    These associations certainly appear to be more scientifically based than the widespread anecdotal ideas embraced and promoted by non-scientist celebrities and laypeople that vaccines "cause" autism.

    (But let's not get into a discussion about vaccines and autism, okay?)

    Hhhm cigarette smoke is certainly indoor air pollution -- so parental smoking in the home is likely linked to these conditions???

    Not just ear infections and ongoing respiratiry difficulties....

    This studied the first two weeks after birth.
    Here is another study on exposure to toxic chemicals during fetal development may also be responsible and why predominantly males affected:

    Given that there were much higher numbers of smokers during the 1950's how can we explain less incidence of autism and ppds (pervasive personality disorders) during that period?

    Not much was known about Autism in the 50's it was blamed on the parents.
