Is Autism caused by exposure to certain chemicals?

    Scientists still aren’t sure what causes autism, although right now they’re starting to think it’s not caused by any one thing, but a variety of factors working together, from genetics to the age of the parents to, yes, environmental factors. 

    There have been some studies linking certain chemicals to autism, such as mercury or diesel exhaust.  The list of chemicals that MIGHT cause autism is pretty extensive, though.  Right now, we just don’t know for sure.
