Health and Environmental Illness

Resources about environmental illness and non-drug treatments


Autism shares some characteristics with environmental illness.

It's possible, as one theory goes, that autism is environmental illness with developmental consequences. Reportedly, many mothers of autistic children have chronic fatigue syndrome. Could there be a shared metabolic condition?

However, the most obvious feature of autism is that it is the result of brain damage.

Biomedical treatments for autism address brain damage, metabolic problems, and poisoning, with methods similar or identical to non-drug treatments for environmental illness.
