    This is a disconcerting report about an area in France (Ain) where there is a concern about an unusually high number of children born with a rare defect called upper limb reduction, disconcerting as there doesn’t seem to be an explanation. Must be very worrying for future parents!

    It looks very similar to thalidomide from years ago.

    Lead poisoning can cause lack of bone and muscle growth.

    Lead is a cumulative toxicant so you would need to be in constant close contact with it wouldn’t you Dom? Don’t know if there are any activities in the area spoken about that would mean exposure in that way, I imagine research into the cause is covering all angles.

    I read they are also inquiring on pesticides, as a possible cause.

    I thought the use of pesticides was under strict control Babeth but that doesn’t always mean anything does it?
