What Can Mute Crickets Teach
About Autism?

Evolution Under Our Noses

 

Majid Ali, M.D.

 

 

The first time I saw a picture of a mute cricket, my mind drifted to the children on autism spectrum. In recent years, generations of crickets in the Hawaiian islands of Kauai and Oahu were born mute—without capacity for chirping—for environmental and evolutionary reasons. I see the appalling rise in the incidence of the autism spectrum in the same light, though babies who latter are diagnosed with autism usually do not show clinical signs of of gene alteration at birth. It puzzling why the so-called autism researchers remain totally oblivious to the toxic womb states of expecting mothers which are expected to set the stage for gene alteration.

Molecular Biology of the Autism Spectrum

Below is some text from my companion article entitled "Autism - A Biologic View: Initial Brain Hypertrophy and Delayed Brain Atrophy."

"Molecular biology is the voice of reason in the care of children with the autism spectrum; psychiatry, its belief system. Reason is the faculty of observing natural phenomena and integrating new observations into the existing body of information – the natural order of things – to advance knowledge and understanding. Belief, by contrast, is one person's opinion imprinted permanently on another person's awareness – a file downloaded onto someone's "hard drive of understanding" without their ability to use a delete key. The subject is unwavering with that opinion and remains impervious to observations that challenge the belief.

Back to my autistic crickets. In 2003, a number of male field crickets on the Hawaiian island of Kauai were found to be mute. In 2005, the same phenomenon was observed among crickets on Oahu. The mutant males on the two islands stopped singing independently as a result of two similar but distinct genetic adaptations. A biologist at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland involved with the study said, "And it’s exciting because we are catching this mutation as it’s happening in the wild."

Autism Researchers Not Interested in Toxic Womb States

I do not recall anyone in the "autism research" speaking about excitement concerning "evolution under our noses"—gene alterations that occur short-range in response to toxicities of human habitat. Specifically, in the context of the autism spectrum, how might the toxic womb conditions alter gene expressions—silencing some genes and making some others loud and angry—within the brains of the unborn in the most vulnerable periods of their lives (in the first 6 to 18 weeks of gestation)? It is the toxic womb states that set the stage for the development of the autism spectrum after birth. This is my evolutionary-biologic view of the roots of autism described at length in other articles in my Autism Course (links given below).

People who contribute to womb pollution largely are the people who control autism research. They do not find any profit in considering the real observable and demonstrable phenomena concerning the impact of toxicities of the environments, foods, and chronic anger on the energetic, developmental, and differentiative processes of the brains of the unborn, as well of infants and children the unborn so affected grow into.

 Crickets Go Silent. NYT JUNE 2, 2014

By SINDYA N. BHANOO

In 2003, a number of male field crickets on the Hawaiian island of Kauai were born without the ability to chirp. Two years later, the same thing happened on Oahu.

Researchers thought the events were related — a genetic mutation that spread from one island to the other through commercial transport, or perhaps even a flying cricket that found its own way over.

But now, researchers report that the mutant males on each island stopped singing independently, through two similar but distinct adaptations.

"It’s an example of convergent evolution," said Nathan Bailey, a biologist at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland and an author of the new study, which appears in Current Biology. "And it’s exciting because we are catching this mutation as it’s happening in the wild."

Male crickets have specialized structures at the end of their wings. When they rub them together, the structures engage with one another and make the chirping sound.

"It’s like rubbing a fingernail along the teeth of a comb," Dr. Bailey said.

He and his colleagues discovered that different gene markers were responsible for the modified wing structures of the crickets on Oahu and on Kauai.

And though the species, Teleogryllus oceanicus, is found throughout Polynesia and in Australia, the silencing effect has been seen only in Hawaii.

Dr. Bailey said the crickets had adapted to become less vulnerable to a parasitic Hawaiian fly that is attracted to the males’ chirp. The fly larvae burrow into the cricket, causing it to die within a week.

But there is a downside: The males who do not chirp cannot attract females as easily as those who do.

"So instead they adjust their behavior," Dr. Bailey said. "They hang around the remaining singing males and then inter
