The introduction of MMT into the United States has long been prohibited under an EPA finding that it violated the Clean Air Act[143]. The recent reversal of this decision by a Federal Appellate Court (Wall Street Journal, October 25, 1995) increases the importance of the present findings[144]. While the manufacturers have claimed that “no adverse health effects have been observed” from the use of MMT in Canada, traditional studies use standards of occupational exposure that do not consider interactions between manganese, lead, alcoholism, and dietary insufficiencies, and focus on health rather than on behavioral outcomes such as learning disabilities and crime that are sensitive to subclinical levels of toxicity[145].

Since aging pipes in public water systems often contain lead and manganese[117−120], this finding provides additional support for the neurotoxicity hypothesis. Finally, age of housing stock—often assumed to measure infants’ exposure to pica from leaded paint—is negatively associated with violence, suggesting that water supplies and environmental pollution are more likely than paint to serve as pathways for lead[121]. To insure that the findings were not an artifact of inaccurate statistics, these results were checked by using the same factors to predict rates of aggravated assault (a category of violent crime not confounded by reporting errors attributed to sexual assault, yet more frequent and hence more reliable in rural areas than homicide), property crime (to measure non-violent deviance), per capita welfare loads (an index of social disintegration), and median grade of education completed (Table IIIb-e).
