Chemicals Used in Cosmetics May Be Tied to Increased Risk of Autism

Exposure in the womb to a group of endocrine-disrupting chemicals called phthalates was associated with autism traits in boys (but not girls) between ages 3 and 4 years, according to a new study.

However, fewer of these traits were observed in boys whose mothers took the recommended amount of folic acid during the first trimester, the findings suggest.

“Very few studies looked at autism and its associated traits, with inconsistent findings. We tried to look at this question in a large sample from a Canadian cohort that was designed specifically to look at potential developmental effects of exposure to environmental chemicals,” lead author Youssef Oulhote, assistant professor of biostatistics and epidemiology at UMass Amherst’s School of Public Health & Health Sciences, told Healthline.

Phthalates are commonly used in many products, including soap and cosmetics.

This is a good warning to future mothers and also everyone else because endocrine disrupting chemicals are all over the place in our food, water and of course cosmetics. I'm not entirely convinced phthalates are linked to Autism but maybe they play a role in weakening the body so that other things like vaccines and heavy metals can more easily damage a child's brain.

The folic acid connection is interesting and make me believe the pregnant women taking it probably were eating better and or taking other supplements as well that protect the body from dangerous chemicals like phthalates.

All and all this is good information to have. I posted about the dangerous chemicals in sun screen a while back and no we have to look out for cosmetics too. I don't know if they have organic cosmetics but if I was a women I'd be seeking them out.

Some of the research I have done into autism suggests it is linked to testosterone, and inversely to schizophrenia. Brain growth is more rapid during early childhood in ASD, and this seems to be a result of testosterone, at least in part. However, I don't agree with this because testosterone is rapidly declining today, and autism is rapidly increasing, so were it linked to excessive testosterone, it would have been more prevalent before testosterone began declining I think. My guess is that endocrine disrupting chemicals disrupt pathways testosterone normally acts through, and since they're not test, disrupt brain formation and result in ASD.

Another aspect of ASD is that it is a sociality disruption, and H.sapiens is proto-eusocial, uniquely amongst primates. It is very unlikely that H.neanderthalensis, with whom Sapiens hybridized, lived in villages, but instead lived in family groups, and hunted alone, or as a family, rather than in packs.

It has been hypothesized that ASD is a result of activating genes inherited from H.neanderthalensis, or that have been turned off during our transformation into a proto-eusocial species. This is intriguing, but remains unproven. Here's a very interesting 2+ hour vid:

Anyway, it's a good thing to avoid endocrine disrupting chemicals as a rule. Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC and CPVC) is apparently pretty bad about leaching into water, and it's what many people have in their home for water pipe. If possible, I'd have copper water pipe, but it's more expensive than plastic.

Thanks!

Edit: the last tag I see up there reading 'HIVE-110786'. Is that the tag for the new informationwar community? I read that by using such hive tags, one posts in the community they label. I'd like to do that, but as you can see, have very little grasp of how to join the one community I feel I would fit into. The video in the linked post is apparently not available.

If you could confirm or deny doing that would join me up, and if I'm wrong tell me what's right, I'd greatly appreciate it.

design... by design... most pesticides in gmo crops attack nervous system of insects... guess what autism is? add vacines with neuro toxins and all the bio accumulation in the western female body, add emf... they know what they do... they would even rape autistic child as long as they are of their taste (pedorape island).

this is a war, the fbi, doj, dod, cia sided with the billionaires.

"...the fbi, doj, dod, cia sided with the billionaires."

IMHO, they and many more, are the wholly owned assets of billionaires.

I agree this is war, and we are the intended fodder for that slavering beast.

Thanks!

your humble opinion is just awesome ! thanks a lot for sharing it, and sadly it makes total sense. Why do you think they accepted to become their assets? and when do you think they (as they know how to wage war) take their own independence and going fully warlord feudal or something along those lines, or do you think they prefer to be the war slaves of the billionaires, like the moosketaires in france, serving the raping kings? who knows... the future holds the coming reality :).

thanks again.

I asked a guy who did sketchy crap how he could sleep at night knowing what he did to good people, and he told me he 'slept in a big, expensive, comfortable bed.' These kinda guys like butter on their bread, and if they have to do terrible things to get their bread buttered, they'll do terrible things, and sleep in their big, expensive, comfortable beds at night.

They're not the kind of guys that overthrow their leaders and become warlords. That's risky. They just want to serve their psychopath bosses and retire in comfort. Until that's threatened by some disruption, they'll keep doing exactly what they're told.

The fall of the billionaires will disrupt them, hopefully terminally.

We'll see what happens.

even worst their teachers... they made them believe that a plant of the creation (5th day) could be illegal :) and worst look at the only thing they care is their reputations (and money and fame) illustrated by how the vast majority sided with Epstein friends in the USA or polanski in France or his highness monarch 2nd prince andrew in the UK...

at least Shynah isn't (yet (&again)) infected by this legal disease... at least on the child rape side... plants... anyway...

fight the plants, be ready to wage wars against the plagues... good luck with that and have fun, I am with the plagues :).
