Still talking about sex… and autism
In a weird coincidence, i just went from writing that last post to reading one at Total Waste’s blog… on how scientists are investigating the theory that autism, and related afflictions like Asperger’s Syndrome, are actually just an extreme of the male brain and caused by too much testosterone being produced in the womb. Since this testosterone production is genetic, it is looking very likely that autism is also genetic.
So, here’s a list of things that still don’t cause autism, for all you wingnuts, woo practitioners and snake oil salesman:
- artificial sweetners
- mercury fillings
- dairy products
