[b]A recent study comparing the number of ASD (Autistic Spectrum Disorders) as related to genetics, vaccines, health care providers, teachers and informed parents has revealed (and, I might add, confirms) the fact that ASD is increasing and that the increase is not due to the above components of awareness. I have always felt that this disorder is increasing dramatically and that it is not due to the fact that more of us are aware; the fact is "we are more aware because there are more children being born with ASD."
The medical community is moving away from calling vaccines as a causative effect and now looking at "enviromental factors" such as areas of the country we live in, foods that we eat, the water we drink, the chemicals in the world (huge numbers of chemicals are produced every year and there are no controlled studies on new chemicals. It's like, "Let's make this and see what happens." Medical science is now taking a look at the possibility that a baby's immune system is more fragile than previously thought and that there could be any number potential "weak spots" on our genetic chain. The reality is that we are subjected to more and more invasive agents than ever before; chemicals, additives, dyes, air full of junk, perservatives, processed foods, alterations if the food chain with different fertilizers, nutrients, more chemicals, and others. Think about it, we are seeing two-headed frogs in streams near chemical plants, people getting really sick for moldy buildings, and new illnesses that have never been around before.
Basically we are an organic life form with a fragile DNA structure that needs all the help it can get to become a healthy person. We need all the help we can get; we need to drop the greed of making money while making disease, disorders, and disappontments of parents world wide.
I am all for research Smile Sad however I have a great concern that a lot of research is done with money paid by interested parties. Recently we have had a number of psychiatrists in the U.S. being confronted as receiving excessive amounts of undisclosed money from big Pharma while they claim to be doing research for the good of mankind Evil or Very Mad ; it's more like doing research for the good of themselves Mad . Of course each year greed appears to be very common and increasing personality structure for a larger percentage of our world. Sad
Okay, the good is that we are gaining more attention and gaining more fighters in our fight to find answers, treatments, and cures. We also need to find the cause; we know what the effect is.

Absolutely agree ASDs are on the rise. Of course, I have a lot of concerns in this area, but would like to see 'hard' science done instead of the profit-motivated kind. Suspect One research effort I do fully support is the IAN research project. You can look them up onlne. Autistic Spectrum Disorders Continue to Increase 331208
