IF there is a connection between pitocin and autism, it's still not possible at this point to know which is the cause and which is the effct. Does the use of pitocin during labor raise the child's risk of autism? Or is the mother of an autistic fetus more likely to require pitocin? This is an area that needs more study.
OP: Are you asking only about regressive autism in children who are unvaxed or are you interested in congenital autism as well? There are a few unvaxed kids in our autism group, but most of them have congential autism. Actually, most of the kids in our autism group have congential autism whether they were vaxed or not. I know there is one unvaxed child in our group who has regressive autism due to a herpes encephalitis infection in infancy.
Re bold print: So there is some proof that viral infection in infancy can trigger autism? Interesting.
