The incidence of autism spectrum disorder is higher among Somali children in Minneapolis than the city's children as a whole and it appears to affect them more severely, University of Minnesota researchers said Monday, validating the suspicions of many parents in the city's large East African community.

What's the rate in Somalia? CDC paid for this study. CDC releases numbers from past years so we don't get accurate numbers.

You're the one with comprehension issues. I said funded, not who conducted it. Hello. Either way, one ethnic group having higher rates only can pont in one direction, and it's not the direction you want. "appear to be caused by a combination of genetic risk factors and environmental stresses that influence early brain development." And we already know environmental is not vaccines. Another interesting tid bit of the article is the later ages these children are being diagnosed.

Your question isn't very clear. All the Somali children were born in Minnesota, Minnesota has the largest Somali community in the United States, and they're all in one school district of which an IEP can be termed autism w/o a medical diagnosis. Because the study compared other ethnic groups, the study itself points to genetics, other than a misdiagnosis.

They are refugees from a war torn nation. They were brought over for vaccine experimentation.

Like any immigrant, they came by ship or plane. Like all immigrants, they get Government assistance and tax credits.
