Read the most advanced science of autism causes here. Bypass the commenterati and go direct to the science. Don't waste your time at the sites which pretend "no-one" knows what causes (or what sometimes cures) autism.
This is a website relating to the unchallenged theory of autism, IQ and genius, Personality and Individual Differences 14:459-482 (1993) by Robin P Clarke (the antiinnatia theory). An update review paper is being prepared for publication. Meanwhile you can download the original 1993 publication (presentationally revised) here, and the original 1993 publication (author's reprint) here . (the journal site version is here: http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/0191-8869(93)90316-U, but without added charts of social class and you may have to pay Elsevier $31.)

Abstract of the draft of the update review of the antiinnatia theory

While I cannot post here the actual full paper (as that can breach the pre-publication policies of some journals), I think it will be ok to put here just the abstract (summary), as currently drafted. It's important to understand that this abstract has space only to merely assert the conclusions therein stated, but the full paper presents the evidence and reasoning through which those conclusions are reached.

The causes of autism: A theory now further supported by four predictions;
why dental amalgams caused increased autism;
and why mercury pollution caused the Flynn effect IQ increase

The gene-expression theory of autism and IQ (antiinnatia theory) is further supported via others’ findings relating to four predictions:
1. Correlation of body symmetry with IQ.
2. In autism, rationality less reduced by innate predispositions.
3. Autism being caused by molecules which erratically, dose-dependently bind to DNA and thereby reduce gene-expression (e.g. mercury).
4. Shared causality of raised IQ (the Flynn effect) and autism.
The hitherto-puzzling Flynn effect is explained in terms of varying atmospheric mercury. The Flynn effect has reversed because mercury pollution has reversed. Mercury pollution is probably causing harm additional to that currently recognised. Fetal testosterone is only a minor antiinnatia factor. Autism partially coincides with “extreme-male-brain”. The concept of “developmental instability” is unsound.
Summary of the amalgam case:
· Autistic behaviours are shown to have increased about tenfold in Western capitalist countries.
· Mercury was definitely involved.
· Mercury vapor from amalgams is the main source of mercury in the body.
· No other tenable sources of the mercury are available.
· Non-gamma-2 amalgams emit 30-50 times more mercury vapor, which is highly absorbed by lungs and infant brain.
· Exponential increase started promptly after the introduction of non-gamma-2 amalgams.
· A marked change of ratio of age of onset coincided closely with the increase. Yet the ratio remained low in Poland, where data did not show any increase either.
· Number of maternal amalgams is a risk factor for autism in the US, but maybe not in Poland.
· The antiinnatia theory had unknowingly pre-explained how mercury would cause autism.
· Accords with the antiinnatia theory causality of maintained suppression rather than knockout blow.
· The late onset is explained as due to accumulation when infants regularly inhale the vapor.
· The new ventilation prediction has already been supported by correlation of rainfall/snowfall with autism.

I cannot put this update paper on a website in advance of it being accepted by a journal. But in the interim I can send you a draft copy by email if you email a request for it to rpclarke{att]autismcauses{dott]info .
