      Pollution and other environmental factors may be threatening the
      intelligence of millions of people around the world, according to a new
      research review conducted by Chris Williams of London University.
      Environmental problems that can lead to lower IQs include lead, PCBs, and
      radiation. Epidemiologists have detected an increase in the number of
      children born with Down's syndrome that correlates with the explosion of
      the Chernobyl nuclear reactor in 1986. In Britain, one in 10 children
      has high enough levels of lead in their blood to affect intelligence, and
      in some African cities the ratio is nine children out of 10.
