Autism Speaks Has An Agenda and It is Not About Preventing Autism

"The question that needs to be answered at this point is: What is really happening as the parent ages?" Andy Shih, Chief Scientific Officer of Autism Speaks, former Industry Consultant. What Industry was Andy Shih a consultant for? Prior to joining NAAR, Andy had served as an industry consultant.

Do the any of the directors or officers of Autism Speak care about the answer to this question? No way.

Autism does not need biomedical research it needs to be prevented. That can be done through earlier fathering of babies, cryopreserving semen in cryobanks in ones mid 20s and through understanding the relationship of autoimmune disorders in the family to the risk of having autistic children.

Familial autism is probably partly an X-linked disorder. Also some autism is thought to be autosomal recessive. There is information on the heterogenicity of autism in some of the prior postings.

Hi -- thanks for your comment on my blog. I appreciate it.

This is the first I've heard about your theory of the father's age affecting autism.

The father of my autistic nephews was only 25 and 26 when my nephews were born though. But the points you propose are interesting.
