Autism is a neural development genetic disorder characterized by impaired verbal and non-verbal social abilities as well as repetitive behaviors. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 20 out of every 1000 children in the United States are diagnosed with autism as of 2012, with the worldwide rates closer to 1 or 2 per 1000 children born. There is no known cure for autism, although with structured teaching combined with aggressive behavioral and psychosocial therapy, it can be managed and in rare cases full recovery has been achieved.
Clear symptoms of autism usually emerge within the first three years of life, as children with autism begin to develop differently and at times slower than most. Social and communicative troubles that are visible in autistic toddlers, for example, are that they show less attention to social norms, such as demonstrating an aversion to eye contact, taking turns, simple body movements such as pointing. Additionally, they may have trouble responding to and imitating certain emotional responses, as well as exhibiting diminished social understanding. Repetitive behaviors may include compulsive behavior (such as stacking things in lines), ritualistic behavior (unvarying daily patterns), restricted behavior (preoccupation with singular activities, toys, games, etc.), or even self-injury. While these symptoms alone do not necessarily point to autism, a combination of any of these symptoms could be indicative of an autistic child. Click here to read more …

Between twenty and thirty percent of all adults suffer persistent acne, coping not only with the toll it takes on their skin but also with its effects on self-esteem, self-confidence, poise and assertiveness. Many adult acne sufferers also develop social anxiety as a result of their painful self-consciousness about their complexions.
How You Get Adult Acne
Your skin needs natural oils for nourishment and protection, and excessively
dry skin poses almost as many problems as an oily complexion. Even if you maintain a strict cleansing and moisturizing routine, though, your face takes a beating from environmental toxins, pollutants, and pathogens. You may also inadvertently aggravate your skin’s problems by trying to cover or fix them: the wrong make-up traps dirt and oil in pores, and excessive cleaning may rob your complexion of its own natural defenses.
Naturally, stress, caffeine, processed and packaged foods, sodas and fruit drinks, and especially smoking exacerbate acne. Stress changes the balance in your endocrine system, increasing your testosterone levels regardless of your gender, and triggering your body’s production of cortisol, which helps your body horde sugars and fats. More importantly, stress changes your perspiration’s pH, making it an irritant on your skin.
Oily Skin Care
Keep in mind that no one has just one kind of skin or a complexion that falls into Proctor and Gamble’s neat little categories-dry, normal, and oily.
“Normal” skin has dry and oily patches. Different places on your body have different needs; and, although one kind of skin probably predominates on your face, different parts of those beautiful features require different kinds of care.
If, however, “oily skin” has become a euphemism for “acne prone,” you can take some quick, effective, and inexpensive corrective action, keeping blemishes and break-outs to a minimum while you make your face look fresh, radiant, and wonderful just as the commercials promise.
