Well worth examining: we have an astounding increase in autism and there is some causative factor - and this could be one of the keys.
I don't know. Studies show increased autism in babies born to older parents, in babies born to parents who are closely related and a whole bunch of other things. Also, you need to take into account the way autism is defined currently. Quite honestly, a lot of extremely bright young men I knew growing up and when my children were growing up would now be defined as somewhere on the autistic scale. It seems we want very badly to stick everyone into some little box. Not all minds are created the same. Not all minds work the same. I am not saying that autism does not exist, I am just saying that some of the things defined as autism are on the outer edges or normal not in the box of abnormal. These differences in how the mind work, have added great benefit to our society.
All I meant is these two’s credentials are more than suspect....spend your research on non-agenda driven research.
