Autism – Is Your Child Safe?

Children born in polluted areas more likely to have autism.

The unborn fœtus in the womb has hundreds of toxins in umbilical cord blood. Babies are pre-polluted before they are even born. Personal care, cosmetic ingredients and smoking are the worst culprits.

The answer lies in avoiding the single greatest health hazard in your life and that of your family.

According to researchers, “Women who live in areas with polluted air are up to twice as likely to have an autistic child than those living in communities with cleaner air, according to a new study. Building on two other smaller, regional studies, the Harvard University research is the first to link air pollution nationwide with autism. It also is the first to suggest that baby boys may be more at risk for autism disorders when their mothers breathe polluted air during pregnancy. Babies born in areas with high airborne levels of mercury, diesel exhaust, lead, manganese, nickel and methylene chloride were more likely to have autism than those in areas with lower pollution. The strongest links were for diesel exhaust and mercury.

Babies born in areas of the United States with high airborne levels of mercury, diesel exhaust, lead, manganese, nickel and methylene chloride were more likely to have autism than those in areas with lower pollution. The strongest links were for diesel exhaust and mercury.”

“The striking similarity with our results and the previous studies adds a tremendous amount to the weight of evidence that pollutants in the air might be causing autism in children,” said Andrea Roberts, a research associate at the Harvard University School of Public Health and lead author of the new study published online in Environmental Health Perspectives.
Scientists have been trying to figure out whether a variety of environmental exposures are linked to autism, a neurological disorder diagnosed in one out of every 50 U.S. children between the ages of 6 and 17.

Simply, don’t trust anything on shop shelves.

The good news is that there are ethical, non-toxic products out there. Many claim to be so but are far from it. In over 30 years in health care it has been an expensive research study on my part, to find exactly what is and isn’t safe. In a perfect world, this is all that would be available – but the truth is over 90% of products out there are not safe and there is no controlling factor. Money talks and sadly, pharma can and does get away with poisoning the world. The same companies that make toxic chemicals also make personal care products – and also make the drugs that supposedly ‘fix’ us. Think about that.

I advise all my patients to become a ‘member’ of iHerb for free, and access, at wholesale prices, actual medicinal personal care and cleaning products. Cleaning your house should never mean making it clean at any cost – ie poisoning your family. Such products are not available in store. In fact, even ‘natural, pure and organic’ products can contain just a portion of such ingredients, and still be toxic.

The work has been done. There is no need for more and more celebrities to go out and try to re-invent the wheel. Just search the site using keywords such as non toxic, pure, SLS free, organic, safe and so on. And be sure to replace everything that could affect your family’s health –

  • Dental care
  • Hair care
  • Skin care
  • Cosmetics
  • Personal care
  • Deodorants & perfumes
  • Dishwashing
  • Laundry
  • Household cleaners

The good news is that all of these things can be ordered – wholesale – online and delivered to your door –
