The incidence of autism is climbing to unimaginable levels and almost no one has a clue why this is happening!
In 1980 the incidence of autism was one in 100,000 and today the incidence is 1 in 50! So what’s up with that Doc?
Dr. Joe Mercola one of my medical physician hero’s stated that…”If you consider the full range of neurological disorders that could fall under the wider umbrella of "Autism Spectrum Disorder," the incidence may be as high as one in 10!”
Dr. Temple Grandin who wrote the book called…’The Autistic Brain: Thinking Across the Spectrum,’ takes the position that in part, we have to view autism back when it was first became recognized. Grandin makes the point that brain anomalies in the past may have been might be confused with common symptoms and people with a mild autism conditions were looked at as a little strange but today their exists far better ways to diagnose autism from mild to severe conditions.

Other contributing causes include dietary factors including food sensitivities, vitamin D deficiency and electromagnetic radiation.
