Report reveals that one percent of US children, and growing, have autism

There has been a 600% increase in prevalence over the last two decades. From 1975 1 in 5000 affected, in 2009 it was 1 in 110!

(NaturalNews) The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has issued a new report showing that one out of every 110 children in America today have some form of autism. With an estimated three-quarters of a million children somewhere on the autism spectrum, child advocacy group Autism Speaks is calling on the federal government to increase research efforts to combat the disease.

The report, published in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report illustrates a 57-percent increase in autism cases between 2002 and 2006. A staggering 600-percent increase in the disease has occurred over the past two decades, plaguing boys more often than girls. Roughly one out of every 70 boys currently has some form of autism…

… For every child that gets diagnosed with autism, there are parents who wonder, "Did vaccines cause this?"

Rates of autism have skyrocketed in the last two decades, causing increasing numbers of parents to wonder what’s behind the disturbing trend. Autism clearly has something to do with neurological problems, and it’s entirely reasonable to suspect that the inflammatory chemicals used in vaccines as adjuvants may play a significant role in causing autism.

There may be other causes, too, such as exposure to pesticides, heavy metals, chemical solvents and the toxic chemicals used in personal care products. I rarely see children that aren’t bathed in toxic shampoos, skin lotions, sunscreens and soaps. The antibacterial ingredient in soap is a neurotoxic chemical, and even more neurotoxins are found in the food supply.

Autism could simply be the result of a cumulative burden of neurotoxic chemicals from multiple sources: Vaccines, consumer products, foods, medicines, household cleaners and more.
