Autism, traffic, and unstudied vaccine components

An astounding one out of every 88 American children (and one in 54 boys) now has autism - a 78 percent increase in just the last decade - according to the latest CDC estimate just released last month. By contrast, that figure stood at less than five per 10,000 children in 1980. In the UK, the prevalence rate has reached one out of every 64 children. This sharp rise over the past couple decades is all the more terrifying since so much about its causes remains shrouded in mystery. Even if some share of the increase might be attributable to changing diagnostic criteria, we are still dealing with an alarming epidemic. Only the full force of science - properly deployed and free from ideological shackles - can meet the pressing need for answers to this devastating condition.
