Yes I was terribly off the mark there. After googling around for rates of gay, I see a figure of 6% of Briton is surveyed to be homosexual and 4% for France and USA.
So that would translate into 1 in 17 in Briton and 1 in 25 in the USA whereas we have (recently) 1 in 50 for Autism.
So in the USA, we have homosexuality as the most common disease when a youngster and the second most common disease is autism.
So we would expect 1 in 25 children to be gay and 1 in 50 children to be autistic.
Now it does not surprise me at all that Briton would be far higher rate of homosexuals than USA because Briton burns a lot of coal and eats a lot of ocean fish, two prime sources of mercury poison. Briton is also the historical home of prion disease, of sheep scrapie and mad cow disease and that fits in to the picture of "so much mercury in the environment."
Now we should see that China, as it becomes more and more industrial and the worst polluter in the world, we should see China have a spiked increase in homosexuality, in autism/aspergers, in schizophrenia, in depression, in Parkinsons, in Alzheimers and in Prion disease all due to the fact that China burns the most fossil fuels releasing the most mercury into the air. And please, reader, do not be fooled into thinking that that mercury that China releases will stay in China. Remember, that in the Japan tsunami that much of that material ended up in the USA hours and days later, so that as China releases more mercury into the air, that in a few days all the continents have an increased mercury in the air that they breathe.
Pollution is global, especially mercury pollution for mercury has the two insidious features of being spread far and wide and a small quantity is lethal and disease causing. With those two characteristics- spread far and wide and only a little can do great harm, it is no wonder at all that mercury is to blame for 7 major diseases.
Now if Homosexual gay is 4% of the world population, has anyone surveyed what the old age diseases of mercury-- Alzheimers percentage is of old people. I had heard that at age 90, that 90% of the people who live to be 90 or older have Alzheimers? If that is true then at what old age do 6% or 4% of the population of old people have Alzheimers? Is it age 60 where 6% of the people that survived to age 60 have Alzheimers?
