From lead in toys to pharmaceuticals in drinking water, what is the
environmental impact on our children?
PRESS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
With all the discussion regarding Autism, the role the environment plays has largely been ignored. In a recent poll conducted by Integrative Practitioner, over 70% of respondents said that changes in the environment are responsible for the epidemic rise in Autism.
The recent toy recalls, including the popular Hannah Montana line of toys and cosmetics marketed for children, have been shown to contain high degrees of lead, which studies have shown to affect brain development, which can lead to Autism.
Other environmental factors – from drinking water to plastic toys to playground material – are under scrutiny for containing material that can be harmful to kids.
“Children have no voice,” said Dr. Lawrence D. Rosen, a board-certified general pediatrician and a nationally recognized expert in Pediatric Integrative Medicine. “It’s horrific we are destroying our children, when we can see evidence that our environment is impacting their health, from the toys they play with to the air they breath.”
Dr. Rosen is a member of the Integrative Practitioner Advisory Board and part of the on-line peer-to-peer discussion regarding children’s health and the environment.
