Autism prevalence higher than many thought


The US CDC just released a new report on the prevalence of autism:

March 20, 2013

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released new figures for autism prevalence in the United States. They now give a prevalence of 1 in 50, but this story, like most autism-related stories, goes deeper than the numbers.

First, this prevalence estimate doesn’t focus only on 8-year-olds, the population used for deriving the 1 in 88 number reported in 2012. Instead, it encompasses the number of diagnosed autistic people walking around in 2011 and 2012 who were ages 6 to 17…From 2007 to 2013, parent-reported autism prevalence increased significantly in all age groups in the 6-17 range and increased for boys from 1.8% to 3.23%. Girls also showed an increase, but not as dramatic, from 0.49% to 0.70%. Autism among children ages 14 to 17 was up more than 1%, compared to children in the youngest, 6 to 9 age group (0.5%).

Immunizations, foods, increased genetic predisposition, and toxins have been speculated as being possible cause for this rise. Because of the neurological problems associated with autism, I have long felt that it is likely caused by a combination of environmental toxins with genetic predisposition. A study last November seemed to somewhat confirm this (see Air Pollution More Than Doubles Autism Risk).

The widespread and growing use of genetically modified (GMO) “foods,” pesticides, herbicides, synthetic vitamins, combined with air and other environmental pollution, including exposure to huge amounts of plastics, etc. puts a toxic load on the human body that seems to increase the risk for autism.

There were blessings and cursings promised to the descendants of Israel.  Notice one curse:

18 Cursed shall be the fruit of your body (Deuteronomy 28:18).

And this may be one of the reasons that there seem to be so many with autism.   The sins of nation result in increased pollution and affect pretty much everybody.

One of the reasons that Jesus is returning is to “destroy those who destroy the earth” (Revelation 11:18).

20 He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.” Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus! (Revelation 22:20)
