This article is quite helpful, it includes all the newest genetic links that have been found all in one place... SHANK3, 237 genetic markers (70 percent accuracy) the Fragile X Syndrome gene(the single most common genetic cause of autism)..... not one mention of the V-word.

ONLY 20% but they are pushing it as if its 100%. Only a moron would fall for it. Any takers? Read this instead of that garbage.

20 percent for one known gene. You must of missed how many genes they have found other than that??

I don't take stock in studies that "indicate progess" or may, might, could, or possibly be. Its garbage and jargon and meaningless. It might fool mental defective types but not me.

Then why do you take stock in Wakefield's study? He said the same "indicate progess" or may, might, could, or possibly be, and according to you, it wasn't even a study at all!
