i'd just like to respond to the question
Has he been vaccinated?
There are quite a few OPINIONS out there that vaccines cause autism, but the cold, hard scientific facts suggest otherwise. Given what we do know about the nature of autism and the mechanism of action of vaccination, it is unlikely that vaccines themselves cause autism. Oh yeah, and that additive that people thought cause autism, thimerosal? It hasn't been included in vaccines for children since 2001 and anything that might have been manufactured before that time reached the end of its shelf life in 2003. Since you're asking this question in the toddlers 1-2 category, I assume your child would not have been vaccinated prior to the beginning of 2004...
