Autism is mainly an issue in that it has lately taken on epidemic proportions while the cause has yet eluded identification. One source quotes the U.S. Federal Government as saying the autism rate is now one in 166.

A key point of contention is the argument put forward by some parents that childhood vaccinations seemed strongly linked to early regression in children later diagnosed with autism; the scientific community in general has firmly rejected this theory.
