Autism rate is surging. What's causing this?



WHAT IS THE CAUSE OF AN ESCALATING AUTISM RATE?


Increased prevalence of the autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and the failure to find genetic explanations has pushed the hunt for environmental causes. Although many articles and reports state we don't know the cause of autism, a great deal of research points to environmental causes.


WHAT DO STUDIES SHOW ABOUT THE CAUSES OF AUTISM?

According to one study, taking antidepressants while pregnant may be one cause.

According to one study, maternal stress may be another cause.

Exposure to heavy metals and poor diet can trip faulty genetic responses and lead to autism.

Being exposed to an EPA superfund site has been correlated with autism.

Food additives and enviromental neurotoxins such as fluoride, cadmium, lead, and aluminum may trigger autism

Elevated mercury levels from foods and drugs may be a cause.

Indoor environment of mother and child, including maternal smoking, low ventilation, and PVC flooring have been correlated with autism.

 Mold conditions can trigger autism.

Increased age of mother or father can trigger autism, especially mothers over 34 years and fathers over 40 years
