Airports get autistic passenger-friendly 14.6.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
For Gearoid Mannion and his wife Michelle, who live in County Clare, Ireland, air travel with their two autistic sons, Conor, 9, and Darragh, 7, is usually nothing short of a nightmare. The noise level, crowds and announcements at airports overwhelm the boys, and waiting in security and boarding lines is a concept that they don't understand, Gearoid Mannion said. "They get red in the face and start running around and crying and screaming or run toward the exit, because they want to go back home," he said. The family's recent experience at Shannon Airport in Ireland, when they were en route to a vacation in Málaga, Spain, however, gave them hope that flying didn't have to be so stressful. Gearoid Mannion had heard about the airport's recent initiative to ease the journey for individuals with autism spectrum disorder — the name for a group of developmental disorders that include autism — and called its customer service desk before their trip to relay that he would be travelling with ...

Vexed by vaccines 9.6.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Vaccines have been one of the biggest success stories of modern medicine. The World Health Organization has estimated that at least 10 million deaths were prevented between 2010 and 2015 thanks to vaccinations. Many million more lives were protected from diseases such as pneumonia, diarrhoea, whooping cough, measles and polio. The fact that vaccines are administered to healthy people to prevent diseases which have become rare, largely thanks to immunisation, has raised concerns about vaccine safety. As the devastating effects of the diseases are no longer so prominent, people have started focusing on the side effects of vaccination. In some instances, concerns about the safety of certain vaccines have led to downturns in vaccination rates and outbreaks of disease. Unfounded allegations regarding the adverse effects of vaccines typically target feared diseases, or syndromes such as autism, sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and multiple sclerosis. Beliefs about vaccination People may come across ...
