  1. Inside new autism statistics

    Inside new autism statistics

    The numbers are so big they hardly seem real: A 30 percent increase in autism in just the past two years.

    That means 1 in 68 8-year-olds -- or roughly 1 child in every two or three third-grade classrooms -- now have this life-changing condition, according to the startling new autism statistics from the CDC.

    Mainstream medicine is trying to pretend that these numbers are due to “increasing awareness," “earlier diagnosis" and a “changing definition" of autism.

    But you and I know that's bunk.

    I'm convinced the real reason for this surge in autism statistics is all the toxins we're routinely exposed to.

    They're damaging enough to adults, but they can be especially devastating to the still-developing brain of a child, especially when they're exposed in the womb.

    Children born in homes with vinyl floors, for example, have double the risk of autism -- and it's almost certainly because of the chemical phthalates used in that flooring. BPA -- the chemical found in plastics, canned goods, store receipts and more -- has also been linked to autism. (Read more here.)

    Common contaminants found in U.S. drinking water can also damage the brain and cause autism.

    But one of the biggest causes of autism is metals exposure. Many toxic metals can cross the blood-brain barrier and do lasting and even permanent damage.

    And I'm not afraid to say it: One all-too-common source of metals exposure is vaccines.

    I don't care if you're pro vaccination or not, that's a decision I'll leave up to you and your family. But I will say that it's absolutely irrational that kids are routinely given so many vaccines all at once, and that many of these shots still contain mercury, aluminum and other metals despite the fact that they can be produced without them.

    If you have or are expecting a child, grandchild or even great grandchild in your life, take steps to remove as many of these chemicals from your home and your diet as you can, and work closely with a holistic medical doctor who can give you the full story on vaccines.

    And if you have a kid who already has the condition, work with that same doctor -- because natural detoxification programs combined with strict dietary changes can make all the difference in the world.

  2. Arsenic in water linked to heart disease

    Low arsenic exposure can kill you

    The lies are flying out of Washington so fast and furious that it's impossible to keep track of them all -- but there's one I want to you to remember, because it's one that could cost you your health if you fall for it.

    It's the FDA's ludicrous claim that the levels of arsenic in water and food are safe.

    I told you last week how that's just not true.

    And now, new research backs me up, confirming that even low levels of arsenic exposure can increase your risk of death by heart attack or stroke by 50 percent.

    And the government has the nerve to call that safe?

    Clearly, there's nothing safe about it -- because the volunteers tracked in the study weren't poisoning victims. They were Americans just like you -- people exposed to low-but-steady levels of arsenic in water, mostly through tainted tap water.

    And along with increasing your risk of heart attack and stroke, those same "safe" levels of arsenic can boost your risk of heart disease, peripheral artery disease, carotid atherosclerosis and more, according to the study -- and those are just your cardiovascular risks.

    It's not just arsenic in water, either.

    The FDA's most recent claim was specifically about arsenic in rice, and a second new study proves even that's dangerous (of course). This one finds that the levels of arsenic in rice can cause damage on a cellular level -- specifically the type of damage that can lead to cancer.

    So much for "safe."

    I'd say skip the rice, but I know many people will choose to eat it anyway. At the very least, keep it away from children (especially babies) and limit it to an occasional side dish rather than a daily staple.

    And when you do eat rice, choose organic brown rice grown in California, which studies have shown contain some of the lowest levels of arsenic.

    You can also get rid of the arsenic in water by installing a reverse osmosis filter or using a water distiller. Either one will set you back a couple a hundred dollars, but they're highly effective at removing contaminants -- including drugs, metals and chemical waste -- which makes them well worth the money.

    And if you think there's a chance you've been exposed to arsenic or any other toxic metal, seek the help of a holistic physician who can test your levels and work on a natural detox program.

  3. Lead exposure blocks learning in kids

    Low levels of exposure to lead can block development in childhood and slow learning -- and a new study shows how it can delay reading skills.
  4. The campaign to limit your options

    One of the reasons I've been able to cure supposedly "incurable" chronic diseases is that I know how to find the cause.
