In the last 30 years the number of children diagnosed with autism spectrum has exploded. What could have caused this epidemic to rise?
Filmmaker and mother of a 2 year old, Natalie Beer, sets off on a journey to find out the truth about the autism epidemic, speaking to leading doctors, scientists and affected families.
She wants to know whether pesticides, vaccines and other environmental factors are perhaps playing a role in the rise of autism. The film closely examines the ongoing debate of the effects of the MMR vaccine and neurological toxins in vaccines, as well as the positive effects nutrition and different diets have had on the lives and behaviour of children with autism.
The film informs without being judgmental. Beer tries to give a balanced view of a very complex and controversial topic and allows the viewer to make up his own mind.
