notorious producers of autism
The condition known as autism can affect children as well as adults. There are various types of
autism that can display in an array of symptoms. Most people diagnosed with autism may display
trouble with communication skills, can seem withdrawn and may struggle to cope with daily
conventions. While experts are still unsure of the precise cause of autism, there are a veriety of
factors to take into consideration. This article will look at some of the potential causes for autism.
It is believed by researchers that there may be a genetic link associated to autism. Autism does
tend to run in families, and parents with autistic family members are more likely than average to
have autistic children. Genetics do have a role in the condition, but experts agree there are other
factors to take into consideration. Children are more susceptible to autism if there is a link within
the family, but there is some debate as to whether the environment in which the child is raised in
may play a part. Scientists are still studying this issue, and as more is learned about genetics, it
will be easier to see which genes are associated with autism.
There is evidence that one cause of autism is parents having children at an older age. Studies
have shown that a child is more likely to be autistic the older the mother is. To a lesser degree the
father's age can also play a factor. Over the years the age of parents has increased as well as the
number of autism diagnoses. In nations around the world, this is seen more in those countries
that are developed or wealthy. This is only one possible cause of autism, as many young parents
also give birth to autistic children, and the majority of children born to older parents are not
autistic. In many studies it has been shown that the risk for having a child with autism is greater
the older the parents are.
In general, many of the debates regarding the causes of autism are between mainstream
scientists and medical researchers on the one hand, and alternative or natural health practitioners
on the other. The mainstream view of autism tends to be that it's mainly a genetic condition, while
the alternative view usually blames factors such as environmental toxins, vaccines and poor
nutrition. Since no one really knows, then it's certainly a possibility that both of them are right.
Obviously more research needs to be done about it. It is possibly something touched on by both
sides plus something totally unknown and different from both sides could be the actual cause.
Our conversation has really only kind of scratched the surface in this vast area of study. There is
very likely a complex picture of truth since there are different kinds of autism that exhibit different
symptoms. But it is a good sign that more of the general population knows about autism, and
hopefully that can help with appropriate funding for more research. With more sophisticated
advances in medicine each year, perhaps one day autism will be thoroughly understood and
