Why is Autism on the Rise?

Autism affects the most innocent among us and autism experts who research this topic of concern are still “puzzled” as to why this is occurring at a higher frequency over the years.  We know that pharmaceutical companies put pressure on researchers to produce data that is aligned with the benefits of new medicine in order for billions in gain. Utilitarianism is an applied phrase that means to help the greater good. The brain has yet to be completely mapped and there are unknown processes that may unlock the answer as to why autism is hurting our children. Our society produces new drugs to fight new problems and we have become a culture of pill poppers. There seems to be a mutation that causes the effects of autism but isn’t this the case with most new phenomenon that we cannot fully explain. The evidence is inconclusive and my heart breaks for the affected children that want to have a normal average life but are sentenced to life with autism.

Polio was once the culprit and discoveries aided our adaptive ability – the case of autism is a growing concern that has the public involved – big business listens when we all speak together and we are hopeful that there will be a conclusive answer to this demoralizing problem soon.  Autism affects us all.

You could donate for continued research to fight the growing problem of autism. The scariest concern is that autism can happen to any family and nobody knows why which is why this cause is so important – below is a link to get involved right now:


Leadership is about identifying problems, setting goals, and overcoming obstacles – this is a problem we all face.
