Autism

I have a girlfriend whose son was recently diagnosed with Autism.  I've also just listened to The Dark End of the Spectrum, available as a podcast from CBC's Ideas.  It was absolutely fascinating look into what the disease is, its murky history of diagnosis.

It seems that any progress in research has been largely thanks to parents getting organized.  There isn't a lot of help out there, so no wonder they have to take matters into their own hands.  

I know someone who didn't get his kids vaccinated because he was afraid it was linked.  Many people thought he was being stupid and risky, but it turns out he may have had a point

Stats say 1 out of ever 150 children will have autism.

That is Jenny McCarthy / Jim Carey's big cause. Her son has autism and she is certain it is because of vaccinations. She also helped rehabilitate her so-called unreachable child by changing his diet and giving constant attention.

Jenny McCarthy has also known to pose naked. She does it all.
