    for mentioning the vaccines nonsense but one of the "causes" linked to that was the use of a mercury-based preservation which is absolute bunkum.

    IF there is a link with any of these chemicals and autism, it is most likely as a triggering agent for somebody with the genetic predisposition. Actually if you look at autism as an extreme form of self-reliance in the absence of family and friends, you can perhaps extrapolate why a country founded by pioneers might well have a higher proportion of those with ASD than the countries from which they emmigrated.

    There is already a well-established link between African Americans whose families were slaves and high blood pressure. That is thought to have come about as a Darwinesque selection on the long sea voyage of those who were able to retain water in their bodies.  

    "Come to Sochi, visit the gay clubs and play with the bears" - NOT a Russian advertising slogan.
