You can't have an autistic child if you don't have a child.

Beats putting in the years of actual work it takes to raise an autistic child in a neurotypical world, I guess.

Wrong.  Cures for autism include:
1) Counting boxes of toothpicks.
2) Driving in the driveway on Sundays.
3) Blackjack hustling.
4) Judge Wapner.

There are no health benefits to drinking hydrogen peroxide but properly diluted it probably won't hurt you either.

       Autism is caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors.

Just tell your wife to go into a sealed room and premix the two chemicals for convenience.

Take your kid to the movies and out for ice cream and by time you get home the situation will have resolved itself.

None of those scientific or medical works offer a cure for autism, or even a clear and unambiguous cause. Desperate parents will cling to a comforting (to them) lie over the mountains of uncomfortable truth.

It isn't just parents that do that of course, and that's a bigger problem for our species than autism will ever be.

I have a crazy cousin that reads and believes most of these things, too.  Luckily, she hasn't fed her children acid yet, but she was making them eat a teaspoon of sage each morning for its "medicinal properties".  She read about it on Pinterest.

Are these parents who are trying to kill their "defective" kid that they don't want to take care off and just going "UH ITS A CURE, SEE" when they get caught?

And even if the parents are only misguided idiots who shouldnt be trusted with children, what about the people peddling these witch doctor cures? Someone up this chain has to be intentionally giving this info out knowing that'll push idiots into poisoning/killing their children and that it has nothing to do with autism.

What the hell happened to harmless quack cures like sleeping with your feet in plastic bags of lemon oil or just drinking a shiat ton of orange juice? Who the hell sees the stuff they use to kill the green goo that would grow in their pool as good for ingestion?

And to clarify, my wife doesn't buy into any of that stuff, at all, thank God. She has a great education and grounding in science that frequently dealt with the problem of 'pseudoscience,' with its methods and appeals and dangers, so she spots the red flags of nonsense readily.

But yeah. We worked hard for our kids. An adoption and an IVF. So people like this, who seem to reproduce in such a carefree and prolific manner, only to abuse the kids in myriad ways, makes her furious nearly beyond words. And having one fervent anti-vaxxer in our lives, in a relationship that we can't simply discard, is soul-crushing to her to have to deal with.

I don't think you could vaccinate for it, but I honestly believe that early childhood and prenatal vaccines may actually decrease the complications and severity of autism.  Childhood disease is really hard on brain development, and we already know that schizophrenia has both a genetic and an environmental component, basically you have the gene that makes you vulnerable to schizophrenia, and then your mother has a sever fever during pregnancy which causes the brain to develop wrong.  You need both those things together, and I would not be surprised if autism works much the same way.

Behavioral Center Clinical Director Kelly Goudreau added that it's natural for parents to want to find a cure for their child's autism and it's common for them to look towards "home remedies." However, she adds that it's important to remember that there is no "cure" for autism, and that any treatment that is administered should be one that is backed by research and scientific evidence.

There's your problem.  Once we decided Jenny McCarthy was a reliable source for Autism and its causes, we threw research and scientific evidence out the window.

Proof that some people (dumb people, to be clear, not any particular ethnicity or nationality) should be discouraged from reproducing. Not forcibly via sterilization, but just ... discouraged.

"Hey, parenthood, like everything else, isn't for everybody. If you think drinking bleach is OK, just don't have kids. Stick with pets."

Also, how about -- instead of acting like nothing can be done about it -- we start actually prosecuting people for disseminating harmful shiat like this, both products and the marketing. Telling people to poison their kids to cure autism isn't a First Amendment issue. It's enabling child abuse. It should be pursued and prosecuted as a crime.
