Is this true?

Fragile X syndrome is the most common known genetic cause of autism and autism spectrum disorders.

Sounds like the journalist made that quantum leap all on their own?

It is true, and has been known for quite some time. Go look it up on

or

How many have had their children tested for Fragile X? I have. But the problem is, some consider genetics 'blame'.

The article title should read:
Ground-breaking Genetic Research Gives Hope for Potential Treatment of Fragile X Core Symptoms
Fragile X is not like regressive autism. In Fragile X, they have similar facial features and there is a clear known gene for it, nothing like regressive autism.
Wrong to say: curing core autism symptoms. It is very misleading and dumb.

Autism is autism, no matter what. The core symptoms is the same and that's what the drug is to try and treat. The symptoms of which is pretty much the criteria od the DSM.

Don't you just hate it when people compare autism to cancer??
Another mis info anti vaxxer. The criteria for autism IS all the same. There also is no specific criteria for onset, either. When one doesn't fit that criteria, it then isn't autism. Hello.
