"Children born to mothers diagnosed and treated for the first time for thyroid dysfunction after their birth may have been exposed to abnormal levels of maternal thyroid hormone already present during the pregnancy, and this untreated condition could increase the risk of specific neurodevelopmental disorders in the child."(doi: 10.1111/1471-0528.12681)
Why is this important, and how does it tie into the other articles previously reviewed?
Mothers with hypothyroid are 4 times more likely to have a child with autism. This is a significant piece of information, given that...
- Gluten is tied to thyroid antibody production that leads to hypothyroid (Here is a good discussion on the connection between the two with references to scientific studies).
- One's sensitivity to gluten can be affected by glyphosate exposure (Dr. Seneff's article)
- Glyphosate residue is found in the environment and in foods, especially grains/dried food crops, and GMO foods.
