Autism Rates Have Increased Dramatically? Is there a Connection to EMF Radiation?
There is a growing body of evidence to strongly suggest there may be a connection. We've been looking at reports from around the world, and there is enough here to cause concern. We admit part of the alarming increase may be an increase in reporting, an increase in awareness, an increase in diagnosing the problem, but given that, there does still seem to be huge increases.
The CDC - Centers for Disease Control and Prevention state that Autism rates have risen from 1 in 150 in 2000 to 1 in 88 in 2008, nearly double the estimate a decade ago.
About 1 in 88 children has been identified with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) according to estimates from CDC's Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Network.
About 1 in 6 children in the U.S. had a developmental disability in 2006-2008, ranging from mild disabilities such as speech and language impairments to serious developmental disabilities, such as intellectual disabilities, cerebral palsy, and autism.
Journal of the Australasian College of Nutritional & Environmental Medicine reported that there has been a sixty-fold increase of autism since the 1970's
Between 1998 and 2007, wireless technology usage increased from about 200 million worldwide users to 300 billion users. Concurrently, there has been almost a sixty-fold increase of autism since the 1970's, with the most significant increase coming in the last 10 years. He has some ideas of why these 2 statistics might be connected. Read More
Autism Parenthood.com reports Autism has increased SIXTY Fold since the late 1970s, that 60 times more cases!!
Autism has increased sixty-fold since the late 1970s. But autism rates really took off during the past 10 years. The scientific community is not really sure what causes autism. Is it genetic? Environmental? Do vaccines which contain mercury contribute? No one seems to know for sure.
PubMedicine.gov published an abstract stating artificially generated electromagnetic radiation may be a factor in the increasing autism rates.
I suggest that the developing nervous system of an infant may be particularly prone to temporal noise that can interfere with the initial calibration of brain networks such as the mirror neuron system. The most likely source of temporal noise in the environment is artificially generated electromagnetic radiation. To date, there has been little evidence that electromagnetic radiation poses a direct biological hazard.
These are just a few of the recent reports that we have pulled together.
Does EMF radiation cause Autism? Do vaccine's cause autism? Are environmental toxins and pesticides to blame?
This is obviously a complicated issue, with many factors involved, including genetics. Is it possible that genetics can be a contributing factor in sensitivity to EMF? We have talked in the past about a "body burden". The premise is that our bodies can sustain health when exposed to a certain amount of EMF,environmental toxins and other substances, but there comes a time when it can no longer tolerate the level of bombardment, and either becomes hypersensitive to one, or even all of these factors.
The autism rate has risen since 1970 from 1 in 10,000 to 1 in 166! Although this can't be directly linked to EMF at this point, it does seem reasonable to think that since this is one of the fastest growing changes in our environment that it might be a factor.
In addition to Autism, there are numerous reports linking ADD/ADHD and EMF
We do know that Children's brains Absorb more Radiation.

Bottom line - the facts are not all in, but while experts debate the issues your children may be the lab rats helping them gather data.
What can you do? While we don't suggest that we have an answer to everything, for everyone, we do know that having a BioElectric Shield that protects them from EMF has helped many children since 1990
You can protect your children from the time they are born with a BioElectric Shield
You'll rest easier, and so will your children.
