A recent article published at Persephone Magazine exposed the ugly truths behind car seats. The article, entitled “I Will Not Follow the Herd” breaks down the dangers of car seats and the conspiracy behind Big Carma.
The article begins by describing just how toxic car seats are:
Seat belts are “made of synthetic fibers such as nylon, polypropylene or polyester.” Synthetic fibers. Why would I expose my daughters to synthetic material when I’m trying to keep them as natural as possible?
A great question. Why would you expose your child unnecessarily to toxic chemicals? And what about money? “With 4 million babies born in the U.S. annually, and each requiring three child restraint seats before age eight, Americans buy as many as 12 million seats a year.” explains the author. Then comes the biggest shocker of all, the link between car seats and Autism.
“Every single child I know who has autism spent time in car seats, most of them for many hours EVERY WEEK. Think about how many hours of toxic chemicals that adds up to by the time the child is 18 months old, when signs of autism first tend to show up.”
But don’t just take the authors word for it, she backs it up with solid research, explaining how as seat belt and car seat usage has gone up, so has autism.
This a great expose of the evils behind the car seat industry. As always, don’t trust what you read in the mainstream media, or those pesky scientific papers…do your own research.
