Reduce Preservative Intake to Lower Autism Risk
Many experts believe that today's food preservatives have links to several health problems.
Logically, if there are chemicals added to the foods a child eats which are solely for the purpose to make sure that the food does not break down quickly, it may be reasonable to think that preservatives are also keep things in the children's bodies that they shouldn't.
Just imagine all the pollution, pesticides, and chemicals in the environment today. Then think about the fact that children's digestive tract is directly exposed to all of these toxins every hour of every day.
If such toxins enter the body and then there are chemicals already in the body (thanks to the food preservatives!), made to keep things of breaking down and naturally going away, it isn't a huge stretch to think that extra toxins are stuck inside our kids.
