Our Silent Epidemic
- Why do children’s fingers become permanently bent and twisted from video games, computers, and coloring?
- Why do adults develop chronic back-shoulder-neck-pain, carpal tunnel, arthritic fingers, autism from
"stiff suspensions" shaking the embryo and "high effort steering" systems causing fingers to curve and twist?

many forms of arthritis and why it becomes crippling, which is contained here in our site, and our free download able book "Our Silent Epidemic", Module 6

Adult Muscle and Skeletal Injuries and Chronic Pain from The High Resistant Power Assist
Steering and Stiff Suspensions on Todays Vehicle's
Cause of Autism - Alzheimer's  Module 3 of 6  Cause of Autism - Alzheimer's  

A major factor in causing autism is the physical shaking of the uterus/embryo due to the stiff suspensions on todays vehicles.
The delicate brain and nerve tissues of the unborn (embryo) are injured from the physical shock loads caused by todays stiff suspensions and hard seat vehicles!!
The 17,400 shock loads (17,400 in 20 minutes, 8 million in 9 months) physically tear the soft tissue in nerves, cause premature birth,
miscarriages, brain function disorders, and physical deformities.  
Embryos and new-born must be isolated from vibrations and shock loading forces.
Do not allow your baby to ride in a baby seat unless it isolates the baby from the bouncing/shaking from stiff suspensions.
Shock load impacts to a baby in the back seat is 5 to 10 times greater than the front seat.

CHILDREN'S WARNING:  Your children's bones are too soft for some
repetitive motion forces that cause bone stresses which result in
per-arthritic curved fingers and twisted knuckles. Avoid Video Gaming
Equipment, toys too heavy for effortless two finger use, avoid toys with
button pushing/slapping.   
Do not purchase a vehicle unless you can turn the steering wheel with ONE FINGER at any speed
Vertebrae shifting out of position, compressed disc's, pinched nerves, chronic pain/burning between shoulder
blades, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel, everyone knows someone with lower back pain, lower back pain is
common with young and elderly today from physical jobs to office jobs.
Typical Health Problems Caused by Resistant Steering: sciatic pain, headaches, carpal tunnel, occasional or chronic pain in back (up/low), neck, shoulder, hips,
knees, fingers, numbness in face, jaw, neck, chronic fatigue, mood swings, depression, sleeplessness..... more.

AUTISM-The embryo is extremely delicate. It's composed of weak developing tissues that can tear and stretch. The brain is a large ball of complex developing microscopic
nerves. Dr. C. Walsh states, “autism happens in the uterus.” Dr. Timothy Roberts-Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia; “it is a problem with brain conductivity."

Some processes we do, result in repetitive shock loads going through the embryo. The most popular and most damaging unrecognized source of repetitive shock loading is
the stiff suspension on todays vehicles.  
A 30 minute trip results in 26,100 compression shock loads traveling through the embryo? WHY? Because, over the past 24 years
vehicle suspensions, and seating have gotten stiffer & stiffer - like race cars now.
They used ride smooth like floating in about of calm waters. Today, you feel every bump,
crack in the road; you bounce down the road now. Next time you ride in a vehicle pay attention to how hard those bumps really are.

Nicholas Negroponte and his "One Laptop Per Child"  
Program (OLPC) Causes Children's to Develop Arthritic Fingers
The "One Laptop Per Child" program is delivering Laptop computers to young children and the children are
developing arthritic fingers from using the computers due to the fact that young children have soft bones, which
easily become bent with twisted from the repetitive pushing motions. Every time a child pushes on a touch screen,
keyboard, or mouse, they exert a mini force that exceeds the strength of the bone mass. Thus bone mass is pushed
through its elastic state into its plastic state..resulting in mass changing in the direction of the force. In this case
fingers bending backwards or twisting sideways.  The various deformities are shown in Module 1 of this site. The
first sign of hand functional loss is frustration due to difficulty handling small items

September 2013 - Mercedes-Benz announced the introduction of a new electronic soft-riding-vehicle-suspension-system that eliminates the
present stiff/shock loading ride
. Soft suspensions will prevent damaging shock loads traveling through the human body, clashing our joints, and
soft tissue which our research attributes to the cause of autism,  degenerative disc disease, fibromyalgia, hip replacement surgeries, depression,
mood swings and many issues caused by shaking the human body over seven millions times in nine months.

Hand strength diminishes, inability to carry weight between the thumb and index finger. Physical hand
loss due to inability to perform physical task without pain developing. Enlarged arthritic knuckles that  
are painful with burning and aching. Index fingers and middle fingers curved toward ring finger with tips
also twisted toward ring finger. Ring fingers bent towards middle and index fingers.  Small finger
bending outward from hand. Tips of thumbs angled outward from hand.

What happens if you shake a baby's head 200+ times a minute, 6,000 in 30 minutes?  You injure the nerve cluster at the base if the brain where the spinal cord
connects.  The physical compression and jerking forces traumatize the brain. Even after the baby is born we strap the baby into a hard baby, on a hard injection
molded backseat and the baby then experiences 5 to 10 times stronger head shanking forces because the back of the vehicle bounces much higher due to light
weight .... and then we wonder why our children have autism 1 in 50 now (CDC 3-21-13).  
What happens if you shake an adults head 200+ times a minute, 6,000 in 30 minutes? He gets headaches, depression, mood swings, vision problems, etc.  
Long term he develops Alzheimer's.  Check the history of anyone with Alzheimer's ... you'll see the common denominator is lots of time behind the wheel.  If the
Alzheimer's doesn't get them, then lung disease usually does because of all the vehicle exhaust pollution.

Warning to Parents. Do not allow your children to perform coloring until at least 5-years-old and then with soft/smashed tip markers. No computers or video gaming until their
finger bones are calcified and strong enough to avoid curvatures and twisted knuckle deformities.
The Honorable Terry Brown, House of Representatives warning to Huron
and Tuscola County Schools.
"There is emerging research that indicates that the repetitive motion,
dynamic forces used by children in video gaming and other similar activities
may lead to physical trauma to children's developing joints and bones."
Your Child's School and Day Care Center is causing children to develop childhood arthritis.  Bent and twisted fingers like adults injuries from driving
because of repetitive white-knuckle video gaming, repetitively pressing keyboard and mouse buttons, and destructive forces generated in
during lengthly time coloring with wax crayons (see Section 3, pages 3-41 to 3-51, and 3-65 of our free downloadable book in Section 6).
