Autism Statistics Increase To 1 in 88 Children, and 1 in 54 Boys

The CDC announced on March 29, 2012 that the autism prevalence in the United States increased to 1 in 88 children and (1 in 54 boys and 1 in 252 girls).  More children are affected by autism than diabetes, AIDs, cancer, cerebral palsy, cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy or Down syndrome combined.  This stark increase warrants immediate assistance and solutions.

Many experts contribute the increase in the prevalence of autism to improved diagnostic tools, however, it is important to not overlook other factors and studies which indicate environmental, and non-genetic influences which suggests improved detection is not the overwhelming result of the pervasiveness of autism.
