“Something in the water”?

In recent decades the incidence of various medical conditions has been on a rising trend. Changes in the gene-pool alone cannot account for the rapidity of these developments, and so environmental factors must have played a part; but it remains unclear what those environmental factors are.
Could it be that some of the recent changes in the mindset of Western society, such as the increased incidence of dysphoria, and the growth in the culture of shrill, self-righteous sawing-off of branches that all of us are sitting on, are also attributable wholly or partly to “something in the water”?
