The Age of Autism,
Mercury, Medicine and a Manmade Epidemic
No person concerned with toxic chemicals or the health of our children should miss this event! Authors Olmsted and Blaxill unveil how mankind has unwittingly poisoned itself with mercury for half a millennium. They make a compelling case that the latest tragedy is the autism epidemic. What they found in 7 of the 11 original cases of autism will transform the autism environmental debate. Their discoveries and connections, taken together, cannot be ignored. If you are a health care provider, an educator, a relative or a friend of someone with autism, you owe it to yourself to understand this issue. The event is free and sponsored by True Health Medical Center and Talk About Curing Autism (TACA) Chicago.
