5. I want to mention something many people don't know:

The human beings' knowledge of their own immune system is brand new.

I had a discussion with Stanford medical doctors back in the early 1980's, and they kept telling me that there was not a lot of information out there regarding "immune disorders" as there had been no massive influx of governmental monies to study the immune system. So it remained a mystery.

Then AIDS reared its nasty head. And suddenly, there was money galore for studying the immune system.

So I would say that as far as the fertility drugs being a factor in some cases of autism, it's worth exploring. We have taken significant steps regarding the immune system, but we are only in the third decade of doing so.
