Why is there no effective treatment for autism? I guess the world does not care about us. Maybe the world should all kill autistic babies and be done with it. The cost for caring for a person with autism is high.

autism will always be with us. Some of those carrying the genes but are not autistic are perfectly able to reproduce. In this respect, it is like sickle cell anemia.

And we need to be 'cured' because......? Just what percentage of autistic people need to be 'cared for', exactly, and to what degree; locked facility, special education classes, clarify, please? While we are at it, how about getting rid of all the diabetics, they are pretty 'expensive', aren't they? By the way, eugenics was invented/developed in California, not Germany, and seemed like a good idea at the time. Utilization of those principles certainly saved SOMEONE lots of money! Sylkat :x

Couldn't be furthermore from the truth in terms of current funding, we're the flavor of the week right now. I do think there will be a cure, just that they'll have quite a mess chasing the cascade of effects down to pinpoint it. Autism supposedly, in natural cases, doesn't show any differences on a brainscan or anything that's immediately useful in tracking cause or difference, hence its a much more low-level and possibly intricate mechanism.

I'd definitely agree on diabetes, I known people who pay through the nose for medication and supplies - its amazing that they still haven't found a way to bring the costs down.

Autism is probably a form of brain damage caused by some undetermined mechanism IMO. So, while you may get rid of what caused it in the first place, it's not likely that you'll actually fix the brain of a person who's been effected.

Of course there's a lot more to it than that. If you fixed the effected area, you would still have to learn all that you missed out on. So the age of the person would matter a great deal too.

You can't fix everything.

Do you have anything to back up the brain damage theory? Because I'm more one to believe in a genetic cause.

I found evidence that it's not linked, but since I haven't been here for a week yet, I cannot post it so I'll quote it instead.

Science Daily wrote:
ScienceDaily (Jan. 4, 2001) — Deepening the mystery of autism's origins, a Johns Hopkins Children's Center study has failed to link the typical autistic child's fixation on spinning objects and constant whirling around to long-suspected damage to the brain's control center for movement, balance and equilibrium.


There's more, but this pretty much summed it up.

It would have to be genetic one way or another, seeing how that it seems specific Vaccines and Meds(drug use as well to the parent) would be caused if it was younger than 30 years old,

But past that age where most would have children at that time have an increased chance of the disorder due to age and brain formation issues due to the mother being almost past being Mature and going into an Elder, that would also cause Autism to a specific issue on it.

Brain damage?

Were we all dropped on our heads as babies?

I don't think so.

I don't car where Green89tom is autistic. This is hate speech. Why don't you just link to Aktion T4 pictures on wikimedia?
