One approach could be statistical analysis of a global data base via a modern super powerful computer system. Funding should be private donation only ie NO Gov't or corporate big pharma influencing, coercion etc...
When a similar study by the US CDC was done by their scientist and found a linkage between autism and immunisations a secret conference was held to discuss the results and implications. The scientist who discovered the linkage was hired away from CDC with a mega salary. The massive CDC data base developed for the study was purchased by big pharma and locked down as proprietary. Do we see a trend here ???
Truth will always go begging unless the public gets seriously pissed-off about spin, farrie tales, and big lies.
While third world culture certainly has a different path to "religious and lunatic murders" it also has a very antique medical path. It thus seems logical to compare and contrast the global statistics in light of historical external factors.

yes it does need to be looked at seriously.
my scientific thought ain't all that much --more of an observation.
my brother was born in 1954 -- now he has some rather severe mental handicaps and he has been disabled for most of his life. in a three year period around his birth --there was a number of boys born with the exact same problems. many grumbled it had something to do with fallout.
by 1960 this problem sort of left the area.
i was born in 1962. best i could tell boys born around here wee mostly OK mentally though some were a tad slow--
now boys born in the late 1960s around here started to have some pretty heavy personality problems and some logic problems. you the type who would argue with a pine tree.
boys born in the late 60s and early 1970 were going out by suicide during the 1980s. for a while it seemed like every time i turned on the TV there was a new teenage suicide on the news --and often in the most weird way.
i am beginning to suspect all these things are related in one way or the other.
maybe i am just getting old ??
