Causes of ASD - Intro to Psychology

  • 0:00 - 0:05
    Similar to ADHD, ASD is thought to be caused by a combination of genetics and
  • 0:05 - 0:11
    environment. Some genes may make a child more susceptible to the disorder.
  • 0:11 - 0:16
    Others may determine the severity of the symptoms. Some of the genetic problem
  • 0:16 - 0:21
    seems to be inherited. Whereas others happen spontaneously. Environmental
  • 0:21 - 0:26
    factors also play a role. And researchers are examining whether viral
  • 0:26 - 0:30
    infections, complications during pregnancy, or even air pollutants can play a
  • 0:30 - 0:36
    role in triggering autism. What is not a cause of ASD? While there is no
  • 0:36 - 0:41
    evidence or reliable research that has shown a link between vaccines and ASD.
  • 0:41 - 0:48
    That is, there is no scientific data to support such claims. Now the reason I'm
  • 0:48 - 0:51
    telling you there's no link between vaccines and ASD is because some people
  • 0:51 - 0:56
    actually think there is a link. And one of the reasons was because of
  • 0:56 - 1:01
    fraudulent data that was presented by Doctor Andrew Wakefield. In his previous
  • 1:01 - 1:06
    research, he was found to be fraudulent because he misrepresented or altered
  • 1:06 - 1:12
    the medical records of the 12 patients he used for his now infamous study.
  • 1:12 - 1:16
    Doctor Wakefield's misconduct was so inexcusable that Britain stripped him of
  • 1:16 - 1:22
    his medical license. Neglecting the recommended vaccines exposes children to
  • 1:22 - 1:26
    the danger of catching and spreading serious diseases like measles, mumps or
  • 1:26 - 1:33
    whooping cough. So vaccination is key to eliminating these serious diseases.
  • 1:33 - 1:39
    And we know now that vaccines do not cause ASD. So vaccinate. Now, let's go to
  • 1:39 - 1:43
    Lauren to talk about the anxiety disorders.
