Parents’ Worst Nightmare Becomes Reality When Doctors Discover Why Their Child Is Constantly Sick

An Australian family moved into a new home and settled in thinking life was looking good. Unfortunately, their 6-year-old son's health began taking a turn for the worst. When they found out what was making the boy sick, they were shocked.

The little boy began suffering strange symptoms and his school grades started to plummet. The family were worried about the young child and brought him in for a battery of tests. After blood tests, their young son had levels of crystal meth in his system as high as that of an adult moderate user.

The unnamed family were unaware that their home was previously used as an illegal drug lab where methamphetamines were manufactured. Apparently, the toxic chemicals in the 'cooking' process are almost impossible to get rid of and the home was contaminated.

According to reports, a growing number of houses could harbor potentially dangerous chemicals due to illegal drug labs. When the houses are sold, the owners may do some cosmetic repairs, but they can't get the dangerous by-products from their chemicals out of the walls and carpets.

Some symptoms that can arise when someone inhales those invisible fumes include difficulty sleeping, vivid dreams and respiratory problems. Buyers are urged to invest in mail order kits that test for chemicals before moving into a new home.
