    Not to fret, most people are diagnosable with some mild form of a condition found in the DSMMD if examinined closely enough and as you've probably found, in addition to any drawbacks there's generally an attendant compensation conferred with it. Sociopathy for instance has a statistically high representation rate in successful traders- they tend not to be influenced by fear to the degree most people are. I've personally been told that I'm an idiot savant without the savant part. :lol:

    Genetic mutation link to autism...
    :confused:
    Scientists Discover Genetic Mutations Linked to Autism
    April 06, 2012 - Three new studies have uncovered extremely rare genetic mutations that shed new light on the potential environmental and biological roots of autism, a brain disorder that causes social and developmental delays in children, beginning at a young age. Scientists say the DNA glitches found in a small subset of autistic children were not inherited by them, but occurred spontaneously at their conception, increasing their risk for developing the disorder.

    If they can't do it any other way the left is sure to play the "for the children" card. Now the government alleges all sort of bad habits that adults enjoy to be a cause of autism without offering a shread of evidence. You can bet your ass-ets that Obama-care is on their minds. Look at the hard core anti-smoking campaign going on. If they can use a guilt trip to make people more health conscious it might reduce the sky rocketing costs of nationalized health care.
