“Children with both the risk of autism genotype and exposure to high air polluant levels were at increased risk of autism spectrum disorder compared to those without the risk genotype and lower air pollution exposure.”

This study was the first of the kind to demonstrate the elevated risk of autism when well-established genetic risks and environmental factors interact.

Genetic factors and environment are the two most suspected causes of autism. However, the exact cause has not been identified yet. Consequently, no cure for the condition has been found yet.
