Hey, it didn't let me watch the film. What were they saying about GMO's role in autism? Just curious.

There has recently begun to be a focus on the genetic modification of food interfering with brain development and genes in the child since the genes in GMO food are unstable and can invade other genes in the body. It has been the world's largest human experiment. Our children have been the test subjects for the last 10 years. You can probably get the film at the local library as well. This film opened my eyes on so many levels.

As a parent of an Autistic child, the costs of care and medications for other mental health disorders common in Autistic kids is enormous. My child is over ten and she got hers threw regular old inheritance. Even very mild cases of Autism reduce your capacity to hold a job, interact socially and in many cases be well rounded enough to engage successfully in higher forms of education. An above average child may not be able to do algebra or read fast enough all depending on how they are impacted. Autistic kids can be very physically active and overly trusting and require constant diligent supervision. They challenge peoples capacity to parent them. More severe cases are particularly heartbreaking when the child regresses to the point they can't help care for themselves after having a higher degree of functioning. The super increase in cases is largely due to better diagnoses. Children that are being diagnosed today would either have been pushed threw mainstream school or would have been addressed by special education under a different label. More people seek treatment for their children rather than try to pass them off as normal these days. They really don't need to do things even suspected of bringing about autism. Aside from the challenges these kids face, the cost to the country would be enormous on every level.
