Failing the Smell Test

Posted on Oct 13, 2008 in Autism, Heavy Metals

From the Health Sciences Institute: I’m never surprised when powerful corporations and their government pals subvert science and suppress the truth. That story is as old as the hills. But I’m ALWAYS infuriated. Puffed-up claims In 2006, the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) was given permission to proceed with a study that would test chelation treatment in children with autism. Simple, right? The treatment is somewhat controversial (it removes heavy metals from the body), but let’s at least test it and see if this could be a breakthrough for autistic kids and their...

Birmingham HBOT is the only treatment center in Alabama offering large pressurized tanks used to immerse the brains of autistic children in oxygen, to try to reverse some of the effects of the disease.
