Chemical exposure during fetal development to blame for Autism

•, by: Derek Henry
Autism rates have risen from 1:10,000 in 1981 to 1:68 in 2014. Multiple studies have shown that the prevalence of toxins in our environment to which children are exposed during their developmental stages are the main culprit; however, many other factors should be considered as well, including GMOs and vaccinations.

The multitude of dangers and the associated cover ups

New research has revealed that autism and intellectual disability rates are linked to exposure to harmful factors during congenital development. A professor of genetic medicine and human genetics at the University of Chicago, stated:

"Essentially what happens is during pregnancy there are certain sensitive periods where the fetus is very vulnerable to a range of small molecules -- from things like plasticisers, prescription drugs, environmental pesticides and other things. Some of these small molecules essentially alter normal development. Autism appears to be strongly correlated with rate of congenital malformations of the genitals in males across the country, this gives an indicator of environmental load and the effect is surprisingly strong..."
