Study Finds Roughly Half of Americans Born in the 1960s

Might Have a Lower IQ Due to Leaded Gasoline

Leaded gasoline has been a major problem for the world for a long time. As of last year, most of the world has stopped selling the last bits of leaded gasoline. However, from the 1920s – when leaded gas was invented – through 1996, most of the world still used leaded gas extensively, and now we are paying the price.

If these leaded gas fumes enter the brain, they can disrupt nerve signaling and, at higher levels, kill brain cells. Young children are particularly susceptible due to the metal disrupting brain development. This is similar to breathing in lead paint fumes or ingesting lead paint flakes.
