Toxic Childhood

WOW! Last night I read an article a friend recommended to me, about how in late 2009 they were testing newborn infants umbilical cords and found that most had been exposed to over 200 different chemicals before they are even born.

I started googling the topic and was shocked to what I found. Some people insist that this affecting our children. Others are saying the chemicals are innocent until proven dangerous. That doesn’t sit right with me. As a parent I’m so overwhelmed as to what I should do. I know for a fact certain heavy metals cause children to have foggy minds making if difficult to function. I strongly believe chemicals are related to the increased numbers in Autism.
When I had my son’s hair tested for heavy metals in early 2008 at the age of 2 and he came back with high leads of Lead and arsenic. We did a homeopathic Heavy Metal detox and it seemed to help him. Now a few years later I plan on having him checked again.
With toys being recalled left and right because of toxic levels of lead in the paint, triple the amounts of vaccines given then past generations, higher levels of chemicals in our foods, animals being tampered with to provide more meat without worry about the quality of the meat, high levels of childhood asthma, Autism and ADHD, and the fact that our children are the first generation that have a shorter life expectancy then we do. What is a parent to do?
Am I the only one concerned?
