This explains why Jenny didn't breast feed.

Is there an autism connection?

I'm guessing that the thing we now call autism existed before that under a different name or names? "Feeble-minded" or some other obsolete term depending on the severity. Or just "odd" for high-functioning ones.

You be the judge.
Studies show that traces of silicone in breast milk can lead to symptoms in infants that lead mothers into believing they have autism and convince an entire generation to believe it's linked to vaccines without any scientific evidence or even so much as an official medical diagnosis.

Other studies show that real boobs are nice.

More at eleven.

Dubious "via Internet" research, but here you go:
Here are the top ways people die while taking selfies and “being cool”

The top way to go while snapping a self-portrait was drowning. This includes being washed away by waves on a beach, capsizing in a boat, and getting into picturesque water while not knowing how to swim. Transportation came next, with the biggest risk being clicking a pic in front of a moving train. Selfie deaths from falls and fires followed, along with animal mauling, electrocution, and firearms. Most of the fatalities involving pics with firearms occurred in the US.
