Funny how we are told autism has no known cause, but then we are told over and over its caused by genes. This hypothetical scenario means nothing as of yet. Vaccines cause cancers, autism etc by interfering with gene development and the aluminum, formaldehyde and thimerosal mercury are known to cause spontaneous gene mutation. Once again Pharma searches fro treatments for the syndromes they cause.
