With the autism rate at 1 in 166 persons I was wondering this...In the news they report that there is no proof that autism is caused by immunization shots. I have been on another thread and some of the mothers on there believe this news report. As well as the first question I was wondering...how many parents with no history of autism and related conditions in their families have children who were born with no developmental delays but their child later was diagnosed with autism and these conditions? What do you feel is the reason for their diagnosis? I am trying to grasp the enormity of this subject and to have an informed opinion on this subject. If you do not feel it was the shots, what do you know for fact is the common reason as to why 1 in 166 children are getting autism? Have all the families with these families been ask to do a survey to find a reason? I was not that I do know. We need to find the reason before it is 1 in 100 or less don't you?
