Anxiety cleansing fluids can cause autism risk for unborn babies after new study suggests they can be absorbed through the skin and lungs of a mother

  • Women who are exposed to solvents at work run a greater risk of having an autistic child
  • Solvents are often used in cleaning agents and by people in the construction industry
  • Autism, which affects around 500,000 people in the UK, includes a series of behavioral disorders that reduce the ability to connect with others

Women who are exposed to solvents at work run a greater risk of having a child with autism, research suggests.

Solvents are often used in cleaning fluids, such as carpet cleaners, and in the construction industry. A study suggests that they can be absorbed through the skin and lungs of a mother, which subsequently influences the development of a baby.

& # 39; These results are consistent with previous reports that have identified solvents as a potential risk factor for autism spectrum disorders & # 39 ;, wrote the US team.

Autism, which affects around 500,000 people in the UK, includes a series of behavioral disorders that diminish the ability to connect with others. It is believed that it occurs when a combination of genetic and environmental factors affect the developing brain.

The journal Occupational & Environmental Medicine reported that researchers from the University of California, Davis, assessed the task history of parents of 537 children diagnosed with autism, along with those of 414 children without neurological problems.

They found that mothers of autistic children were 50 percent more likely to be exposed to solvents at work than mothers of non-autistic children.

Professor Alastair Hay of the University of Leeds, however, said: & # 39; Larger studies, looking at specific solvents, are needed because solvents exert their toxic effects in many different ways. & # 39;
