Could the increase in wireless technology be the environmental and cellular toxicity factor for the prevalence of autism in modern nations?

The idea is not my own but hoping to promote awareness for further discussion and inquiry. The references below are easily searchable.

A scientific study published in the peer-reviewed Australasian Journal of Clinical Environmental Medicine (acnem.org) warns that radio waves from cell phones may be responsible for accelerating the rise in autism among the world's children.

Dr. George Louis Carlo, co-author of the study, developed a theory that low frequency cell phone signals are harmful to cell function causing the inability to move heavy metals and toxins outside cells.

Here is a collection of other evidence on such question http://www.dailykos.com/story/2012/04/11/1082549/-Autism-Cell-Towers-Electromagnetic-Radiation-Connection-Possibility# It presents a government study of radio waves affecting the DNA and charts showing a correlation between the increase in autism and cell phone usage.

As you may know, the media personalities, Dr. Mercola and Dr. Oz have also warned us of the possible EMR effect on children's neurological development. Dr. Oz even suggested to keep cell phones away from younger children based on some studies he saw.

There are studies that point to the possibility that cell phone signals also affect the bees neurological system and navigation.

  • Nov 18 2012: I'll defer to Dr. Oz. Seriously doesn't anyone buy into moderation anymore?

      Nov 19 2012: his argument was as a precaution for parents to avoid having a cell phone on when carrying their babies as children's neurological system is developing at younger age and thus more susceptible to environmental factors than ours. The new cell phone radio waves are now able to cross through concrete and skull.
