Have you ever wondered why there are so many children developing autism? Indeed, this dread disease has increased its hold on children over the past 15-20 years. What used to be an occasional diagnosis has become an epidemic. Why?

It is my belief that autism and allergies in small children are caused by the flame retardant put into children's pajamas. These things were rarely head of until they started putting that stuff in the fabric of their pajamas. I wish some scientists would study this, but be prepared for a fight from the manufacturers.

I agree with CHIEF DUBIE. I can recall that the US government spent millions of dollars to create a pen (ink) that can write while in space, the Russians used a pencil that costs nothing.

Autism is actually triggered by a number of environmental substances, food items, vaccinations, etc. The reactions to these substances that produce the symptoms of the disorder can be eliminated.

There is a better recognition of many learning disabilities and children, who even 10 years ago would have dies, are now living. Also, we are having children much later in life and this also has an effect on their long term health. I have seen a study in schizophrenia being related to children of older parents in that they are more likely to develop it.

That the pollution in the environment affects our health is incontroversial and that too much of any chemical will have an effect on us. We are also eating a much wider range of foods yet suffer from food intolerances and allergies. Food hygiene is still an issue as is the fact that it is contaminated eg sea food with toxins, vegetables with insecticide and animals with food additives and poor feeding.

AIDS came from primates about 100 years ago, it is just that travel and more available sex has helped spead a terrible disease. Other sexual diseases have been around a lot longer than the current governments so I doubt that they are using it to control us.

I suspect that there is a lot that governments are aware of that are not good for us but suspect that it is for companies that control politicians that unhealthy products are in the system, not to control us.
