New report claims a link between cell phones and Autism Spectrum Disorder

A new report is claiming to have found a link between the rise in autism in the USA, and the rise of the use of wireless technologies, specifically mobile phones. Tamara Mariea, founder of Internal Balance, is releasing findings from more than five years of research on clients with autism, and other membrane sensitivity disorders which claims electromagnetic radiation stress is one of the potentially major root causes of the explosion of autistic cases in the past two decades.

People who visit the Internal Balance clinic are "detoxed" in an electromagnetic radiation clean environment.
In simple terms, Mariea explains to parents struggling to help their children that what her research is pointing to is with more cell phone towers being erected, more cell phones in use globally and more WiFi technology utilized, the risk for autism continues to rise. She says that Thimerosal - the mercury containing preservative in scheduled children's vaccines - has for the most part been eliminated from regularly scheduled childhood vaccines, according to public record and that the incidence of autism should be decreasing based on progress made in that area in recent years. But, it is not decreasing, she says. This is where Mariea and Dr. Carlo began to collaborate in the search to find what the larger contributor to the increase in autism is.
They say that the epidemiologic curve of autism parallels too closely with the increase usage of wireless devices to not look at it. Mariea's soon to be published paper will include her research which explores electromagnetic radiation as a cohort effect with heavy metals as a strong component of the etiology of autism.
We shall have to wait and see if the report has any credible findings when it is published.
