In the Huffington Post today David Kirby writes
US Government officials are finally getting serious about studying all potential environmental factors in autism, and I for one applaud them heartily for leaving no etiological stone unturned.
Kirby is writing about the Early Autism Risk Longitudinal Investigation or EARLI study. See their website.
See NIH Autism Study to Leave No Stone Unturned at Huffington Post.
As someone trained to be a scientist it has always been infuriating to me how little is understood about the current increase in the number of children with ASD. It looks like there is finally some momentum in the right direction. I increasingly feel there is some bad combination of genetic tendencies with environmental triggers.
