The increased autism diagnosis rate reflects both awareness and politics (kids with "autism" get more resources.) and there's no a single non-fake scientific paper. ...Read more

Uncooked seafood can contain live viruses, bacteria, and parasites; but cooking the food usually kills those things. ...Read more
