Theory Links Autism to TV
April 5, 2007 — As more children are diagnosed with autism than ever before, the disorder largely remains a mystery in the medical community.

Now, Michael Waldman, a Cornell University economics professor, has written a research paper suggesting that scientists study the connection between early childhood television viewing and autism. His basic thesis: Excessive TV viewing by children with a genetic disposition to autism makes them more likely to develop the disorder.

Thank you Eutychus for your candour, I was intrigued by your line of thinking as I share your 'red flags'.

33k: I saw the article. I didn't know what autism was. I looked at wikipedia. I noticed "psychologist", "disputed", etc. Then I saw the list of symptoms, and thought that many of them were subjective and strange. But now I see that there really is such a thing as autism. But many things need to be clarified and ruled out.

I wonder what happened to tv man. I was so hoping to hear more from him.

Shouldn't your name be anti-tv man? You do bring out a lot of very good points, and I for one will agree with what you have to say. Let's pray that we would all wake up to these dangers, but also the sins of gossip, slander, backbiting, self righteousness, and all of those other sins that are so easy to hide. I can throw ouot my tv, but if I still have roast preacher for lunch every Sunday, has it really done me any good? By the way, tv man, I am not accusing you of any of those things. I was just adding a few thoughts.

So for all you so-called Christian men out there I have a question; when will you wake up and shut off the cursed conduit that brings intoxicating, God-ignoring air into the home? When will men be men, and endure the sulks of wives and children as they are weaned from the worldly milk of Hollywood’s tit? How will you justify allowing a wicked stranger in your home who you will not remove? Why do you love him, is it for football that you have sold your soul? Lack of discernment and tolerance of evil are high crimes for a Christian man. You will give an account!

Those who cry out, “legalism! He wants us to conform to his conscience!” make me sick. The day has come to quit hiding your fleshy sin under a cloak of Christian liberty. Your mis-History and Discovery channels are corrupt, your Evening News a voyeuristic abomination! And the multitudes that are going to hell because of your shameful lack of saltiness will curse you on judgment day. As will your children whom you damn by indulging them with movies, video games, sports, and worldly music. You throw them on the fire by sending them to public schools, and humanistic universities! What makes you differ form the worldly masses that live for money, ease, prestige, security, and entertainment?

"Several of the participants tried to imply that autism was a genetic disorder and therefore could have nothing to do with vaccines. Dr. Weil put that to rest with this comment, "We don't see that kind of genetic change in 30 years." In other words, how can we suddenly see a 300% increase in a genetically related disorder over such a short period? It is also known that there are two forms of autism, one that is apparent at birth and one that develops later in childhood. The former has not changed in incidence since statistics have been kept; the other is epidemic."

Junk science rears its ugly head again. I just happen to know -- I've studied Autism and Asperger's Syndrome for a while and the conditions are genetic. The brain of someone with these conditions is simply different than regular brains - watching TV or not watching it isn't going to change the physiology of the brain and thus their condition. This is complete nonsense. Besides, what would "a Cornell University economics professor" know about genetic conditions? He isn't even qualified. He's not a doctor. He's not a specialist in these conditions. It's totally irresponsible for ABC News to spread this nonsense - yet more evidence that news organizations have absolutely no clue about science and don't know how to do due dilligence to find out from qualified professionals if something like this has any merit or not. Journalism is getting to where any news outlet will run any story with zero critical thinking or analysis.

I agree with you that the symptons are subjective hence the use of such equally grey terms as "an autism spectrum disorder".

But are you seeking to imply that there is no such thing as autism at all?

You mean to tell me that cute little kids lining up toys have some terrible disease? Nonsense! These symptoms look a little subjective. I thought that when kids threw temper tantrums they were spoiled and rebellious...

TV sucks your brains out through your eyeballs; there is ample evidence that those who watch a lot have lower IQ's etc.

Dr - I have a friend who has never had a single vaccination and he is fit as a fiddle in his 80's. But he has always lived fairly isolated on a farm, never even gotten married or left the country. May have been a different story had he traveled about and lived in a crowded city, but then we will never know.

"I am no longer "trying to dig up evidence to prove" vaccines cause autism. There is already abundant evidence,...... This debate is not scientific but is political."

This doesn't surprise me. Another good reason to reduce TV viewing or toss the tube out. I can do with the last option quite easily.
