Does it really get worse by the minute?

"A just released report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows that children diagnosed with Autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) had a skyrocketing increase of 78% compared to results from a decade ago. The CDC report shows that one in 88 children are now diagnosed with the disorder. Environmental Working Group (EWG) notes that "a burgeoning body of independent scientific research suggests that one factor that may be in play is environmental exposure to neurotoxins, most notably mercury," and sees the staggering figures as a call for governmental action to minimize children's exposure to toxic chemicals, especially coal plant caused mercury exposure. “Upending the federal government’s approach to regulating toxic chemicals and putting tough emissions standards in place at power plants are two good places to start,” said Environmental Working Group President Ken Cook."

When I heard that there had been a massive increase in the number of reported cases of autism, my first thought was, "Somebody has come out with a highly profitable new 'treatment' for autism".

Remember the "depression epidemic" that ushered in the prozac decade? It was all bullshit. Suddenly there was a profit to be made by medicalizing unhappiness.
