(Joan Swirsky – RenewAmerica) According to the Atlanta-based U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s latest statistics, in 2020 one in 36 children (approximately four percent of boys and one percent of girls) was estimated to have autism spectrum disorder, estimates that are significantly higher than those in all previous years. White children are about 19 percent more likely than black children and 65 percent more likely than Hispanic children to be diagnosed with autism.
Experts offer various reasons for the general increase in this condition:
- The role that being an older parent plays not only in the incidence of autism but also Down syndrome and other developmental disabilities.
- Something” in the environment.
- The increasing number of vaccines given to infants and children, which today routinely number 16.
What is consistently omitted, however, is the role that ultrasound exams during pregnancy may and probably do play not only in this seeming black/white disparity, but in the rapidly escalating incidence of the condition. More about that below.
