This interesting study indicates that epigenetic changes to gene expression, caused by a father's obesity, can be genetically passed on to his child, doubling the child's risk of autism or Aspergers. This could be part of the explanation for the increases in ASD diagnoses in the last couple of decades, because the incidence of obesity has also greatly increased in the same time period. Add this to the expanded definitions of ASDs, and it becomes obvious why ASD cases have greatly increased in numbers.

I suppose that the anti-vaxxers will now be claiming that vaccines cause obesity, and therefore autism. LOL

And what about the hundreds of thousands on non-obese parents who have a child that regresses into autism after a series of vaccines then? Let me guess, a coincidence or unknown underlying disorder, or an old grandfather, TV, cell phones, video games... have I left any out?

Where is the Winnipeg (Ross Coe) dummy's evidence that more kids regress into autism just after vaccinations than at any other time either before or after vaccination. The NEJM published figures show that (of those who do regress) only 1% do so within 6 months of being vaccinated, whereas 16.7% do so before vaccination, and the rest (82.3%) do so more than 6 months after vaccination, including 35.2% who regress more than 3 years after vaccination.

The headline study does NOT state that only obese fathers are responsible for autistic kids. It states that an overweight or obese father is twice as likely to have an autistic kid as a normal weight father.

You just provided it Einstein. Its a regression, its not instantaneous. It varies with each vaccine poisoned child as you describe...thanks again Einstein!!!

More rubbish from the Winnipeg (Ross Coe) dummy. Any scientist would tell you that there is no meaningful correlation between vaccination and regression into autism evident from the NEJM results. Using Ross Coe dumbo statistics, you could conclude that non-vaccinated kids are 16.7 times as likely to regress into autism, than kids soon after vaccination, and therefore non-vaccination was to blame. I suppose that if regression occured 50 years after vaccination, Ross Coe would still insist that vaccination was the cause. Why not blame drinking milk, or starting school? They are statistically just as likely (or even more so) as vaccination.
