Increased diagnoses of Autism and Asperger's in children environmental, dietary or genetic?


Is the 1000% increase in Autism and Asperger's Syndrome over 30 years ago in our diet? Is it in our environment? Or is just simply in our genes?

    You are very right. Autism is not a mistake. Some autistic people are able recall vast amounts of information, some can perform complex mathematics in an instant, to name a few. Seeing their abilities, perhaps THEY are the next step in our evolution?

    My oldest son also has Aspergers. When the possibility was mentioned by his doctors I was appalled and honestly I fought it for almost a year! After reading more about it, I became much more informed and the pieces started to fit together.

    my recommendations are a good probiotic, as intestinal dysbiosis effects everything from recall to intestinal distubances.
