It's a combination of genetics and the environment. Genetics plays the largest part, however.

I agree with the first sentence, but how exactly are you quantifying the relative contributions?

It's genetics, what people are born with. I can't believe we're still having this debate.

The whole "vaccine" scandal was created as a hoax. It's been taken too far.

There's records of people fitting the symptoms of autism from centuries ago. Did we have vaccines back then?

Size and shape of particular regions of the brain. The variations in those sizes can probably be caused by any of the following: genetics, trauma, environmental exposures, even plain old luck. I wouldn't be surprised if someday scientists discover hard evidence linking to a chemical we thought was harmless but turns out is not.

Using this blanket term of vaccines is misleading. Flu vaccines designed for adults will not have autism as a side effect. Contracting the flu is a more likely result. Thimerasol is a preservative used to extend the shelf life and profitability of drugs administered to our children. A main component is mercury, a metal. Don't get me wrong, I love blasting metal into my head, However, newborn babies and children with compromised immune systems become exposed without a developed blood brain barrier is a fast track to autism, ADHD,and behavior disorders. Another deadly and crippling aspect for kids is receiving a vaccines utilizing adjuvents to disperse the chemicals. Peanut oil is commonly used and likely responsibale FOR peanut allergiies.

There are many credible scientific sources confirming there is no link between vaccines and autism. But I'l paste in this one because it's from the autism research community itself... http://autismsciencefoundation.org/what-is-autism/autism-and-vaccines/

It can be caused by problems with gut flora (certain neurochemicals like seratonin are actually produced by gut bacteria)
