    Heritability accounts for 90% of the risk of a child developing autism. However, there may be other environmental factors that are still under investigation, including foods, infectious disease, heavy metals, solvents, diesel exhaust, PCBs, phthalates and phenols used in plastic products, pesticides, brominated flame retardants, alcohol, smoking, illicit drugs, and vaccines.

    No it is not. The original research papers linking vaccines to autism was doctored and was later revealed to be false. The claims that antibiotics cause autism is still being researched and is very loosely linked to autism. Much more research needs to be done before any conclusive decision can be made.
