Every month (at least) there is a new correlation posited for autism. Why vaccinations and not one of the dozen or so other correlations found (like father's age, one I remember reading about)? There's no money for big pharma in suppressing data here, since there are no pharmaceutical treatments for autism.

It is widely believed that autism diagnoses have increased not because of an increase in the incidence of autism, but because of increased diagnoses. My cousin is autistic, with completely typical presentation of low functioning autism - think rain man without the ability to count cards at casinos. As a child, he was simply "mentally retarded." I spent time in a state hospital as a child and a number of the children had, in retrospect, severe, low-functioning autism, but were diagnosed as retarded or schizoid. High-functioning autistic children were diagnosed as having behavioral problems (oppositional disorder) or schizoid personality disorder. Autism wasn't really understood as a unique disorder until fairly recently.
