Abstract: Pediatrician Toril Jelter, MD describes her two-week electromagnetic radiation (EMR)-lowering protocol, tried by twelve families with a child with autism. In Dr. Jelter’s pilot study, ten of the twelve children had significantly improved sleep, digestion, behavior, learning, language use or attention span. Dr. Andrew Goldsworthy, a biologist, explains why exposure to radio-frequency fields emitted by wireless technologies might contribute to medical problems found in children with autism. Peter Sullivan, a software designer whose two sons had autistic behaviors as toddlers, shares his family’s experience in reducing their EMR exposure. Cindy Sage, MA, co-editor of the BioInitiative Reports and co-author (with Harvard pediatric neurologist Martha Herbert, MD) of two peer-reviewed papers in Pathophysiology exploring the plausible link between autism and EMR exposure, offers her advice to parents.
