Dr. Oz says something stupid. It must be Tuesday.

[Unfortunately, I couldn’t get the video to embed, so you can just see it here over at the repulsive Age of Autism site]

1. First, Oz says presents his baseless conjecture that autism is truly increasing. This is something that nobody on Earth actually knows. In fact, more and more evidence is starting to suggest that autism is not showing a true increase. So either Oz possesses god-like knowledge the rest of us aren’t privy to or he’s flat-out lying.

2. No Oz, autism has nothing to do with trees or leaves. As research this week concluded, it’s a single-letter difference in the genetic code. Also, I hate to be the one to tell you this but when grandpa died, he didn’t go on a magical journey. Your parents just didn’t have the heart to tell you he’s fertilizer.

3. No Oz, dietary supplements have never proven effective at all in treating autism, only behaviorist treatments. And dairy in moderation is good for you. I think it speaks volumes that the embed of this video on the Age of Autism site is surrounded by ads for their dietary supplement masters:

So we will. Click HERE. Visit our sponsors ARI, TACA, SafeMinds,  National Autism Association, and Generation Rescue for more information.

And below the video, it reads:

The treatment category is sponsored by Lee Silsby, the leader in quality compounded medications for autism.

No, no conflict of interest here. That’s ridiculous.
