The answer is Autism. Did you know April is Autism Awareness Month?

According to autismspeaks.org, autism affects 1 in every 88 children (1 in 54 boys), and more children will be diagnosed with autism this year than with AIDS, diabetes, and cancer combined.

Learn more about Autism, get answers to your questions, and see how you can help spread awareness in CafeMom’s Autism: Support Across the Spectrum group! April is a perfect time to join!

I think that it is sad that it is only that high in the USA... and we have a high amount of chemicals legally added to our foods, food sources, and vaccinations are highly pushed with ingredients in them that other countries don't even allow...
