Autism & EMF
What is Autism?Autism was first identified as a form of neurological /impairment/behavioural disorder in 1911 by Swiss Psychiatrist Eugen Bleuler. Today it is classed as a neurodevelopment characteristic in which the patient displays any one or one of the following conditions:
- Impaired social interaction
- Impaired linguistics
- Impaired & or repetitive behaviour patterns
- Impaired social imagination
- Impaired sensory awareness/processing
Causes of AutismThere is no scientifically proven cause to the development of autism. Genetics influences have being cited with some validation. The application of the MMR vaccine has been arguably the most controversial of the underlying causes proposed, but a proven causable pathway remains to be accepted by the scientific medical research community.
Environmental InfluencesThere is an exponential increase in the number of ASD cases being diagnosed annually 1. Environmental influences, such as airborne pollutants, toxins in food, and exposure to EMF sources from conception to birth and into the first years of life are considered to be extremely hazardous to developing cell function, this invisible airborne pollutant may be the critical factor leading to impaired neurological development in the case of Autism/ADHD. A number of scientific studies have identified improved cognitive and behavioural performance after the Autistic child has been moved to a location with considerably reduced exposure to EMF than were he had been living previously.
