Our autism chapter of Evidence and Artifacts was flawed from the start. The change became an obvious necessity when University of Utah researcher, Dr. Judith Pinbourough-Zimmerman announced that Utah’s autism prevalence is now 1:77 children — 1:49 boys. Since it is our contention that the incidence of autism is truly increasing due to a complex soup of genetic vulnerability and exposure to multiple environmental insults, (as opposed to merely better and earlier diagnosis) we expect to continue to see the numbers rise, making the name erroneous and outdated. To solve this problem Evidence and Artifacts: 1 in 110 has been renamed Evidence and Artifacts: Facing Autism.
