About the author
I would like to assist a conference like this one, I hope to see one in the coming months, or at least years, because this is city lacks of information about the environmental illness caused by the bad use of nature, so I hope to find a conference that talk about those topics, or maybe I should do it myself 🙂
In this day and age I really do believe that a lot of people are made sick by their environments. I read an article once that described how ironically (or not so ironically) women who lived around areas where diesel fuel emissions were high, had a much higher chance of giving birth to children with autism. Perhaps that’s why we’re seeing such an increase of it?
