leenia - " But what about men? A man contributes half of a child's chromosomes. Why aren't men supposed to worry about their sperm?"

Men should worry about sperm and so should women. We are now finding that a woman who has never had a drink can give birth to a child damaged by alcohol. Why? Because the sperm is capable of carrying the damage to the fetus. Its called fetal alcohol effect rather than fetal alcohol syndrome.

As I mentioned, there is no "proof" of anything yet as far as cause is concerned. In the meantime, there is plenty of proof about the damage we do to our bodies by ingesting chemicals and poison. Since there are plenty of studies that seem to indicate that autism may be an auto-immune disorder, its also a good idea to make sure that babies get their fair share of colostrum which is only present in mother's milk. Do some research. Especially if you want a healthy baby. An ounce of prevention...
