Brita Belli shines a light into one major corner of the impact of toxic chemicals on our health — the role they may play in the explosive rise in autism among American children. Her book, The Autism Puzzle, explores why autism has gone from a rare disease to now affecting 1 in 88 children. Listen to her interview with Francesca Rheannon on The Writer’s Voice here.
The Autism Puzzle is the first book to address the compelling evidence that it is the pairing of environmental exposures with genetic susceptibilities that may be impacting the brain development of children.
