As a scientist and a parent of a child on the spectrum, I wear many hats thoughout the day. I believe the pursuit of understanding the roots of autism and other neurological disorders affecting children to be one of the most important things one might do with their professional and free time. Comments and debate are welcome, abuse is not.

Why the blazes would you ever want to put a mole of nucleotides or oligonucleotides into your mouth? Very simple: because you've been told it'll cure autism, that's why. It'll also cure heavy wallet syndrome, and who really wants a big old lump in your back pocket making the derrier look all lopsided and such? Just a quick look at pH and RNase-induced transesterification. Remember, you have a filthy mouth, whether you swear like Cartman or not. For the RNAphiles, I'm not even getting into depurination or anything. Just the basics.

    Ep 16 Part A: Deeper into the RNA Quagmire

    Click to Play I simply had to go to the source of information about RNA drops curing autism and boy, oh boy.  A feller could have an entire blogging career taking these sales pamphlets / presentations / mockery of science apart, piece by piece. btw, I guess last week's injesting/ingesting/in-jesting fun was either too low-brow or too brief. Come on and give me some affirmation love. Maybe more voice-over video fun is the ticket, but it'll have to wait until this RNA drop series is done. running time: ~9m 30secFormats available: Quicktime (.mov)
