What on earth is a "snackable fact"? Please provide a reference
It's mostly because Japanese back in the war time married and made babies with foreigners. I do not know all the biology stuffs behind this but I read this on a science magazine.
@ea_.ks you know that MAJORITY of Japanese people don’t watch anime right? 😂
@rebecky_______________________ ☺️ this is a good example of how statistics can be misleading. Even though they may be accurately measured, they can lead people to assumptions that aren’t a complete representation of the truth.
@kat_puma Thank you for this historically accurate insight!!
Oh thought Japan is almost flawless
I’m doubting the method of diagnosis being universal so this chart really isn’t helpful.
@mariaknops omg so happy to contribute with anything to my country
@brockmj37 yea and doesn't even explain what it means. Like are they on top of diagnose?? Should have a conclusion.
@kat_puma I can’t agree more with all of your comments
Maybe they’re just better at detecting it ans have a more loose classification/definition of ‘autism’? This statistic says nothing since there is no globally unified definition for autism and it isn’t tested everywhere the same way, also societal norms in Japan are most likely much more welcoming towards autistic children causing more parents to get their kids diagnosed and more kids to come out and openly speak about it.
@gongouveia Omg!! Found you on the stats 😘
@stalgabbe i know for a fact that this is the case in sweden
@jente.delangen ugh look at all the speculations in this comments section 🙄
@jente.delangen yeah, I think this is a misleading (and potentially dangerous) chart without considering these issues.
@kat_puma True. And cultural norms & expertise also massively influence the amount of cases diagnosed.
because of how many weebs there are in japan
@jennagoochie portugal also consumes a lot of fish. Some regions of portugal are known to consume a lot of particular types of fish with high mercury such as the black scabbard fish.
@katielochry I had no idea of this, did you?
Hmm 🤔.. interesting, but I am curious as to why this is?!
Perhaps mercury levels in the high amount of fish consumed in the Japanese diet versus the USA diet... environmental toxins such as mercury are not studied very much but there have been some studies that are worth looking at connecting the two.... just a possibility
Possible side effect of radiation affecting genes passed on to kids?
@marleyd_ japan has half the population of the us, so not likely
Those A bombs are still having an affect....facts
Can anyone speak to whether diagnosis techniques are standardized across all these countries? I’m no expert, but I believe there is still some debate within the US about the autistic spectrum. If there is no standardized approach, then this chart only shows diagnosis rates, not necessarily occurrence rates.
Bigger population bigger occurrence?
Kids with autism snackable facts ? Where is this world going 🤦♂️ @attndotcom
