The Risk from Air Pollution Increases

Harvard School of Public Health researchers found that women who gave birth in areas where air pollution and smog were high are twice as likely to have autistic children. There are multiple risk factors and genetic factors that cause autism. Exposure to toxic chemicals through the mom’s placenta is one of these factors. Another study from Canada documented an increase in appendicitis in areas that are polluted. A third study found that there has been an increase in the long-lasting trails of smoke that jet engines leave behind them in the sky. International weather modification programs have been linked to this increase. The program can involve spraying with aluminum, barium, strontium and other toxic metals that slowly fall to the ground after being carried by wind from their targeted areas. See Andrea Roberts of the Harvard School of Public Health, Gilaad Kaplan at the University of Calgary, and Kimberly Foster of the THRIVE Movement for more information.
