone know where either country conducts their tests?

Also since the Punjab is up against the Himalaya and the Hindu Kush... and they are among the youngest mountains on earth (and still growing) it seems possible that the source could be there someplace and/or in the water runoff from that area.

Its interesting regardless.

Would explain a lot...

Ajmal Kasab (the single Pakistani terrorist captured after the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai) is from Faridkot.

My guess would be undiscovered an uranium sources. That would be horrible news... the last thing we need is Pakistan having an unlimited supply of uranium.

Guess it could also be dumped material from the Pak nuke program.

Or even (though admittedly highly unlikely) from ancient nuclear wars. The area in question surrounds the now dried up Saraswati river- the centre of the Indo-aryan civilization that was responsible for creating Hindu mythology.

Could be anything! Best to keep an open mind at this stage IMO.
