How Toxins Are Changing Childhood

The number of (largely untested) chemicals in our environment is on the rise, as are the rates of autism, cancer, and other serious health problems affecting kids. KIWI investigates
 this “silent pandemic”—and reveals how parents can fight back.

…In 2014, Dr. Landrigan and Phillippe Grandjean, M.D., an adjunct professor of environmental health at the Harvard School of Public Health, published a paper in the journal The Lancet calling the effects on children’s cognitive development a “silent pandemic of neurodevelopmental toxicity.”

…“You need to remember that there are things you can do to limit exposure and that healthy factors can counterbalance the harm of chemicals—most important, a loving, supportive family environment and a nutritious diet.” He and other experts say taking these steps can make a difference:

EAT ORGANIC…
DRINK FILTERED WATER…
PASS UP FOOD THAT COMES FROM ANIMALS TREATED WITH ANTIBIOTICS…
CUT BACK ON CANNED FOOD…
AVOID USING PLASTIC FOOD CONTAINERS…
VACUUM AND DUST WITH A DAMP RAG OR SPONGE EVERY TWO OR THREE DAYS…
USE NATURAL PEST-KILLING PRODUCTS…
TRYING TO GET PREGNANT? TAKE FOLIC ACID…

Autism risk and exposure to agricultural pesticides in the CHARGE Study

US children born in 1992 had a 1 in 150 chance of being autistic. That has increased in 2002 to 1 in 68 risk. I believe now its 1 in 50. Children born in 2025 will have a 50% chance being born autistic according to senior researcher, Stephanie Seneff. Studies abound. Here’s one researcher discussing the Charge Study.

Monsanto’s glyphosate (Roundup) causing an epidemic of autism, Alzheimer’s, and gut diseases.

“The rate at which diseases like autism (along with Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and others) are growing would be unheard of just 50 years ago. You can’t simply discount this phenomenon as the result of ‘better screening and diagnosis.’ In the past 5 years alone, autism rates have increased from 1/150 to 1/50. This is an environmental epidemic; it isn’t genetic…

Aluminum and glyphosate specifically interrupt the workings of the pineal gland (melatonin sulfate), leading to high rates of autism…

n fact, industrial claims don’t match the science on RoundUp. It is often used because it is considered one of the ‘safest’ of all herbicides. This claim is touted by Monsanto and other chemical pushers, but it turns out that RoundUp is one of the least safe herbicides on the market.” Dr. Stephanie Seneff, Senior Researh Scientist at MIT
