Curras said managing the kids requires a constant team effort from her, her husband and her mom, who lives with the family.

Curras pointed out her children are socially and developmentally delayed. The bad days are rough.

"Two-hour-long tantrums," she said. "But it's beyond tantrum, it's like they're hysterical. Something didn't go the way they thought it should go. They get kind of fixated."  . . .

San Diego State psychologist Ralph-Axel Müller said while there's lots of research about children with autism, there's little about how the disorder affects adults.

"After the age of maybe 40 years or so, we don't know anything about what happens in people with autism, what happens in their brains, and how their thinking abilities might change," he said.

Müller has been awarded a $3.5 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to study autism in adults. . . .

An estimated 500,000 children with autism will become adults over the next decade. . . .

Researchers say there's no indication that people with autism have a shorter lifespan. The new SDSU study hopes to answer whether some of them are at risk for greater neurological decline as they get older.  

We continue to pretend autism is just a medical curiosity we have all the time in the world to figure out.  The mystery continues.  Not only can't experts figure out the cause, cure or prevention for autism, they're still trying to find adults.

I posted this comment.:

Something is clearly missing in this story. Why don't we know what happens to autistic adults? The one in 68 rate for autism currently is based on studies of eight year olds, not eighty year olds. Why is that? No one has ever been able to find a comparable rate among adults, especially adults with severe autism whose symptoms are easily recognized. Maybe that should be the first study tackled by the SDSU. Find the one in every 68 adults out there with autism. Autism is rampant in our schools but not in middle aged or elderly populations.

For years, every time the the autism rate took another gigantic increase, officials were right there telling us that they weren't sure if THIS INCREASE meant more CHILDREN had autism. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has been happy to leave autism's cause one big mystery. What is undeniable is the fact that autism overwhelmingly affects CHILDREN. Stories about autism are constantly in the news, but they're about CHILDREN WITH AUTISM. The real questions we'll all be facing as a half a million CHILDREN WITH AUTISM reach adulthood in the next ten years is how will we care for them and how will we pay for them.

All the health officials who claim that the huge explosion in autism is the result of "better diagnosing" on the part of doctors need to explain why it's never been applied to adults.


The medical study was published this month in The Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine.

People who are chemically intolerant often have serious reactions to common chemicals and some become too sick carry out routine functions. Chemical intolerance affects about 10 percent to 30 percent of the U.S. population. Developmental disorders such as autism and attention-deficit disorder affect one in six children in the United States. . . .

"We are most concerned about how vulnerable the children with ADHD and autism were to environmental exposures," said the primary author, Lynne P. Heilbrun, M.P.H., autism research coordinator for the Department of Family and Community Medicine at the Health Science Center. "Mothers reported that their children were significantly more sensitive to everyday exposures such as engine exhaust, gasoline, smoke, fragrances and cleaners than their neurotypical peers." The children reportedly also were more sensitive to adverse effects from infections, medications, chemicals, foods and allergens, the authors said.

The authors said chemically intolerant mothers were three times more likely to report having a child with ASD and 2.3 times more likely to have a child with ADHD. The study did not assess fathers.

Could these children also be more intolerant of the toxic chemicals in vaccines?  Will anyone bother to look into this?

The CDC is refusing to answer Channel 2 Action News' questions about a high-ranking employee who served on the board of a now-defunct nonprofit that's been the subject of a series of scandals.

The Save A Life Foundation (SALF) also happened to receive more than $3 million in CDC funding, much of it while that same employee was serving as the nonprofit's treasurer.

"Save A Life was a fraud, it can't be described as anything but a total fraud," said attorney Jennifer Bonjean, who represents a whistleblower who used to work there. . . .

Within a few years, her nonprofit was also done, and gone was the more than $3 million in federal grants it had gotten from the CDC here in Atlanta.

"We as tax payers have every right to know what happened to that money," said Bonjean.

Yet another scandal at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  We're continually told to trust this agency that seems to answer to  no one.  This story should be added to the charges against Poul Thorsen and the revelations by William Thompson.
