Couple quick updates on autism news

written by Tara Haelle

I won’t be able to put up long or analytical posts until after the book deadline, but I’ll try to at least post links to work elsewhere that readers may be interested in checking out. Three pieces I’ve written in the past week or two relate to autism news that I want to highlight, plus […]

Recommended PBS NOVA documentary focuses on vaccines

written by Tara Haelle

There have been some really poor documentaries related to vaccines in recent years – ones I won’t name them because of the misinformation they spread – so it’s been a breath of fresh air to see two documentaries this year that actually provide factual information about vaccines. The first is a high school student film, Invisible Threat, […]

The non-links involving mental illness, autism and violence

written by Tara Haelle

In a bit of a departure from this blog’s usual fare, I feel an obligation to share something I posted to my Facebook feed, along with a list of highly recommended links. A version of this post is also published on the blog of Parents Against Gun Violence, a group I co-founded with six other […]

That link between autism and labor induction/augmentation? Yea, take another look

written by Tara Haelle

I don’t often blog on autism. It’s not my specialty, though it is an area of interest, and it’s something I’m still learning about. (I have a big post planned on autism misconceptions in general, but it’s still percolating in my brain.) However, I often write about the studies that come out linking autism to […]

An important study from New York leads to my own “vaccine story” about my son

written by Tara Haelle

Today’s post is a little different. After I describe a recent study in Pediatrics, I’m going to tell another personal story — what happened when I vaccinated my son. Stories from parents about what happened when their children received their vaccines populate all corners of the internet, and I felt it was important to add […]

Last Week’s Round-Up: ADHD and obesity, pertussis shots, coping with natural disasters and tons more

written by Tara Haelle

Another week, another round-up of the health and science stories you might have missed… Before I launch into the different topics, I want to draw attention to this short but worthy piece on the ways numbers can deceive when we rely too much on the “averages.” It’s a great piece for educating yourself about critically […]

written by Tara Haelle

I’m going to start a new routine for Fridays in which I round up a bunch of links to various health and science news I didn’t get to blog about. Much of it will be stories from dailyRx that I’ve written, but I’ll list other links as well, including fun ones to discuss with your […]

Car exhaust, autism, say whaaaaat?

written by Tara Haelle

Here we go again… Those who closely follow research on autism – and believe in critically examining the increasing number of studies coming out about environmental exposures and autism – have seen study after study come out linking autism to any number of possible factors. Aside from the ten-thousand-times-over-debunked (non)link to vaccines (pdf), autism has […]

Round-up: Bullying, cell phones & cancer, yoga for autism and more!

written by Tara Haelle

I’m traveling out of state this week, so it’s tougher to post some good analyses. Therefore, I’m posting a quick round-up of recent health news stories from dailyRxthat caught my eye (or, in one case, that I wrote). Cell Phones & Cancer — I’ve been trying to keep up with the latest research on cell […]

Friday round-up of worthwhile dailyRx articles

written by Tara Haelle

I’ve decided that doing a round-up each Friday is the best way to include the dailyRx articles that I think moms will find most relevant. So, here goes… Good news for moms as we age – sexual satisfaction increases as we age (even if the frequency of having sex does not). An online tool helps […]
