While reading this article in the New York Times this afternoon, a single sentence stood out:

Diagnoses of autism have risen sharply in recent years, from roughly 1 case for every 10,000 births in the 1980's to 1 in 166 births in 2003.

In my mind, there were two major changes in our commercial food supply that occurred roughly around 1980. The first was the introduction of Nutrasweet in 1981, and the second was the explosion in the number of processed "convenience" food choices, nearly all of which contain excitotoxins like MSG, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, caseinate, yeast extract and ANYTHING labeled "natural flavoring."

You can read more about these poisons and their effects on the body here, if you're interested.

And you guys wonder why I go on and on about trying to "scrub" our diet...
