I remember when I went through infertility the news said the same thing about obesity caused infertility. I was on my 3rd surgery for infertility and at 122 pounds and 5'2 jokingly said I don't feel obese.

These type of studies are very hurtful and honestly not true. I've seen parents of every body type as a Special Education Teacher.

I do remember hearing that there was a half missing chromosome linked to a higher chance of autism. Even with that it wasn't 100%. But if a sibling had it already and they were missing that part of the chromosome they had a very high chance of autism.

And then we have the view from the eye of G-d where we know there was no sickness before the fall, neither will there be in eternity, and it is always the will of the Father we be well. whole. restored, and in relationship with every thought, word, and deed. How do we access His healing.

Well, I can't get the video to play right now, but I'm taking a guess that it's main focus is that modern day shots are a/the cause of autism.

If these 2 theories held any truth to them, then how does one explain why a child can be born to a mother who is lean, healthy, very "normal" uncomplicated pregnancy , who (due to fear of this very topic) NEVER vaccinates the child and yet the child STILL is autistic????

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
Psalm 139:14

That would lead me back to the spiritual explanation.

What a terrible disease. No matter what the cause is, I totally agree that God doesn't want our kids to have autism. I actually know a woman whose two sons were both autistic, and she saw them supernaturally healed! It's a really encouraging story. Her name is Deborah, and there's a video of her testimony on Andrew Wommack's website: https://l.awmi.net/3aq8fOx

All that to say, I think it's encouraging to remember that even if doctors and scientists can't agree on what causes it, God's love and His power to heal are still greater!

when both hub and I were growing-up, NO ONE was EVER diagnosed with today's 'maladies'!!!
no gray-areas, just like in the Bible, just this simple,
(Christ healed the sick and delivered them from demons, and then went and preached The Kingdom of God')...

TV as well is harmful for little brains, used to be ok, the newer programming with the fast images is harmful.

TV is harmful its been proven, I dont know why some parents watch so much of it, expose their children to ads, violence etc.

a lot of the air we breathe, the water we drink and the foods we consume is now contaminated with chemicals. most of the pesticides and herbicides used now are just left over bioweapons from world war 2. what they couldnt use to kill the jews just got used to kill plants and animals instead.

Another factor is electromagnetic radiation. babies are now being exposed to so much and its just been accumulating who knows what it does to young brains still developing.

Fear, the abundance of the enemy tempting people to fear, Dr. Leaf explains the science behind how the fear of being affected by illness has been shown to increase the rate of falling prey to it.
We know our G-d will protect us as He tells us in Mark how some will drink poison and it will not harm them, and Dr. Leaf recognizes this, going on to explain how it is not given to us to pray a Twinkie into a Kale Chip! ha! Yes, it looks like we fouled our nest, we have this time for a global reset.
blessings in Jesus name.
