Local Environmental Health Researchers

In Discover Magazine’s 2007 review they say, “A further study in October of last year found an average ratio of female to male births of 54:46 in about 90 Canadian communities, a shift that James Argo of the IntrAmericas Centre for Environment and Health in Ontario attributes to dioxin pollution from nearby oil refineries, metal smelters, coke ovens, and pulp mills.

Hmmmm…my daughter was born in 2006. Is she part of this growing trend of fewer boys?

Possible story angle for Environmental Health Perspectives or CFI’s Innovation Canada.
