Parental Age Has Different Impact on Autism, Schizophrenia

Children born to parents who are 35 or older are at an increased risk of autism, and the risk continues to rise with parental age, a new study suggests, according to Spectrum News online. For schizophrenia, the increased risk is limited to those born to mothers in their teens or early 20s.

The findings are a result of an observational study of Danish health histories of over 1.7 million people that adds to other concerns about the root causes of autism. Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) affects an estimated 1 in 50 American children. A growing number of children — possibly as many as 1 of 6 — also struggle with developmental and speech delays, and motor disorders, and scientists are desperate to pinpoint the causes.

There are many theories about the origins of autism, but some research supports the idea that environmental exposures play a significant role in the development of ASD. For example, glyphosate researcher Stephanie Seneff, Ph.D., is convinced part of the autism problem is related to the fact that virtually everyone is eating processed foods and/or foods contaminated with glyphosate-based pesticides like Roundup, both of which are extremely detrimental to your microbiome. Glyphosate also negatively impacts the mitochondria, so it really delivers a double whammy.

Seneff also believes that glyphosate may in fact act as a transporter for aluminum (a common vaccine adjuvant) into the brain. It also appears to transport arsenic into the kidneys. It is also strongly correlated with damage to your gut flora and chronic diseases rooted in gut dysfunction — all common problems of children with autism.
