The sentence that really blows me away in this Lancet article is when the researchers state that autism is a known result of acquired brain injury. Has anyone else read this type of statement in another mainstream medical journal? I think that we will begin to see, in the next few months or years, mainstream medical articles casually "inserting" statements like this, as if the sentiment has been standard all along. We'll soon see statements like this from an NEJM article: "Autism is likely more environmentally based than genetically based" or "Since autism most likely originates from an overtaxed immune system..." It's amazing to see that statements that were ridiculed only a decade or so ago are slowly becoming accepted as fact in the medical community.
