I wouldn't say that a deficiency in vit D would cause autism, but there are higher in rates in higher latitudes which would suggest it somehow is playing a minor role - perhaps in detox. I looked into this a lot when I was pregnant - Dr. Jay Gordon's book talks a lot about the things that are correlated with Autism and lack of vit D is one. I don't recall how this works exactly - this is from subsequent other reading (not just Gordon's book): People with light skin need more folate because processing vit D uses your stores of folate, darker skinned people don't get depleted as quickly, however need more sun, especially in high latitudes to process any vit D. Cholesterol also plays a role in vit D synthesis (and also in brain related diseases such as Alzheimer's - statins example of decreasing cholesterol causing huge cognition issues). Too bad they didn't just test the titer levels of these children some of them may have already had immunity rather than doing the blanket all vaccine schedule. Sad, sad, sad.
