    Paragraph is from Reuters news:

    Thoughts? I'm not sure what mothers could do differently about this.

    I suppose it will depend on what causes the higher level of antibodies in the first place.

    GREAT!!! ONE more reason for maternal guilt.

    Any more information on the specific types/clusters of antibodies? Our family (including over 100 first and second cousins in a very-prolific extended family) seems to have a lot of problems with autoimmune disorders caused by rogue antibodies, but my youngest son seems to be the only one with a diagnosis of autism.

    Our path is clear. We must end this menace to our children immediately. We must...ban mothers.
