Spin-off post: Do you think the biggest factor in autism is environmental pollution? This includes the antibiotic filled, GMO food we eat, polluted air we breathe, materials-polluted water we drink, mercury filled shots given to babies, plastics we use everydy, and everything else you can think of. I believe this is the main factor since I have read an article explaining this theory but can't find the article to post here. In the article, it was explaining that during the development of fetus, environmental factors might (or may not) affect the division of cells in an abnormal way which could be the factor in autism. Assuming this is true, we do this to ourselves, all of us. Mothers of autistic kids shouldn't feel more or less guilty than any of us. By not doing enough about preventing/decreasing pollution, we should all share our part of guilt in this.
