    Could turn out to be something in the environment. Law suit inc no doubt.

    If the cause is environmental, then it'd have to be something introduced very recently as the article states the area has been residential for close to 60 years.

    Perhaps someone has been spraying something they shouldn’t.

    There is some evidence that the prevalence of gastroschisis is higher in areas where surface water agricultural chemical levels are high and when conception occurs in the spring (the time when agricultural chemicals (eg, atrazine) are commonly applied)

    (Agrichemicals in surface water and birth defects in the United States. Acta Paediatr. 2009;98(4):664).
