Autism these days is frigthening every parent in the whole globe. Even when compare to HIV-AIDS and Avian Influenza. In the US alone, every twenty minutes autism is diagnosed.

Because we do not know yet the exact cause of this disorder, makes autism like an enigma, how to protect our kids from this disease.

Some expert called this as PDD, pervasive development disorder. There are three main abnormalities found in this autism : language difficulty, socialization and repetitive movement of the body or limbs.

So far, there are suspicion the disorder is due to genetically, infection or vaccine. By now, vaccine etiology is denied, until it is proven so.

    Dear Made,
    I have read your blog, it’s a nice blog. It would be good if you have also include some story in your work place, or work experience in the hospital, things which don’t have something to do with health. It will draw common people to read. What do you think? I write blog too but only if I have time. By the way, I used the name Alida in my blog, coz it is an incorporation of my name and husband. he he Ali and Ida, LOL…first because I want to disguise my identity. but most people knew it already so it’s not a secret. Love you…

    Dear vitalogy,
    Thanks for the nice and important questions.
    1. Autism could be congenital disorder,but not full-blown yet, until the patient more than one year of age.In most cases, this disorder were aquired according to the first sign seen and felt by the parents.
    2. To minimize our kids from getting this disorder is keeping them always in healthy state.Meanings that we have to avoid any exposure to infections due to viral, bacteria, fungus, etc. Healthy food, healthy environment and most important thing is do not do vaccination when the condition of our kids were not optimal.

    Doctor, I have two questions:

    1). Is this disorder acquired when a baby grown up to a toddler or acquired prenatal in womb?

    2). Anything we can do to prevent (or at least minimize) our children from getting this disorder, doctor?

    Thank you for your information..
