Synergistic effects of heavy metals and pesticides in living systems

Combined exposure to heavy metals and pesticides can lead to more severe effects on human health compared to their individual effects.

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.

Sorting out the spinning of autism: heavy metals and the question of incidence

Scientists review literature and raise concerns about denial of environmental toxin link to autism.

Dysautonomia following Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis vaccine (Tdap): The first case of extreme cachexia caused by autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants (ASIA syndrome) in a human 2022

Autoimmune/inflammatory Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants (ASIA; Shoenfeld’s syndrome) comprehends a group of autoimmune conditions that flourish in genetically predisposed individuals, following an external stimulus by the so-called adjuvants. Many adjuvants were described, such as vaccines, aluminum and other metals, silicone, tattoos, among others. Here we report on a case of an 18-year-old woman who presented with extreme cachexia due to severe dysautonomia caused by the ASIA syndrome induced by the tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis vaccine (Tdap).

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.

Current knowledge on endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) from animal biology to humans, from pregnancy to adulthood: Highlights from a national Italian meeting

The preponderance of the evidence indicates that mercury exposure is causal and/or contributory to ASD.

Immunoexcitotoxicity as the central mechanism of etiopathology and treatment of autism spectrum disorders: a possible role of fluoride and aluminum

Fluoride and aluminum, alone or in combination, can produce the condition of “immunoexcitotoxicity” that leads to the pathological changes seen in autism. 

Aluminum in Childhood Vaccines Is Unsafe

Aluminum in vaccines is highly neurotoxic and exposure levels given to infants have dramatically increased.

Autism: A form of lead and mercury toxicity

Blood levels of mercury and lead are much higher in autistic children as compared to normal controls.

Mercury toxicity: Genetic susceptibility and synergistic effects

Many heavy metals increase the apparent toxicity of low levels of mercury.
