Jim was reading a report from NorthJersey.com that states that New Jersey has the highest rate of Autism in the country. A reported 1 in 45 children are stricken with the developmental disability.

As a reference, the nationwide average is 1in every 68 children are estimated to have the disability.

The bigger question is what is the cause or causes of Autism? Does anyone have any ideas what the cause is or how we combat it? Is it caused by an environmental issue? Is it a medical problem? Or could it be a combination of things?

Jim is looking for your ideas as to what could cause Autism and why you think that. Share your ideas and comments below.
