“Protecting the health and informed consent rights of children since 1982.”

BLFisher Note: The administration of an ever increasing number of vaccines in early childhood may be a co-factor, along with increased exposure to environmental toxins, in the dramatic increases in learning disabilities in children biologically predisposed to adverse responses to these multiple exposures. Biodiversity explains why some children will respond adversely to these exposures, which act as “triggers” for neuroimmune dysfunction, while other children will not. This makes credible scientific research by government and industry into all causes of neuroimmune dysfunction in genetically diverse populations a moral, as well as a medical, imperative.

Top Child Health Agencies Urge Testing to Protect Early Brain Development Toxins: One Out of Six Affected

PRNewswire - One out of six children are suffering from behavioral disorder according to the Learning Disabilities Association and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS-NIU). Both are calling for research testing to recognize, reduce and eliminate the environmental toxins scientifically linked to learning disabilities.

Specifically, the two groups want all regulatory agencies and Congress to institute neurotoxicity testing for food additives, pesticides and drugs to find out how these young systems are being affected, says Audrey McMahon of the Learning Disabilities Research Committee.

“We’re concerned that the pervasive damage isn’t visible until years later, when it’s reflected in a current endemic increase of learning disabilities,” says McMahon. Those affected total an estimated 12 million children (17%) in the United States under the age 18.”

There is a release into the environment of developmental and neurological toxins of about 24 billion tons a year, according to a publication, “Polluting Our Future,” that the Learning Disabilities Association released in February with the National Environmental Trust and the Physicians for Social Responsibility. But it found that U.S. industries reported only five percent to the Environmental Protection Agency.

The report said that only a few chemicals have been tested and only 3% of federal research expenditures have been spent on early child development.

The Learning Disabilities Association has invited Ken Olden, the NIEHS’ Director to speak at their Annual conference in New York, February 7-9th, about his “mission to reduce disease and dysfunction from environmental causes” through scientific research programs working tightly with communities to involve lay and professional cooperation.

“This marriage between brain sciences research with advances in environmental neurotoxicology and community participation is the only model that can guide us to a new appreciation of needs and solutions,” according to McMahon.
