  • Anon message is a dangerous one. Balanced research is very important. We do not know what causes Autism. I wish we did. Vaccines had protected us for generations and many diseases have been eradicated. Do some react badly or worse to vaccines? Sure, but that is the case for all medications, foods, allergens.

  • The cause of Autism is unknown. A study was done where the "Dr. proved" vaccines were the cauyse. That study has since been proven to be garbage science. If vaccines are so terribly bad..why is it NONE of the issues in todays children showed up in generations since the 50's? I have a chiold on the spectrum. I also believe autism is extremely over diagnosed. A child has some issues and lazy Dr's throw them under the 'catch all bus" of Autism. Same as they did with ADHD in the 90's. So many factors play a part. Genetics, enviroment, pesticides, preservatives IN MY OPINION are all more reasonable factors to look at than vaccines.

  • Autism is a developmental disorder that appears in the first 3 years of life, and affects the brain's normal development of social and communication skills.

    Causes, incidence, and risk factors

    Autism is a physical condition linked to abnormal biology and chemistry in the brain. The exact causes of these abnormalities remain unknown, but this is a very active area of research. There are probably a combination of factors that lead to autism.

    Genetic factors seem to be important. For example, identical twins are much more likely than fraternal twins or siblings to both have autism. Similarly, language abnormalities are more common in relatives of autistic children. Chromosomal abnormalities and other nervous system (neurological) problems are also more common in families with autism.

    A number of other possible causes have been suspected, but not proven. They involve:

    Diet


    Digestive tract changes

  • No one knows how children get Autism. There are TONS of theories form genetics, to a collection of traits that appear as a disability down to vaccines. Nothing as of yet has been proven as definitive.

    Not talking alone means nothing. A speech delay, if there was one, alone does not define Autism.

    As far as vaccines being a big deal now for DH. I think you need to sit down together do some research and decide how you want to go form there. Delayed vaccines may prove to be a good compromise.
