    "I found it interesting that most news reports didn't include a doctor explaining the disorder and what was being done. Has the medical community just gotten tired of interviews where all they can say is that they have no answers?"

    Perhaps the answer lies more with the media. They want fluff pieces that will bring in the ratings. They aren't really interested in the science. Science is "boring". And, a researcher giving a very honest answer of "I don't know" doesn't stir people up.

    "None of the stories I presented said a word about preventing autism"

    In order to prevent autism, we actually need to know what causes autism. We don't know that yet, so we can't prevent it yet.
