I saw this news article the other day. This came up because recently in the UK they've scrapped the tax disk and they're doing it all online now. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-29442524 I'm wondering if that boy as Autism. I couldn't find any articles which mentioned it but it seems very likely to me. I mean, who else would collect tax disks like that? And he somehow looks Autistic as well. In that case I suppose that he won't be coping too well with the end of the tax disk in the UK. Any ideas?
My first topic post! I've always been an avid Radio 4 listener, especially to the news - World at One, 5pm, 6pm, 10pm etc etc. I've rarely lived with a tv, but when I did, I'd watch Newsnight and other news programmes. Unfortunately there is a downside to The News, to grab your attention, articles are designed to create a reaction and most of these are negative or frustrating. I'd get angry or depressed or saddened or extremely worried. Or sickened by political propagandising and unpleasant manipulative jingo-ism. None of which you can alter or change in any way. So, towards the end of last year, I decided to completely stop The News. No papers, no radio, no tv, or online news. In fact, we're bombarded by it constantly. Today, I went into a HSBC branch which had a tv news feed going, my doctor has a tv installed in the waiting room. Tricky as it is to avoid 'News', nevertheless I've found life much less stressful without it. I was wondering if anyone had tried anything similar or even whether the idea appeals. Could or do you, live without it?
http://www.sheboyganpress.com/article/20130213/SHE0101/302130290/Study-links-folic-acid-lower-autism-risk?nclick_check=1 This article is about a scientific test they have done which seems to show the amount of folic acid increasing decreasing the incidence of autism. It's a fairly interesting read. That being said, I personally take every news article in true history of ever relating to ASDs with a large amount of scepticism.
