Contribution to Wikipedia- Autism

This week I heard about a new cause that may contribute to autism. After hearing and reading about this issue, I decided to contribute it the autism page on Wikipedia. In the news report they talked about how rain may be a factor. Children who live in an area with high precipitation seem to be diagnosed more with autsim. They say the rain keeps children indoors for a longer period of time. As as result, children are exposed to more television and cleaning products. They have found connections of autism to these two factors.

Rainfall amounts as a possible cause of autism?? I found this to be crazy so I couldn't help but to look up more information about this and interestingly enough there were quite a few websites about this study. These two were my favorite.
