Szpir M.


EHP freelance writer.

Regardless of which is true, the prevalence of ASDs raises the fundamental question of what causes these disorders. If there is indeed a rise in the number of cases, it would seem likely that a change in the environment could be the culprit. A number of major studies now under way are searching for clues about how the environment may contribute to the development of ASDs.
