There is *NO* evidence worthy of the name.

The age at which the symptoms of autism first become perceptible is roughly the age at which certain vaccines are given. There's also one very old, fraudulent, thoroughly debunked, and withdrawn "scientific" article. That's it.

You could equally well say that solid food causes autism.

Do not assume that both sides of the debate are partly right.
That just gives the biggest advantage to the biggest liar.
