From scanning the threads it would appear that BA has a childish inability to tolerate any info that does not fit her worldview.
The autism issue hits me close to home. My fiance's daughter was diagnosed when she was three, and we have spent the last three years investigating the issue, while pursuing the most rational courses of action, and involved her in several studies. Data, after all, is an important item in the evaluative process. Now, she is going to a conventional school, and at the proper grade level, but it will be a constant struggle for sure.
The alt med people continue to blame autism on all manner of bogey men, often to the severe detriment of those that listen to them. Consequently they are distracting attention and funding from research that actually stands a chance of helping those with this condition. Instead, the Jenny McCarthys of the world continue their campaign of death. They should be ashamed.
