If we pool 100 cancer patients from lung cancer, breast cancer and ovarian cancer and do a gene analysis, you would most probably find 50% genetic mutation in these indiviuals....now can we say we found the basis for cancer...ofcourse not. Why not...because they are of different cancer types...this study is taking the same wrong approach...

Some cancers have a genetic basis, as breast cancer. It took years to find but it is hereditary and they can now test to see if one carries those genes. Knowing this allows those women who have those genes to be proactive.

Of course genetics for autism would be the wrong approach, but only in the eyes of an anti vaxxer who is ever afraid of science finding those genes and the genes they have found thus far.

The only 'dufus' is you, the potential is only related to the medical care that comes from the actual true findings of the genes, you know, a recent study identified 50 percent in four previously unrecognized genes?? Now, there is a possibility that the potential of medical care will never transpire with the findings of the genes. Time will only tell on that, but there's not ignoring the fact that the genes they have found is a real fact. One day you'll be able to test your own child to see if he carries the genes.
GARBAGE...show us the genetic biological process leading to autism otherwise shut up

"The results show that whole genome sequencing and analysis promise great value to identify de novo or rare inherited mutations that give rise to autism in ASD groups."
"The study shows that the proportions of deleterious de novo mutations and X-linked or autosomal inherited alterations are higher than the previous reports with 19% and 31%".
OH look, friend can copy trash science word for word. Isn't she smart?
