Odds are that you know someone who has been diagnosed as autistic or suspects such a diagnosis. The person may be a child, adolescent or adult. In 2016, the Center for Disease Control - Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Network estimated that autism was diagnosed in 1 of every 68 births. In fact, in that same report, they also warned that this number has been on the rise. For those with severe autism, medicine has not provided many answers. But, this could be changing thanks to cord blood stem cells. . .
UPDATE: Following this special edition of Share the Science with Dr. Michael Chez, he offered to answered additional questions sent to us based on his presentation. Please find these questions and his detailed responses below. We wish to thank Dr. Chez for generously sharing his expertise and taking the time to answer these additional questions.
