Increasing Rate of Mental Health Disorder in Youth & children(Best psychiatrist in Bhopal)
What’s Causing the Rise in Mental Health Disorders in Children and Teens?
The greater part of autism cases do appear to result from the activation or “expression” of a number of different genes, along with multiple epigenetic and environmental factors that relate to create the traits of autism. But science is more and more showing us just how malleable our genes are—they continuously alter their expression in response to their environment, meaning, your body and everything you put into and onto it. Furthermore, there’s no shortage of evidence that toxins of different sorts can wreak havoc with brain function, which can lead to everything from depression to anxiety, learning disorders and more serious mental illnesses.
Add to this the more recent findings that your gut is profoundly influential for brain health, and a picture of toxic overload combined with inadequate nutrition comes into clear view. Some of the contributing factors, I believe, include the following broad categories:
Toxic exposures: (Including agricultural chemicals; air and water pollutants; chemicals in individual care and household products; excessive vaccinations; heavy metals; prescription drugs, and more)
Heavy metal exposures are also general and can wreak havoc with your brain function. It is already an established fact that exposure to mercury can reason immune, sensory, neurological, motor, and behavioral dysfunctions — all like to traits defining, or associated with autism.
Mercury pollution is widespread from the burning of fossil fuels, but the use of thimerosal-containing vaccines and dental amalgams—both of which contain mercury—also cannot be overlooked as major sources of individual exposure to this neurotoxin.
Mental Illness in the Justice System
Young people who don’t get treatment for mental illness are at higher possibility for incarceration as adults—and most mental illness in this population is not identified until people are incarcerated. Our jails are serving as de facto hospitals now.
