CDC Reports "True Increase in Autism Risk Can Not Be Ruled Out"

Posted Dec 18 2009 12:00am
Breaking news From CDC, read: Prevalence of Autism Spectrum Disorders --- Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring Network, United States, 2006

...Although some of the increases are due to better detection, a true increase in risk cannot be ruled out. Increased concern in the communities, continued demand for services, and recent prevalence estimates underscore the need for a coordinated and serious response to improve the lives of people with ASDs. The CDC considers ASDs to be an urgent public health concern.

We ran two press releases from SafeMinds about this CDC report on autism prevalence:

1) CDC Brings Bad Tidings: 40,000 Children Diagnosed With Autism In This Year Alone

2) CDC Study Expected to Announce 1 in 100 Autism Rate—A Startling 50% Jump in Just Two Years. Evidence Points to an Environmental Trigger.
