Autism — what we know (and what we don't know yet)

July 15, 2017

TEDTalk videos are celebrated for their ability to make complex topics accessible to the general public. In this incredibly informative yet straightforward presentation, geneticist Wendy Chung discusses the autism community’s current state of understanding about autism spectrum disorder and how far we have yet to go.  Wendy’s no-nonsense approach is refreshing, and she is forthright about what scientists understand and what continues to baffle them about the causes and prevalence of autism.


Whether or not you are personally affected by ASD, this enlightening talk is a must-see for anyone interested in diving a little deeper into this rich topic.


Learn why we now know that vaccines DO NOT cause autism, why more and more cases of autism are being diagnosed over time, and how a large spectrum of different variables can cause autism in the video below.


You can also learn more about the things we still don’t know about autism, such as the fact that boys develop autism more often than girls. The data on this subject is fascinating!
