Studies Link Heavy Metals to the Explosion of Neurodevelopmental Disorders and Declining IQ in American Children

A “silent pandemic of neurodevelopmental toxicity” is disabling a generation of children around the world. This is the verdict of neurology experts Philippe Grandjean and Philip Landrigan in a 2014 report in Lancet Neurology. The staggering tsunami of developmental disabilities now affects at least one in six children in the U.S. and millions more worldwide.

Metals Debris Found in Vaccine Supply

A landmark new study has found metal debris and biological contamination in every human vaccine tested. The study should have profound and immediate impact on public health policies and vaccine industry procedures around the globe.

Alternatively spliced methionine synthase in SH-SY5Y neuroblastoma cells: Cobalamin and GSH dependence and inhibitory effects of neurotoxic metals and thimerosal

Thimerosal reduces people’s ability to make all-important vitamin B12 compounds that help the body detoxify and control inflammation—and B12 deficiencies and severely impaired detoxification are hallmarks of autism.

Assessment of hair aluminum, lead, and mercury in a sample of autistic Egyptian children: Environmental risk factors of heavy metals in autism

Autistic children accumulate metals at a much higher level than children who do not have a diagnosis of autism.

Mercury Toxicity: Highly Toxic, Cumulative and Still in Vaccines

A new report in the Journal of Environmental and Public Health — “Sources and Toxicity of Mercury in the San Francisco Bay Area, Spanning California and Beyond” — evaluates published scientific literature on the environmental occurrence and biomagnification of mercury with an emphasis on the San Francisco Bay Area in California.

The Injection Fraud – It’s Not a Vaccine

If I understand the history of case law, vaccines, in legal terms, are medicine. Intentional heavy metal poisoning is not medicine. Injectible surveillance components are not medicine. Injectible credit cards are not medicine. An injectible brain-machine interface is not a medicine. Legal and financial immunity for insurance companies does not create human immunity from disease. Why are we calling these formulations “vaccines”?

Is Pharma Censoring the Science at One Major University by Choking the Money Channel?

Do conflicts of interest between academic research institutions and the pharmaceutical industry hamper the ability to conduct genuine scientific inquiry into topics deemed off-limits by vaccine makers.

Special Solari Report: Vaccine Mandates with Mary Holland, J.D,

CHD’s Vice Chair and General Counsel Mary Holland recently joined The Solari Report’s C. Austin Fitts to do a special report to discuss vaccine and related mandates and what we need to do to prevent them.

Communication Interrupted: Why Does One in Twelve U.S. Children Have a Communication Disorder?

A growing subset of American children suffers from speech delays or other language difficulties that are frequently layered on top of other childhood-onset disorders such as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) which are suspected of having environmental causes.

ADHD: Alarms Raised; Risks Ignored

While acknowledging that genetics likely play a role, few dispute that environmental factors such as lead and other heavy metals, fluoride, pesticides and other endocrine-disrupting chemicals have a lot to do with the consistent upward trend of ADHD diagnoses.

Dynamical properties of elemental metabolism distinguish attention deficit hyperactivity disorder from autism spectrum disorder

Metabolism of metals and toxins may play a role in ADHD and autism development, evidence may be detectable.

Is Arthritis in Childhood Becoming the “New Normal”—Are Vaccines to Blame?

For people who think of arthritis as a disease of the elderly, learning that children also suffer from arthritic conditions may come as a shock. Across age groups, various forms of arthritis are a growing public health problem in the United States. New cases of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and other types of autoimmune arthritis in young Americans are two to three times higher than in Canada, with cases occurring within the wider context of proliferating pediatric autoimmune disorders.

Lead is a dense toxic heavy metal found in pipes, batteries, coal ash, paint products, and gasoline. Its neurotoxicity was recognized in the late 19th century, as it accumulates in soft tissues and bones in humans, damaging the nervous system and interfering with enzyme function. Even though lead was supposed to fazed out, it is still found in the air, soil, and water, and traces of lead continue to be found in industrial and construction products. Populations are still affected by environmental exposure. Lead is especially toxic to children, as evidenced in the following studies and articles below, contributing to gastrointestinal problems, psychological issues, acute encephalopathy, and lower IQ, as well as contributing to neurological disorders such as autism, ADHD, and behavioral problems.


Aluminum is one of the most abundant metals in the Earth’s crust – a chemical element now recognized as a neurotoxin, especially when the human body reaches its burden, though, according to one of the foremost experts on aluminum, Bioinorganic Chemistry professor Dr. Christopher Exley, said in the Environmental Science Processes & Impacts Journal that, […]
