  • Autism is NOT a virus, it's a genetic disorder/neurological one at best. I will not GIVE it to you. If you don't have it now, you won't get it.
  • The strongest link found in the autistic children was between measles virus antibodies and anti-MBP, suggesting that exposure to the measles virus may trigger an autoimmune response that interferes with the development of myelin, Singh said. If myelin in the brain doesn't develop properly, nerve fibers won't work as they should. This could be one way that the brain abnormalities associated with autism arise. The question of how exposure to measles virus occurs raises a controversial issue. Parents of children with autism OFTEN report that the children STARTED SHOWING SIGNS of the disorder SHORTLY after being immunized with measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) or diphtheria-pertussis-tetanus (DPT) vaccine, but no scientific studies have shown a link between vaccines and autism. In the U-M study, almost all the subjects had had MMR immunizations and NONE had ever had a case of measles. http://tinyurl.com/2hgyn3
  • First of all, Autism is not a virus that functions normally. It's not something like a infectionous cold where one can catch it easily. Instead, it is diagnosed. Most of the cases have come from the following: Enviromental Pollution A form of a toxican, with specific proteins A special form of a protein from a DNA/RNA Genetics Antibiotics There are other forms and cases as well, but remember, that it does not function as a virus. It's not something that will make you sick or that you have to become immune to it. It's just a way of life. =)
  • Autism is not a virus.
  • Mercury poisoning has similar symptoms to autism and a mercury-like preservative in vaccines has been blamed by many parents to have caused their children's symptoms. Autism tends to run in families and is now being regularly screened for in pediatric visits. There are some older adults who are just now getting diagnosed with high-functioning autism. http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/9.12/aspergers_pr.html has a long article on Asperger's Syndrome. The following is a brief excerpt: "If we could eliminate the genes for things like autism, I think it would be disastrous," says Wilhelmsen. "The healthiest state for a gene pool is maximum diversity of things that might be good." One of the first people to intuit the significance of this was Asperger himself - weaving his continuum like a protective blanket over the young patients in his clinic as the Nazis shipped so-called mental defectives to the camps. "It seems that for success in science and art," he wrote, "a dash of autism is essential."
  • from playing with dead animals....you can't catch it.
  • Autism is not a virus. It is a syndrome, with, as yet undiagnosed origins. There may be a number of possibilities as to what causes it, but you cannot catch it. You are born with it.
  • Put an intricate pattern in the bottom of a really big jar...... Oh wait.... Autism virus.... um autism is something you are usually born with, develop from extreme stress as a young child or from mercury poisoning. It isn't a virus or something you can catch.
  • ur born with it do u o how insulting that is uv jst made me feel like a fukin desease
  • by sharing drinks with the infected. much like catching gingervitis from a ginger kid.
