Over in the vax forum someone was saying there might be a link between autism and ultrasounds. I don't know any thing about this myself but you might check it out.

I had read an article that talked about gut flora and prevalence of autism but, I didn't really get far into the topic although, I would like to look into it more.
This link might be interesting to some. Search Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride and you'll find a lot of info.
The link with autism and vaxs is fuzzy. There is much debate about it even amongst those who think vaxs are linked to autism. The article I read discussed it and it was very interesting.

And when humans get u/s done they aren't usually done for several hours at a time at high levels repeatedly over the entire course of gestation.
This has been pretty much denied by Autism Speaks research
Autism speaks is definitely not a good source of information on autism. I don't even want to get in details about them because I can really get carried away.
Anyhow, I am pretty sure that the only thing my mother could have done to prevent having an autistic child is to not have sex with an autistic man. And do not tell me that it is a matter of my gut being treated the same way my dad's gut has been since his alimentation and other environmental conditions as a child were completely different than mine.
And, as far as the 1 in 67, 1 in 150, etc stats go, that can easily be explained by the changing diagnostic criteria as well as much more awareness. My father was not diagnosed as a child so he did not count in his generations stats just like most other autistic children back then.
Age of the father is closer associated with autism. New research.
