The Thinking Moms' Revolution website put out an amazing piece on Feb 20, 2013. (And seriously, the mothers in the autism community are the smartest women around since they're dealing with a disaster that the world has yet to recognize.)
It's by someone named only as "Mountain Mama." The title is heartbreaking. She calls it, How I Gave My Son Autism.
Mothers who understand the real reasons behind that autism epidemic will easily identify with what's written here.
"I am admitting here for all the world to see: I gave my son Autism. I did it. Me. And no one can ever take that away."
Mountain Mama continues,
"So . . . how did I give my son autism? I wish I could say it was one thing - one thing that I could take back that would make things neat and easy, but it wasn't. It was mistake after mistake, assault after assault. The following are the biggest mistakes I made to which I attribute my son's descent into autism. I'm going to provide links that are easily readable and understandable that contain links to the research rather than providing links to the research itself. A simple Google search about any one of these topics will provide more information than you could ever want. Here goes . . ."
Then she lists the recommended products, medical procedures, and drugs that are harming the health of children. This is a list of items familiar to lots of moms. They trusted. They believed they were doing the best for their kids. They believed these things were safe.
Our children are more
fragile than ever. Our schools are filled with kids on behavior meds for
ASD, ADD, ADHD, and more, kids with asthma, allergies, diabetes,
seizure disorders and the list goes on and on. Health forms take up
several pages now because there are so many things wrong with kids
today. While health officials and mainstream medicine have yet to
notice all the sick kids everywhere, moms know the truth.
