2. Are viruses linked to autism?
Several researchers and parents have asserted viruses – both in vaccines and "wild" viruses – may be linked to autism.
Dr. Andrew Wakefield of Great Britain first raised the concern that the MMR vaccine may cause autism in his the late 1990s and the debate continues today.
