Abstract: Background: Autism is an enigmatic, disabling neurodevelopmental disorder that has increased in incidence almost sixty-fold since the late 1970s, but with the most dramatic increase occurring over the past decade. There is no consensus on the cause of Autism, and thus there are few reliable approaches to either preventive or therapeutic intervention. Objective: This study was conducted to assess mechanistically the role of wireless device-associated EMR in the etiology and treatment of autism. Specifically, the relationship between molecular weight-specific heavy metal clearance in children receiving detoxification intervention including energetic nutrition for autism and the length of time the children were treated in an electromagnetic radiation (EMR) free environment was evaluated. Design: Data were recorded from clinical records and arrayed according to the intervention regimen followed by each subject. The pattern of heavy metal clearance was assessed through the three distinct excretion pathways of urine, skin and feces. The first child subjected to the EMR- sensitive protocol was the sentinel indicator. Data from this subject were analyzed as a pilot to assess whether or not any clinical indications were present supporting the working hypothesis that time and molecular weight dependent heavy metal clearance was associated with symptom amelioration. Records were gathered from 20 other subjects in the clinic following the same intervention protocol in subsequent months. Results: The sentinel subject's history suggested that the efficiency of heavy metal detoxification was dramatically increased when EMR was eliminated. For the larger groups, data indicated that heavy metals were cleared in a time and molecular weight-dependent manner after EMR was eliminated from the treatment environment. Conclusions: The findings suggest a significant role of EMR in both the etiology of Autism and the efficacy of therapeutic interventions. The mechanism of EMR impact could be direct by facilitating early clinical onset of symptoms or indirect, including trapping heavy metals in cells and both accelerating the onset of symptoms caused by heavy metal toxicity as well as impeding therapeutic clearance. These data also suggest that wireless device EMR is a synergen in the etiology of autism, acting in conjunction with environmental and genetic factors, and offer a mechanistic explanation for the correlation between concurrent increases in the incidence of autism and the use of wireless technology.
