Alright, what was done in research by Arizona State University for
Autism, and thus proving by statistics that autism is caused by heavy
metals in the body, the same sort of research needs to be done for
Schizophrenia, Parkinsons, Prion, Depression, and Alzheimers.

Now autism has severity levels and those levels can be correlated by
the quantity of mercury or cadmium in the body.

I do not know if Alzheimers, Parkinsons, Schizophrenia, Prion and
Depression have levels of severity. I would think Alzheimers,
Parkinsons and Prion have progressive stages of the disease where it
continually gets worse as the plaques build up or Parkinsons tremors
increase, but I would suspect the heavy metal build-up is not

So in the case of Alzheimers Parkinsons and Prion, there maybe a
accumulative load of heavy metal that starts the onset and the disease
then feeds on that load. Now I do remember a report in England in the
1990s where a group of people contracted an accelerated form of CJD, a
prion disease, and where all had one thing in common, eating at a
restaurant. That sounds like a classic case of getting too much
mercury or other heavy metals. I do not suppose autopsies can be run
on those individuals to see if they had excess mercury in their

A research into how much heavy metals in Schizophrenia and in
Depression patients needs to be carried out.

So it looks as though ASU has started some big, good, and new science
research in medicine, and now we need to expand it from just Autism to
that of these other diseases-- Alzheimers, Parkinsons, Schizophrenia,
Prion, Depression.

Now I wonder if Depression comes in severity levels?

And I wonder from the map in Wikipedia on Schizophrenia having the
highest rates in Asia showing 273 to 295 cases per 100,000 while the
USA and Canada have just 197 per 100,000, whether Schizophrenia has a
high quantity of heavy metal and whether that is due to the higher
rates of cigarette smoking in Asia. So it looks as though what ASU has
started in measuring metals in the bodies of disease patients, needs
to be extended to a broader class of diseases-- all of them brain

And we should not stop with human disease of heavy metal, but notice
that bees have what is called
"Colony Collapse Disorder", with something gone wrong with the bee's
mind in orientation which sounds like mercury. So can someone do a
research as to the heavy metal load in bees suffering from CCD?

Also, many whales and other sea creatures get disoriented and beach
themselves. And here again we need a research study to see if it is
caused by heavy metals.

And also, the Mad Cow Disease, the prion disease is highly likely to
be a mercury causing disease and we need to run the same tests on MCD
as Arizona State University ran on Autism.

Only Drexel's Math Forum has done a excellent, simple and fair author-
archiving of AP posts for the past 15 years as seen here:
