Toxins, Vaccines

A Scientist Has Discovered The Cause For Autism and It Is Hiding in Your Medicine Cabinet.


2977956_sAutism rates in the US are rising at such an alarming rate that it has become a much talked about epidemic. For a few years now, vaccines have been one of the biggest suspects as the cause for autism, with strong camps on either side of the issue. But what if everyone is focusing so much on the vaccine debate that they are missing the elephant in the room?

Think about it for a second. A parent takes their baby in to a wellness check up and the child gets caught up on their vaccination schedule. Usually, later that day, children will act fussy, irritable and a little feverish and sick. When this happens, what do many parents do?  They reach into their medicine cabinet and pull out their infant/children pain reliever and fever reducer to help their child be more comfortable.

Now, research has been done to show that one of the most common pain relievers, acetaminophen,  could cause autism in susceptible children. The overload could cause a chain reaction leading to overproduction of N-acetylp-benzoquinone imine (NAPQI). This reduces the body’s ability to detox harmful chemicals, which leads to serious damage from free radicals.

Some doctors in America actually advise parents to start giving their children acetaminophen up to 5 days before getting vaccinated as a sort of preventative treatment for symptoms. Researcher Dr. William Shaw, who has supervised several different departments at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other organizations and who himself has a child who has autism, has noted that some children who received this acetaminophen dosage had autistic regression symptoms that began before they were even vaccinated. Add to this the fact that the current CDC recommendations for immunizations are no less than 14 vaccinations before the age of 2, and you may begin to see how the acetaminophen load can rise to toxic levels very quickly.

Besides autism, acetaminophen has also been hypothesized to cause asthma and attention deficit with hyperactivity (ADHD) in susceptible children. Unborn infants may also be at risk if pregnant mothers use acetaminophen.

Interestingly, in support of this hypothesis, it was pointed out that Cuba, while having one of the most highly vaccinated populations in the world, has an autism rate that is 298 times lower than the autism rate in the United States. Acetaminophen is not approved as an over-the-counter (OTC) drug, so when baby has a fever connected to a vaccination in Cuba, parents either wait it out or bring the child back in to the doctor for a prescription of metamizole, a drug that is banned in the U.S. The statistics can’t lie. It may be time to take a serious hard look into acetaminophen and protect our children and grandchildren from the autism epidemic.

    There is now more evidence supporting the hypothesis that acetaminophen may be a causal factor in autism. Three large human population studies have shown increased risk of adverse neurodevelopment in offspring from prenatal use of acetaminophen. The first, by Brandlistuen et al., found severely adverse developmental outcomes at 3 years of age (autism phenotypes) from prolonged use in pregnancy. Additionally, Liew et al. and Thomson et al. found increased risk of ADHD and hyperkinetic disorders. Animal models have also shown adverse neurological effects from prolonged use (Viberg, Dean, Blecharz-Klin, Posadas, Lichtensteiger) . The most recent study by van den Driesche et al. in which 7 days of acetaminophen use reduced testosterone by 45% supports earlier studies suggesting that acetaminophen is a strong endocrine disruptor. Exposure to other endocrine disruptors have been associated with the development of autism. More research is highly warranted.
