WiFi Causing Autism?

A new study finds that Wi Fi - wireless internet - may be a contributing cause to autism.

From ZD Net:

    News just in from those sensitive folks over at the Science and Public Policy Institute in Pennsylvania. Yep, as we were warned earlier this year, Tamara Mariea (a "certified clinical nutritionist"), and the redoubtable Dr George Carlo [...] have finally published their "groundbreaking scientific study" showing that Wi-Fi causes autism.

    From their press release:

    "The autistic children followed specific detoxification protocols in an environment that was mitigated with regard to sources of EMR including mobile phones and WiFi 3. Heavy metal excretions were monitored from hair, urine and feces over periods ranging from several weeks to several months. The researchers found that with protocols administered in the mitigated environment, heavy metals were cleared from the children's bodies in a pattern dependent on time and molecular weight. The heaviest metals, such as mercury and uranium, cleared last. In many of the children, the decrease in metals was concomitant with symptom amelioration.

    Tamara Mariea, said: "These findings give us very important clues to solving some of the enigmas we see in the autism literature regarding the efficacy of detoxification. And, we are extremely pleased with the results we are now seeing in these children. Our protocols are working."

    Dr. Carlo said, "These findings tie in with other studies showing adverse cell-membrane responses and disruptions of normal cell physiology. The EMR apparently causes the metals to be trapped in cells, slowing clearance and accelerating the onset of symptoms... Our data offer a reasonable mechanistic explanation for a connection between autism and wireless technology."

    Apparently this groundbreaking paper was "published this week in the peer-reviewed Australasian Journal of Clinical Environmental Medicine".

From Cruchgear:

    According to a study by Dr. George Carlo in Australasian Journal of Clinical Environmental Medicine, the signals emitted by Wi-Fi routers cause metals to be trapped in brain cells, thereby accelerating the onset of autism.

    While this news is stirring around in the metals in your brain, also understand that Dr. Kenneth Foster, another researcher stated:

    “Health agencies such as the World Health Organisation have repeatedly examined the scientific evidence and concluded that there is no convincing evidence for hazard from radiofrequency energy at levels below these international guidelines.”

Well...whether or not WiFi has any direct or indirect causational effect or relationship to autism, if John "The Sissy" Edwards isn't ushered in to the White House in 2008, no doubt can return to his trial lawyer days and sue the relatively new business of WiFi providers. And router manufacturers.

Edwards can parade some autistic child in front of a jury and claim that WiFi and router makers are the responsible parties and the only thing that will "make it right" is for the jury to award the parents millions and millions and millions and millions of dollars - all of which Edwards will take his cut. And then, he can buy a
third or fourth mansion for himself, replete with a new fleet of SUVs. Oh - and he'll still be chastising "regular Americans" for driving SUVs because...come on, I know you know the end of this sentence...because he's a Liberal hypocrite. Hmmmm, Liberal Hypocrite - sorry for the oxymoron.

Of course, the real question in this story is how long will it take before WiFi and routers being linked to autism is called, "an epidemic"?
