Causes of Autism Spectrum Disorder
The causes of autism Spectrum Disorder is not known for certain. However, there are several factors that allegedly can trigger a person to experience this disorder. These trigger factors include:
- Gender. Boys have a risk of up to 4 times higher in autism than girls.
- Hereditary factors. The parents of a person with autism are at risk of having another child with the same disorder.
- Exposure during the womb. For example, exposure to alcohol or drugs (especially epilepsy drugs for pregnant women) in the womb.
- The effects of other disorders, such as Down syndrome, muscular dystrophy, neurofibromatosis, Tourette syndrome, cerebral palsy and Rett syndrome.
- Premature birth, especially babies born at 26 weeks of gestation or less.
It should be pointed out once again that the link between vaccine delivery (especially MMR) with autism is incorrect. Instead, by administering the vaccine, your child will be spared from being infected and spreading hazardous conditions for himself and others.
