"It is very possible that PATERNAL AGE is the major predictor of(non-familial) autism." Harry Fisch, M.D., author "The Male Biological Clock". Sperm DNA mutates and autism, schizophrenia bipolar etc. results. What is the connection with autoimmune disorders? Having Type 1 diabetes, SLE,etc. in the family, also if mother had older father.

This Old Sperm

This Old Sperm
Science comes down on the side of the cougar.
By Emily Nussbaum
Published Mar 15, 2009
Earlier this month, the journal PLoS Medicine analyzed data from a study of over 50,000 pregnant women and came to a simple but stunning conclusion: Older fathers have dumber kids. The more geriatric the dad, the dimmer the progeny, on measures including “thinking and reasoning, concentration, memory, understanding, speaking, and reading.” (Luckily, geezer offspring had no problems with motor skills, making them ideal for wheeling around their elderly dads.)
It was another unsettling addition to the growing pile of evidence that men have their own biological clocks, with older fathers also producing higher rates of schizophrenia and autism. But what really caught my eye was the secondary finding, which was that older mothers were associated with smarter children. I quickly did the calculations and was pleased with my findings. The most intelligent children, I deduced, must be the outcome of 45-year-old career women inseminated by their 21-year-old personal trainers....

Dear Concerned Heart.

As I see no other way to contact you, I am using this mode of communication.

Per your posting about Autism, please visit and read about: 1) the fact that all living creatures have much needed biological (circadian) clocks; 2) modern methods of time-keeping and modern living hygiene increasingly obscure our biological clocks from the photic cues (dawn/sunrise and dusk sunset) that are vitally needed for daily resyncing; and 3) recent medical research shows that many illnesses and diseases --including autism -- are associated with malfunctioning biological clocks. Could it be that for at least some extra sensitive and susceptible toddlers, modern "sleep hygiene" with its "same time of night go to sleep" regimen can push at least some of these autism-prone children over the threshold?

Looking forward to hearing from you, and warmest regards,
