Why is There an Autism Epidemic?

Although the mainstream media continues a non-stop propaganda campaign spreading of misinformation concerning the autism epidemic, an ever-growing body of research suggests that there can be many factors contributing to the epidemic of autism, with multiple causes triggering the manifestation of symptoms of autism even in a single person:

Factors include:

  • pollution of food, air, and water with pesticides, herbicides, various man-made chemicals and pharmaceuticals (which get into the water supply), and GMO crops
  • unsafe medical practices and drugs
  • depletion of essential nutrients in foods, including sulfur and Omega 3/DHA oils
  • genetic factors that may predispose a person to autism

Genetic factors seem to point to those with an impaired ability to remove toxins.  These genetic factors tend to run in families  with a history:

  • auto-immune diseases (diabetes, celiac, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia)
  • neurological issues (depression, anxiety, bipolar, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's)

Pollution of food and water:

  • GMO Crops have over 500 studies indicating they cause liver damage, cancer, reduce size of new-born lab animals, and ultimately cause infertility when consumed over several generations.
  • Man-made chemicals -  pesticides, herbicides, petroleum products, often act even in parts per billion as endocrine system disruptors and making epigentic changes (frequently silencing genes) - skewing the development of the fetus in the womb and young children.  The average newborn in the United States has 200-300 man-made chemicals in its body. 

There are aspects of mainstream medicine practices in pregnancy, childbirth and pediatrics that may be contributing factors including:

  • immunization of pregnant women for the flu vaccine
  • over-immunization of children with vaccines*
  • use of acetominophen (Tylenl) reduces levels of the neuro-protectant glutathione in pregnant women, infants, and young children.  A study in California indicated that children who had a vaccine reaction and were given acetominophen were eight times more likely to develop an autism spectrum disorder.
  • pharmaceuticals used to anesthetize women in childbirth and stimulate contractions (including Pitocin).** 
  • encouragement in use of Tylenol for infants, young children, and pregnant women, which depletes Glutathione, the primary anti-oxidant protectant of neurons
  • immunization of military personnel - soldiers and veterans have a 30% chance of having a child within the autism spectrum; there is speculation that this may be due to over-immunization - the Anthrax vaccine is particularly suspect

Increased incidences of autism are found in communities:

  • Living down-wind from a coal fired power plant (they release mercury in to the air) also is correlated to an increase in the incidence of autism - the closer the proximity to the plant, the greater the incidence.
  • Living in heavily polluted areas, such as Brick County, New Jersey.

* An epidemiological study of infant boys born across the U.S.between 1998-2002 found that boys immunized with Hepatits B at birth were three times more likely to develop and autism spectrum disorder.  This is but one of several findings concerning the link between immunizations and autism.  In September 2014, a freedom of information act request filed in the UK has forced Britain's Department of Health to release confidential documents outlining the details of the MMR vaccine's approval in the 1980's. These document reveal that the manufacturer of the vaccine knew there were problems with the vaccine causing a high rate of adverse effects in children, including encephalitis and other conditions associated with autism.  More

* Oxytocin stimulates contractions also is needed to stimulate the growth of the Hypothalamus-Neurohypophisal System (HNS) involved in emotional and social behaviors.   Newborn infants, especially males, need up to 10 days for this system to mature after birth. When the oxytocin level in the infant rises to a certain level (which normally occurs when the infant is nursing) the HNS stops development.  If the mother is given a Pitocin drip to stimulate contractions, this also pumps large amounts of Pitocin (the same as Oxytocin) into the baby at birth - which then causes the infant to stop development of the HNS at birth.  This may result in the child permanently having fewer receptors and means of producing oxytocin which leads to impaired development language, bonding and social skills.  The anesthetics currently used in the hospital birth process have also been implicated in intefering the development of the infant.
