Study Says DNA Flaw May Raise Autism Risk - New York Times
Interesting...this is one of the research consortiums that has access to our family's DNA, so it always makes me wonder when they find something! It's exciting to see so much research going on in so many different directions.

Mentioned here Thimerosal Exposure Declines, Autism Rates Increase, and a Note About Myself
"From my own observation: Moms of autistic kids are party goers or ex-party goers. Leaves me to think that birth control or drugs is the cause."
It's actually a close second to the theory that autistic kids are sent here by aliens to be emissaries to the rest of the world (kind of difficult if they're non-verbal I'd say), but the "party-going mom" one is pretty classic too.
And I knew that the anti-vaccine people weren't going to take the new study lying down- so far my favourite theory that they've come up with is that the large amount of immigrants coming from thimerosal using countries account for the increase. Sometimes you just have to laugh so that you don't scream.
