1 in 28

Age of Autism has been running a lot of articles the past few days about the staggering rates of autism being found in Somali-children in Minnesota. The guess right now is 1 in 28 children. The parents say autism was very rare back in their home country yet all of a sudden all of their children are succumbing to this nightmare, that we all know so personally. The parents are definitely pointing their fingers toward vaccines as their children have been subjected to a lot more immunizations than ever before and some have been doubled up. And believe it or not, the CDC has not even visited, commented, or acknowledged this epidemic.
