What Role Does The Environment Play In Autism?
On January 26, 2015 Web MD Health News published an articled titled "Genes May Not Explain Autism That Runs in Families" The article written by Brenda Goodman, MA and reviewed by Brunilda Nazario, MD suggests that "in families where two children have been diagnosed with the disorder, siblings don't often share the same gene changes.
The new study fits into a larger body of research suggesting the genetics of autism are still poorly understood. It also raises the possibility that the disorder isn't usually inherited, even with it runs in families." According to one of the researchers, "one of the factors could be a shared environment or a common condition during pregnancy."
According to the article "previous studies have shown that only about 10% of autism cases can be explained by penetrant genes - genes in which a specific change nearly always leads to the same symptom or disease."
Charis Eng, MD, PhD and chair of the Genomic Medicare Institute at Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, said "most cases of autism seem to be rooted in 150 or so genes changes that are too weak to cause symptoms on their own. They only become a problem when a person has a combination of changes that tip them into a disease or a condition like autism.
It could be that some common environmental factor, like exposure to chemical, tips a child with several weak 'risk genes' into autism. Because so many different families were studied, though, it seems unlikely that it would be the same factor in every case."
A Message From Life Choice's CEO and Founder Dr Eldon Dahl, ND
Here we see the incredible human body how it works in perfect symmetry when everything is normal.
Today, things are not normal: We have a diet that consists of hormonal genetic changes such as GMO; vaccinations with added aluminum as the carrier to trigger an immune response along with other heavy metals such as lead and mercury; Chemicals toxicity of unparalleled amounts in almost everything from our processed food, new carpets in our homes, to gardening chemicals deemed to be safe, to farming and agriculture methods and the dangerous electromagnetic charges to our bodies and minds with Wi-Fi.
Not many places are safe anymore, even our homes are toxic mines. No wonder the combination of changes tip the scale in autism as it does for every other disease as well.
