Offspring autism risk linked to pesticide exposure during pregnancy

“Past research has indicated that pregnant women exposed to high levels of air pollution have an increased risk of their child developing autism. Now, a new study from the MIND Institute at the University of California-Davis suggests that expectant mothers who live near fields and farms where chemical pesticides are applied are also at increased risk of having a child with autism or other forms of developmental delay…”

 

Yet another study disproving the “vaccines are linked to autism” theory. The increased numbers of autism, of gluten sensitivities, of allergies, of antibiotic resistance (and decreasing numbers of bees) are all most likely linked to our increased reliance on poorly-tested/-understood chemical agricultural treatments and processes.
