With around one in 100 children in the West being diagnosed with autism, some say that autism is a raging epidemic and others that it is simply another way of being. Potential causes range from genetics to toxic poisoning to changing expectations. Some argue that there is no cure, others argue that autism is completely reversible, others wonder why you’d even want to try. Some see autism as a blessing and others as a curse.
