11. No they don't know, but it is not "bad parenting." I would go with environmental contaminents...

Environmental contaminents are so pervasive in America that amniotic fluid tests positive for hundreds of toxic substances. Like 600+. That's at all socioeconomic levels and all levels of education, whether their moms ate organic food or not.

These toxic substances range from rocket fuel that contaminates underground aquifers in So Cal to household pesticides and so much more.

SOURCE: Articles from the Los Angeles Times several years back. I subscribe.

Autism has always been around, just by other names. But the drastic surge in autism feels to me like these kids are the proverbial "canary in the coal mine." (For those who don't know, coal miners in some regions used to take a caged canary underground with them as an early warning device for odorless gasses that could blow up or simply kill them quickly. When the canary keeled over, that was the signal for the miners to get the hell out.)

But as for blaming mothers, which used to be the favorite culprit -- that also has been thoroughly disproven. I think our culture is poisoning our own babies.
