Environmental Toxins Linked to Rise in Autism

Environmental Toxins

Thirty years ago, autism was a condition that was considered rare and most people did not know anyone who was dealing with this challenge. Today, statistics indicate as many as one if 50 children may have autism. Dr. Mercola addressed this topic in a recent article (click here to read the entire article). He made several interesting points:

  • Mounting research indicates that brain disorders are the result of excessive exposure to toxins from multiple sources, including the mother, while in utero
  • Fluoride alone, which is still being added to many public water supplies around the US, can contribute to a seven-point drop in a child’s IQ score, on average
  • When the US National Toxicology Program was enacted in 1978, some 62,000 chemicals that were already in use were simply grandfathered in, even though they’d never been tested for toxicity

For several years now, I have focused on eliminating toxins and chemicals from my life. My efforts have really paid off in a big way. My doctor tells me that my health just continues to improve and I can affirm this is true by how much better I feel. This is a journey that is on-going and Young Living Essential Oils has been a huge part of my journey. Once you start on a personal path to wellness, you begin to see more and more benefits of a toxin-free life.

If you are located in northern Minnesota, I will be teaching a class Thursday evening, May 1 in Pengilly, Minnesota that will focus on ADD/ADHD and Autism. Contact me for details and to register for this free class.

I encourage you to look closely at the research about how toxins relate to autism, and what things might be contributing to the challenges presented by it. I affirm you in your journey to lovingly support and nurture your loved one. I also encourage you to take a close look at the awesome products available from Young Living Essential Oils… Products that are pure, toxin-free and will support you in this journey.

Let’s start a conversation about ways to support a healthy lifestyle that lowers exposure to toxins in our environment and about ways to reduce risks for autism in our families and communities.
