38. Autism begins in the womb

http://www.npr.org/blogs/health/2014/03/26/294446735/brain-changes-suggest-autism-starts-in-the-womb

...as far as recent research suggests, which would make it pretty difficult for it to be caused by vaccination. And there have been plenty of studies that show no correlation between autism and vaccination.

On the other hand, there is a pretty convincing argument and evidence for rising autism rates related to the rising age of parents, particularly on the paternal side: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/aging-dads-more-likely-to-have-kids-with-autism-adhd-schizophrenia-and-more/

The working theory being that DNA in sperm ages with the parent, and mutations accumulate with age.
