I'm not saying there isn't a connection...

...but also, back in my day, there were probably a lot of autistic people who were just told to, "shut up and stop being retarded" and ignored and not diagnosed. So i'm unsure which is the real cause. vaccines, or douchey society.

tough call.

I've hard arguments for peanut oil being used as a preservative in vaccines, but I've also heard arguments that it was an overreaction to peanut allergies by the medical establishment.

Peanuts supposedly carry a certain fungus whose spores can cause an autoimmune response.

For most people, early exposure provides a safe immune response in the future, but in rare cases, severe peanut allergies can occur in infants. Doctors started recommending parents not give their kids anything with peanuts before a certain age to prevent these nasty allergic reactions, only to have the number of cases of peanut allergies in adults skyrocket.

Point is it's rarely easy to pinpoint the source of a problem, especially when you're primed to blame it on a specific evil that you focus on.

It's a common propaganda tactic to associate any opposition to a cause with lunatics. It would be great if every people would try to remain rational, but this is not an achievable goal. There will be always extremes on every side of an issue, the media (including social media) will always exaggerate the extremes on the 'wrong' side and it will try to downplay/explain it away on the 'right' side. It is impossible to reduce the number of irrational people to zero, so this tactic will always work.

Only way to defend against this is to make people aware of the existence of the propaganda machine, and the ways how it works.

Yep, ADD. Makes a person very detail orientated and able to take in a lot of information. Theorized to be very good hunter gatherer traits. But has mental blocks on tasks, especially those done alone and not in a group, puts things messy piles but remembers where nearly everything is, can achieve periods of hyper focus and hyper productivity but can't handle an 8hr work day of the same repetition over and over again. Can give full attention to something interesting, but struggle with mandatory things such as taxes, paperwork, applications, remembering to eat.

The traits are outright self destructive for modern wage slaves and are worse with modern tech designed to distract and reduce your attention span. And the thing is everyone capable of boredom has the traits to some degree, those with stronger expression suffer the most, but with the rise of tiktok and such even those with weaker expressions can be brought into the self destructive add cycle.

Oh, and the biggest kicker. The main drugs to treat it are locked behind doctors, and having to go get it renewed once a month for the rest of their lives.
