Exactly. They may not know the exact cause of Autism, but I'll bet you that airborne bacteria isn't it.
Technically, diseases can be caused by viruses, fungi, and a host of other microorganisms, but I won't say you're wrong. ;)
The way I've always seen it, a disease is something caused by something physical, like an infection or pathogen, while a syndrome is genetic.
Although, just to confuse matters, one is in some cases called the other.
I was considered to have autism at a young age, because I couldn't pronounce English good. I had to take speech classes to catch up, but I am fine right now, I use to speak Arabic at a very young age because my mom was from Lebanon, so I don't see why I was considered autistic because of my mis-pronunciation of English words, and this was back in 3rd grade or so.
There are diffrent degrees of Autism. My neighbour has it, but you would never know it. He's just like everyone elce, and he is a very smart man as well. Should also be noted that he plays hockey, and well, the other team would have better luck getting the puck in if there was a brick wall up against the net.
Good God, I keep getting described in this thread... I must have a very low case of it, though, I can socialize, it just has to be on a subject I take interest in... Hahhaha, I just made an A in math. :cort:
now that i think of it, my dad might be autistic. horrid social skills, but very good at math... however he thinks picking me up at school at 8pm is the same as picking me up at 10pm GRRR apprently he has issues counting
