The company which measured the uranium content in the hair of children is not releasing the results, I sent them several messages. The company is keeping discretely silent!
I have no doubt that the source of uranium is water/food. I have data on uranium content of water in several places in India; maximum value is about 50 micrograms per litre; It is not an unusual value. The children whose hair tested positive for uranium come various States in India. Competent scientists are following up the claim. Thanks to the list members I realized that claim of excess uranium in hair has been made in USA on earlier occasions. Some gullible parents were so scared that they searched for methods to remove uranium. One suggestion was to eat clay! It is known that clay can absorb heavy metals
Till September 2008, the head of the institution which is treating the children in Punjab claimed that the children are suffering from poisoning due to mercury. Recently he claimed that the children are poisoned by uranium after he received advice from a foreign NGO. We shall see how the story unfolds itself!

No doubt there are a lot of questions to be asked about this study that linked heavy metal content of hair to autism, and no doubt motivations are important. Yet if the study was conducted properly, this should be pursued.
As to local power plants or chemical plants being the source of these heavy metals, I would first ask if they have looked inside their own home. One Bordeaux granite countertop in California produced an XRF result of 10,260 ppm of Thallium. Several other countertop slabs have been found with uranium at or above source grade. Stone industry testing has long shown that heavy metals are quite common in granite sold as building material, even what I call "courthouse" granite, plain jane stone.
Industries need to be aware of the possibility that these toxins, be they heavy metals or radiation/radon exposures might not come from their industry but from building materials.
