Only mainstream doctors have been barking for years that no, it is all genetics. Which, with all money spent, time wasted does not apply to autism in 85% of the cases.

There is no shortage of people looking, but at the moment the cause of autism is not known and there is no cure. I can’t believe the anger people express about that unfortunate circumstance. Things were once much worse. When my son was diagnosed “maternal rejection” was the stated cause and psychotherapy for mother was the standard treatment. In spite of all that we did manage to enjoy Tony, and I am confident that he has lead a happy life. Our story can be read at:

Did you watch the whole meeting, Raymond? And really, this involves the USA, you live in Canada. Your interest in this would be what?

What was said in this meeting:
"There's no really solid body of research that tells us there's something in the environment definitively linked to autism," <--- said Dr. Stefani Hines, a pediatrician and assistant professor at Oakland University-William Beaumont School of Medicine. "There are many hypotheses <--- that factors like vitamin deficiencies, mercury and glutein and casein in the diet are linked to autism, but there's no <--- strong literature<--- to support <--- many of these ---> hypotheses <---."

Had you watched the session, you'd know the environmental's they were talking about wasn't vaccines at all.

Why would we not be interested in it. It is about autism research. Canadien children with autism are probably very much like American children with autism. And we do share the same land, water and air.

Besides, the article states that "There's no really solid body of research that tells us there's something in the environment definitively linked to autism," meaning there is not enough reserch done on the link between autism and environment to tell either way.

I was being sarcastic to Raymond, not the whole of Canada. The point was towards Raymond alone, of which if anyone watched the session, they'd had heard the mother thought her sons autism was related to a genetic component, the speakers said there 'is' a genetic component and the whole point for Raymond was, was there was no science supporting what he's said for the last year or 2 and this session confirms it. The environmental factors the speakers were talking about wasn't vaccines.

In my experience even if the "cause" was known they ignore it.

"no cue", please consider Recovered Autistic Children Videos at
http://www.autism.com/fam_recoveryvideos.asp

Should people self sedate to reduce their "anger"? or should they simply lawyer up...

In responce to the topic, Does Autism have Environmental Cause? Yes it does.

How toxic must a child become before alarm bells ring?
1%, 25% or maybe 50% of urine, containing metals.

As always I look forward to any and all views.

there is no doubt vaccines play a major role in autism.

The health institutes are too afraid that immunization risks are going to be affected. But that is too late.

Every day more and more are avoiding to get vaccinated.

The manufacturers are turning to developping countries, mexico, brazil, africa etc, to continue sales of their vaccines for which safety is a major concern

Pro-vac morons can't seem to understand vaccines are an environmental issue. They think the cause of autism floats in the air I guess. How anyone can think vials containing toxins and foreign particles, virus and stealth virus, can cause no damage when injected into a 7 lb baby, is beyond comprehension.

Very great deal and very smooth transaction. PILLSMEDSHOPdotCOM was on top of my order and shipped it within a day. Thats all that they have control over and they done it fast. It sat in customs for a little bit but they have no control over the sluggishness of how customs work.

The Winnipeg dummy has so little confidence in being himself that he has has to pretend being others. Perhaps someone should tell him that I'm not from Winnipeg, Canada.

Yet another self-debunk by the Winnipeg dummy.

for you environmental is anything though not just vaccines. we. know your agenda on this forum, which is a blind vaxxpusher. what we are saying is stop putting your head in the sand at accepting vaccination side effect at rate of 1/80 kids turning into world of autism after vaccination

Doesn't matter what I think nor you. The rest of the world knows vaccines are medical, not environmental. Hello.

What's really a joke is all the deleted posts, anti vaxxers reply to their own posts, and how anti vaxxer misuse and abuse known definition of terms, such s in this article "Exposures to established environmental toxicants -- such as lead, tobacco, PCBs and mercury" which has nothing to do with vaccines. And that's exactly what the USA Senate decided to do; research environmental's, not vaccines.
