This is the latest shocking statistic. Maybe we are more hyper-aware than 20 years ago - but ASD is not normal, and we should be outraged by this statistic!
The evidence points to Toxic Overload which is damaging their fragile genetic structure. Immunizations have been identified as one source of toxins, but they are everywhere. Our environment is overflowing with toxins - so much so that poisonous toxins are even found in mother's milk and the umbilical chords of newborns.
As a parent, you may be panicking right now. Yes - we want you to be aware - we want you to get angry - so angry that you'll help us make changes. We need to shut down the sources of this toxic pollution. We all know about air pollution from factories and vehicles. However, the greatest threat to our health and that of our children today comes from our food.
The survival of every cell in our body depends on good, wholesome nutrition. Vegetables and fruits every color of the rainbow, nuts, seeds, natural whole grains, naturally raised and healthy animals and fish all have important roles in cell nourishment. But natural, healthy sources of these foods are getting harder to find. Why? Because we douse our foods with pesticides, herbicides, and more. We feed our animals these toxic foods and raise them in unhealthy conditions creating animals plagued by disease and filled with stress hormones.
Our precious water - that which makes up over 70% of our body - is so toxic that we must filter it and add more chemicals to make it "safe" to drink.
My purpose is not to completely depress you. I am here to tell you that YOU CAN DO SOMETHING about this today. Your body is a remarkable miracle of strength and healing. What it needs to heal itself and cleanse itself of the poisons is beautiful, whole-food nutrition and clean water. Nothing fortified, pre-packaged, super-sized, deep-fried or instant can feed your body the nutrients it craves.
So where do you start.
Pay attention when you shop - read labels.
Buy organic when you can.
Buy grass fed and free-range beef and poultry. Yes it costs more but you only need 3-5oz a day - less for some.
Use reverse osmosis water.
Get rid of fluoride toothpaste.
Get rid of cleaning chemicals.
Use natural soaps, shampoos, cosmetics.
Probably the most important thing you can do right now - today - is to start feeding you body something everyday that will supply a mega-serving of super healthy phytonutrients from a whole food source. This will do two things:
1) your body will start cleansing out the toxins and
2) your body will have the nutrition it needs to repair and rebuild damaged cells.
Please don't let anyone tell you that you can get what you need just by eating food. That just isn't true anymore - at least right now. When we have a chance to heal Mother Earth, that may become true again.
There are many sources of healing nutrition available. I have researched quite a few and found several that I truly believe make a difference. We have seen countless cases of ASD improve and even reverse when young bodies are given healing nutrition.
