They're improving the technology that helps them to make these determinations and yes, it does sound like that is true.
Hopefully they'll be able to develop technologies that can safely manipulate those proteins.
If they do, that would be another step toward effective treatments and cures.
A few years ago, I had no idea how integral various proteins were to the proper functioning of so many things.
It's like they're the workers that run the machinery.

I agree.

People are sadly lazy, some lack common sense and the ability to reason.

Yeah. People should really check where their donation money goes, and how much on every dollar goes there.
There are a lot of unethical people involved in fund raising.
I worked with a guy that tithed 10% of his income to his church. I asked if he's ever checked on where his money goes. He said no. He said once he's done his share, it's not his concern.
Immediately after he said that it dawned on him how irresponsible that sounded and said, I really should check - shouldn't I.
I nodded that yeah, he should. Responsibility doesn't end at writing a check.

Retried people like me can not donate big amounts. If I won lotto I would only donate to organizations who spend donations on research and answer questions. Spectrum and autismspeaks.org do not really provide answers to questions.

Some of these organizations probably need to hire some firm that specializes in fund raising.

What I know is CAN charged too much for seminars but, they raised money. John, produces movies and new how to raise money. The money funded research. NIH and researchers listen to CAN. They cared about parents.

If these organizations aren't doing what they should, it's either due to incompetence or corruption within the org, and or the government.

There are many leads to more help for autistic people and a cure. We need funding for accelerated research.
In the 90’s (CAN) Cure Autism Now funded research. I attended two of their seminars and spoke with researchers. They answered my questions. Portia Iverson and her husband ran CAN they have autistic child. Spectrum will not answer questions. autismspeaks.org does little research. I am not impressed by current organizations.
