If you want results now, then you should try looking into cultural food systems that have evolved over thousands of years such as ayurveda. When what few studies have been done by western medicine confirms things that food philosophies have been saying for millenia, it's sometimes better to take a more serious look at them.
* I don't think I'm smarter than the average person, just smart enough to observe our species' behaviour.. and despair.
Nobody else thinks you are either.
Less intelligent people only see problems while more intelligent people see the solutions. Your despair is due to your inability to find your contribution to the solution. Perhaps you should focus on that.
Stuff can't be fixed when it's constantly being attacked.
Please stop reading sensationalist journalism. Then learn the difference between psychology and psychiatry and who invented the dsm. Then learn about how 'medical' science in the US is driven by corporate greed.
Then learn how dumb you are because it's psychology that actually does more real 'science' than medical science. You might like to learn that modelling is used in ALL areas of science as well.
Didn't you hear? She cured her son's autism using a gluten-free diet and some other nonsense that you can probably read about in her book. Yes, Playboy Model cures a developmental disorder that scientists don't even have a complete understanding for yet. She must be a genius!
And what's wrong with that? Don't forget that science is bogged down by belief. I also 'cured' my autism through diet and other 'nonsense'.
(Disclaimer: Both my son and I have Asperger's Syndrome/High Functioning Autism and claims that someone is going to "cure" me or my son are just insulting. A treatment to alleviate symptoms for the folks on the "low functioning" end of the spectrum maybe, but curing someone implies that there's something wrong with that person and I don't see Autism as "wrong", just as a different way of thinking - one that happens to come in very handy at times.)
Oh grow up already. A cure doesn't mean you lose who you are, it means you discover more of who you are meant to be. Of course, most people, like you, are too scared shitless of being anything besides what they know and are comfortable with. Don't let your fears, biases, and beliefs affect your son, that would be more detrimental to him than any 'cure' could ever be. A point of view is only useful if one recognises it as just one tool in a full toolbox. If you can't change viewpoints at will then it is not a positive in your life, it means your reality is constrained. This applies to both NT's and autists.
That's lamarck in action not darwin.
The great thing about science is that neither you, nor I, have to believe it for it to be true. Results of actual science can simply be reproduced.
You sure about that? Because science disagrees with you. Almost anything lately is very hard to reproduce and most of it just isn't reproducible. On top of that, there's countless beliefs in science heading back to the beginning that have never been tested but just accepted as fact, this has become worse as fields become more specific and disproven theories aren't disseminated to other fields.
You might not like it, but for the average person, science is a belief system.
Your 'critical thinking' is distorted by the 'mythology' you are drenched in. Next time, act like a real scientist and not a pompous fangirl.
