Gene Mutations After Conception Play a Key Role in Autism, Study Finds

Researchers and physicians have been trying to determine what exactly causes autism for many years. Although the number of documented cases of autism has continued to rise in the United States, and although there has been an increasing amount of information discovered about the condition in recent years, there still isn’t a confined set of factors that can be identified as the cause of autism. While this problem certainly hasn’t been solved yet, recent studies exploring genetic variations in autistic and non-autistic individuals have brought new insights about the condition to light.
