  The symptoms of Autism and the symptoms of Mercury Poisoning are the same!!!



  • Officially, the academy of pediatrics states that there is no known cause or cure for Autism (our son is proof that this statement is not 100% correct).

  • Prior to the 1960's the treatment recommended was institutionalization.

  • After the 1960's and up until the past decade the only other recommended treatment was behavior modification or ABA therapy.

  • Only recently, because of the work deligent parents, researchers and doctors (many of them parents or grandparents of children with ASD themselves) the correlation between Autism and Mercury Poisoning has been made.  Children are now being successfully treated bio-medically.
