Autism is more common among boys...
Protein found in brain cells may be key to autism
20 March 2011 - Scientists have shown how a single protein may trigger autistic spectrum disorders by stopping effective communication between brain cells.
Because the vaccination causation didn't pan out...
There's also talk about low rates of Autism among the Amish but I found this interesting bit that supports the OP.
Adventures in Autism: Autism Rate - US 1:166, Amish 1:15,000
Some good friends of ours who live in L.A. (Toxic capitol of the world maybe?) have two children who are autistic. The father is a type II diabetic but I don't know if that has any bearing on their children's autism.
I've been reading about autism and diet and apparently some people have been seeing improvements by restricting gluten in their kids diets.
what about the study that says the closer the kids are in birth...the higher the autism rate?
They compared their autism rates to the length of time between the birth of
The first child and the conception of the second child.
The result: If a child was conceived *less* than twelve months after the birth of his or her older sibling-- that child was more than three times more likely to be diagnosed with Autism than a child conceived more than three years after the birth of the first child.
And children conceived between one and two years after the birth of their older siblings-- were at almost double the risk of Autism.
Time between pregnancies could be linked to Autism
Exactly what I thought when I read the thread title.
Utah air pollution makin' people sick...
Sickening fog settles over Salt Lake City area
Jan 23,`13 -- A group of Utah doctors is declaring a health emergency over the Salt Lake City area's lingering air pollution problem.
What a bunch of total crap...........I work in the field for 27 years. Nobody knows dick about what causes autism. There are dozens of theories, all hail mary passes.
Oh......... and the increase in autism stats is also a gigantic lie.
"Study" is not something that interests Republicans.
More and more, every day, autism is being proved to be faked for most of the afflicted. If we stopped paying people to be autistic, we would have less of it.
