Previous research in environmental and occupational health has suggested that fluctuations in the sex ratios of births might provide a useful early warning to the possible health effects of toxins or other stresses in the environment. To examine further this hypothesis, we investigated the sex ratios of births in an area in central Scotland which contained two incineration plants. Analyses of the sex ratios, at various levels of geographical detail and using 3-dimensional mapping techniques, in… CONTINUE READING
