Many Theories: Sometimes a suspected genetic mutation is thought to be at fault. Sometimes experts feel the child has some type of unknown metabolic weakness of the immune system or unknown enzyme, then 1 or 2 or 3 insults to their system occur and it creates disorder in their neurochemical make up. Cdc claims vaccines are 'perfectly safe', others dispute this claim. More research is clearly needed. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
