Such a similar story

I found this on a great website (saferchemicals.org) that I’m linked to on Facebook.  This is almost identical to our story, so I thought I’d share this here.  It’s happening everywhere… still today… and to us, it happened 15 years ago.  I don’t know Ellie and her son, but we’re still connected in so many ways.   

Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families Stories

My son was born with no complications and he hit every milestone on time until he started to lose skills around 13 months: talking, sequencing, responding to his name, etc and he was diagnosed with Autism at 2. Thousands of parents live through this exact story every day – the numbers of affected families is staggering – 1 in 84 boys.

I don’t think it’s classic autism. I think our kids are suffering from environmental impacts too great for their undeveloped immune systems to handle. My son began to present autistic-like symptoms but it is impossible for a child to develop normally on schedule without a healthy brain. His brain was once healthy but over time, his body could not process the toxic chemicals and metals we are all exposed to in our furniture, toys he chewed on, stuffed animals, bath gels, vaccine ingredients and everything else.

My son was only fed organic foods, lots of veggies and fruits but he has incredibly high levels of lead, cadmium, mercury, aluminum, antimony and other toxic metals and chemicals in his blood and tissues. How is this possible?

It is impossible for America’s children to be getting so sick, so frequently diagnosed with diabetes, autism, ADD, ADHD, allergies, asthma and so many cancers at the rate that these are occurring… WITHOUT AN ENVIRONMENT CAUSATION.

The FDA, our government, congress – and citizens need to demand better for ourselves and our children. What is happening is disgusting and on all of our hands if we don’t change this.

Good, sustainable, responsible, ethical movements are happening everyday in the country and we should all be led by our government in good example.

ACT NOW to help me recover my son and help others to avoid what my family is coping with everyday.

Thank you!
