Researchers may have found a link between common household chemicals and autism.
A preliminary study suggests that a type of pesticide found in everything from pet shampoos to household bug killers could cause autism--and it has moms concerned. Momlogic friend and pediatrician Dr. Cara Natterson weighs in:
"Physicians and scientists alike are eager to identify causes or triggers for autism. We know that the disease results from a combination of factors, among them genetics and environmental triggers. The correlation between pyrethrin exposure and autism is extremely interesting and should certainly be followed-up with other studies. This is one example of a potentially huge category of chemical exposures that may be linked to autism."
What do you think about this theory?
