1 in 68 Children with Autism:  This Should Be All Over the News Media!by Beth Lambert

The statistics are frightening enough on their own.

  • 1 in 68 children has autism (and this number is growing!).  In some communities (e.g., Somali immigrants in Minnesota), the statistics are even higher.
  • 1 in 8 children has asthma.
  • 1 in 10 children has ADHD.
  • 1 in 6 children has a learning disorder.
  • 1 in 80 children has celiac disease (a hugely underdiagnosed condition)

But what is even more frightening is that it seems like no one is even paying attention to the fact that millions of children in this country are sick.  Millions.  Some have diagnoses, some do not, but they are all affected.

Why isn’t this all over the evening news?  How is it that the news media can follow Lindsey Lohan’s every misstep but seems to be missing one of the greatest health epidemics of our time?

From time to time, you do hear about autism in the news media, but no one seems to be connecting the dots to other chronic illnesses.

No one seems to understand that the epidemic of autism is connected to the epidemics of asthma, ADHD, food allergies, celiac disease, gluten intolerance, chronic constipation, behavioral disorders and many other conditions.

What is causing autism in some children is causing asthma, food allergies, and ADHD in others. These conditions all have the same root causes.

It is time to wake up to our new reality.  Children today are sick and we need to sound the alarm bells. . . Now!

    When you put adjuvants such as aluminum in the vaccines you lower glutathione levels in the cells. Glutathione is our bodies master detoxifier. When you put antibiotics in the vaccines you compromise the enzymes in the gut. This causes you to become gluten sensitive. If you continue to eat gluten because you are not aware you are gluten sensitive, your brain continues to come under attack. Vaccines lower the immune system and now you become susceptible to for example ear infections. Now antibiotics are prescribed causing further micro flora dysfunction. Congratulations to the many Pediatricians out there who have created chronic health conditions in our children. You have definitely found a way to keep yourselves employed at the expense of injuring and killing children.
