Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and autism are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors.
Studies also show that autism is three to four times more common among boys than girls. An estimated 1 out of 54 boys and 1 in 252 girls are diagnosed with autism in the United States.
The clearest evidence of these autism risk factors involves events before and during birth. They include advanced parental age at time of conception (both mom and dad), maternal illness during pregnancy and certain difficulties during birth, particularly those involving periods of oxygen deprivation to the baby’s brain. It is important to keep in mind that these factors, by themselves, do not cause autism. Rather, in combination with genetic risk factors, they appear to modestly increase risk.
A small but growing body of research suggests that autism risk is less among children whose mothers took prenatal vitamins (containing folic acid) in the months before and after conception.CONTINUE READING
It’s been a while since I’ve posted one of these. So this one is 1.5 hours to keep you busy throughout this summer.
Sometimes people ask me what music I use to work out / run at the gym.
I thought I’d post it here in case others wanted to know.
I’m all about music that keeps me moving when I’m at the gym, so it’s pretty much all Hip-Hop, R&B, and Pop.
So this workout mix is for:
Cardio: 90 Minutes
Cool Down: 8 – 10 Minutes

I scored some Skullcandys today because my Phillips earbuds gave up on me.
Contrary to the BestBuy and other online reviews, I’ve been hearing nothing but negative things about them.
As long as they’re louder than the treadmills around me, and don’t get in the way, I think they should be fine.
I like them so far!CONTINUE READING
