A New Scientist article 29 June 2010 by Jim Giles states:-
We still do not know what causes autism.“
That is not correct. Here we set out four ways autistic conditions are caused.
congenital rubella can cause autism”
The Pediatrician’s Role in the Diagnosis and Management of Autistic Spectrum Disorder in Children – PEDIATRICS Vol. 107 No. 5 May 2001
People who are pre-disposed to have a mitochondrial dysfunction can develop autistic conditions following vaccination. The current President of Merck’s Vaccines Division, Julie Gerberding confirmed to CBS News that:
“….. if you’re predisposed with the mitochondrial disorder, it can certainly set off some damage. Some of the symptoms can be symptoms that have characteristics of autism.“
Mitochondrial dysfunction is claimed to be “rare” but is not. It can apply to a minimum of 20% of cases.
And this was said when Gerberding was then head of the US Centres for Disease Control – budget US$11 billion. It followed from award winning author and journalist David Kirby breaking the story of the Hannah Poling case, secretly settled by the US Government. It was after this story broke that it started to be acknowledged that autism has an “environmental” cause and is not solely an “internal” condition [i.e. not determined solely by genetics].
