I literally don't see many Android phones though. I'm not the guy you replied to, but my office uses iPhones, almost everyone here has a personal iPhone. When I had a windows phone, the Lumia 1520 I stood out since it was super huge and had the tiles. In my personal life I come across many people using older iPhones instead of using Androids. I know a couple of people with Samsung Edge phones, but it seems to be a rarity. But your numbers are world wide, not US.

This is where those fears of death judges or panels or whatever comes from. First the government starts with something like smoking, justification? Tax payers. Well then when do we stop with age, or other diseases? Coal miners? Fuck them for getting jobs? Smokers pay their taxes, more than a lot with the huge taxes on their smokes, so they should be entitled to all that medical care, seems like they're paying more than their fair share in with those crazy tax amounts.

There are several reasons. I've read and you can google it, that one reason of increased autism rates is because people are waiting to get married, and usually find a mate in their career or field. So a lot of these people are marrying other intelligent people that probably have low level aspergers or other autistic genes which leads to more autistic kids. I have also recently read a study linking low iron to autism in babies, so older people having kids are absorbing less vitamins in general and probably eating poorly (just working people problems) and not getting enough nutrients. Combine smart working older people that have no time to cook and eat healthily and you get a boost in autism. There's also the fact that autism is ridiculously broad nowadays to add in more people now being diagnosed as well.
