The Greenbelt Reel and Meal monthly film series has invited NCAS Members and Friends to participate in a FREE viewing and post-viewing discussion of the controversial conspiracy theory film "Autism: Made in the USA". The film was produced by Gary Null. Beyond putative causes of Autism, the film also makes many wide-ranging claims about several dubious alternative medicine practices (homeopathy, etc.),
NCAS invites you to come to this free viewing and contribute your own fact-based views to a respectful discussion of the film, which will be lead by a local proponent and defender of the film.
