BC on Autism 18: Gettin' the RNA Out (of yeast)

Q: Why would anyone want to get the RNA out of yeast so they can ingest it?

A: I don't know, but I know it won't cure Autism.

Here's how to do it...

You mean I too can profit from selling yeast RNA? Wow? Can I brew it by the bathtub full? I promise I'll clean out the tub with detergent, first!

I prefer using yeast for its two legal purposes... making bread and making beer. Anything like this 'curing autism' with it is bollocks.

Nice vid, BC :)

camille - yes, you too can profit with bathtub biochemistry. I wonder if an Irish Spring soap ring could be used as a secret natural ingredient?

David - mmmmm... beer. Good beer is one of the greatest failings of america, btw.

NM - that's terrible, let's hear more.

Maybe Shrek could help crack 'em open:
"# We hear farting sounds and accompanying bubbles as Shrek jumps into a pond, and he later belches across a torch to create a mini-fireball that lights a fire.
# A comment is made about strong gases coming from a character's butt.
" from a parental advisory during a review of Shrek (2001).

very interesting that you seem to have a lot of time on your hands to discredit Dr. Yasko? You say you have a child on the spectrum...just curious what your current protocol is to help your child (or any other child) get OFF the spectrum?? Thanks and much appreciated.

anon - I don't sell anything and I'm not in the biz of diagnosing someone's kid. If I were an entomologist and someone was selling extract of caterpillar, well I'd have a lot to say about that. As it is, I like RNA and when I see RNA science get distorted and abused for profit, well, I have something to say about that.

Re: our treatment plan - if our child has a fever, we treat the fever. I don't see any parallel to autism here especially since no one, and I mean no one, has identified a tissue, cellular, or molecular characteristic of autism.

I could call the things we do as a family, "treatments", but I prefer to call it "having fun" and "being a parent". See Joel's blog for details. Maybe I ought to do a vid on it. That would absolve my guilt over having not done a paper in a long while.
