Is it just too scary for the general public to think that Autism is genetic and not a disease/disorder/abnormality?
My youngest (autistic) son has never taken any type of antibiotic or any kind of meds when he was younger. At age 25, he needed an antibiotic, but only took a couple of doses and that's all. Autism is in my family (big time). When we found out about autism, we just said, "Oh, so that's what it's called" and it goes so far back in my family that I just can't see it being "caused" by something ingested, or in the air and it's definately not a disorder!
The autistic traits that my sons father has were exactly the traits that attracted me to him in the first place. So, if our numbers are growing, it is because we are not as anti-social as they think, at least, not with each other :wink:
