No mom would be willing to see her child left out of activities or for the child to feel out of place. Every mom would want her child to develop a bond, mingle and socialize with other children. It would be heartbreaking for a mom to see her child left alone, be it in classroom, playground, or neighborhood.
You might think that such a scenario wouldn't happen as long as you teach your child all the right things, and give him/her all the attention you could possibly muster.
It would be ideal for you to not experience this at all. But, this is not something that all Moms experience. It is so because of the rising number of children being affected with ADHD.
ADHD- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
ADHD is a case where the decision-making functions of the body are affected, i.e, working memory, flexible thinking, managing emotions, self-regulation, organization, and planning.
Kids are diagnosed with ADHD when the brain anatomy is underdeveloped or it might often be hereditary as well. Kids with ADHD also have challenges in more than one area, i.e at school, at home and in friendships.
It is not an understatement to say that, ADHD scars your child for life. So, it is better to avoid even a minor chance of something like this from occurring.
Avoiding a hereditary ADHD is out of your control, but do you know what is in your control? TOXIN CONTROL!
That's right, ADHD is another ammunition in the Toxin's arsenal that victimizes kids.
Toxins are one of the leading culprits in causing ADHD to kids. Toxins might not only cause ADHD, they are also capable of worsening the ADHD symptoms.
You don't have to be exposed to chemicals in toxic waste to be affected by brain-damaging chemicals:
- Perfluorinated compounds (PFCs): They are used in preventing food and other substances from sticking to carpets, drapes, and bed sheets, etc.
- Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs): They are used as fire retardants, are found in clothing and furniture.
- Triclosan: An antibacterial agent found in soaps, toothpaste, and many other daily-care products.
- Bisphenol A (BPA): It is an epoxy resin used to line food cans and other containers. It is also used to make plastic containers, like baby bottles, and certain paper products.
- Phthalates: They are used to make rubber-based materials soft and pliable. They are found in vinyl, plastic bottles, toys, shower curtains, and raincoats.
These are but a few to mention, the researchers at HARVARD have revealed a list of toxins that lead to ADHD:
- Lead: Consistently linked to serious deficits, including low IQ. Its
effects seem to be permanent, leading to the conclusion that there is no safe level of exposure.
- Methyl-mercury: Affecting the neurological development of the fetus, exposure often comes from maternal intake of fish containing high levels of mercury.
- Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB): This family of chemicals has routinely been associated with a reduced cognitive function in infancy and childhood. It is often present in foods, particularly fish, and can be passed along in breast milk.
- Arsenic: When absorbed through drinking water, this chemical has been linked to a reduced cognitive function in schoolchildren.
The other toxins revealed were Manganese, Toluene, Fluoride, Chlorpyrifos, and DDT (pesticides), Tetrachloroethylene, The polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs).
All of these range from causing Lower IQ in kids to causing cancer(carcinogens).
