What are the odds?

As studies continue to search for clues in regard to how autism develops, some research has begun to show which populations are more susceptible and according to a recent study conducted by  the University of Minnesota, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the research and advocacy group Autism Speaks, one of those groups are Somalians.

The recent article entitled “Study Links Autism and Somalis in Minneapolis” by Donald G. McNeil, Jr. at the New York Times talks about the findings of this study. One of the interesting things about this study is that it was not designed to answer this question.

The search continues!
