I’m no expert.
If the actual cases of Autism are increasing at the rate statistics show (Vs. rate of diagnosis), I wonder if it is an evolutionary condition of our race. Technology and morality (lack there of) have driven social interaction, empathy and passion for selef righteousness down among the human race in general and in America for certain. I have wondered if there is a correlation.
I can’t say and have no proof there is any correlation. I don’t even know much about the scientific and medical details about the failings in the brain that cause the symptoms associated with Autism. But I know several families with kids of varying degrees of the disease. If there is a cause, it must be something universal and developmental beyond simple genetics.
Our food is killing us, and a lot of that is caused by changes due to government. It’s that simple.
Not scientific at all, but something that came into my mind... What if the increase in these new issues is the result of babies and children being separated from their mothers while riding in cars? They have to ride in a back seat facing away from their parents, don’t they? (I’m not a parent, so this is just what I’ve heard.) Not having that feeling of security, especially on long road trips, might lead to social dysfunction and emotional problems similar to separation anxiety. Probably crazy, but a thought. Seems that ADD, ADHD, Autism became more prevalent as laws to “protect” kids became more intrusive.
