The Environmental and Genetic Causes of Autism delves
deep into the full body of past and current research to reveal how
genetic predispositions and environmental factors can combine to produce
the conditions autism and autism spectrum disorders (ASD).

To
make this groundbreaking volume, Dr. James Lyons-Weiler combed through
the past fifty years of published research on autism, exploring subjects
such as genetic variation, mechanisms of neurotoxicity of metals and
pesticides, and the central and combined roles of each in causing
autism.

Lyons-Weiler provides a major overview of all aspects of
the condition of autism, reviews changes in diagnoses and treatments,
and explains how genetic information can be used to tailor effective
treatments, and sometimes reversals, of the symptoms. He also presents
practical forward-looking suggestions on how to design future studies to
facilitate the discovery of biomarkers for autism risk and how to
classify the full range of autism spectrum disorders.

Autism is
considered one of the most mystifying conditions of our day, and alarmed
scientists, doctors, politicians, and parents are desperately trying to
understand why the condition is escalating. According to the CDC, rates
in the United States have risen from an estimated one in two thousand
children in 1980, to one in sixty-eight in 2012, and a new National
Health Interview Survey shows a rate of one in forty-five. By the time
you read this book, that number may have changed yet again.

While
most autism researchers focus on either environmental or genetic causes
of autism, Lyons-Weiler’s opus demonstrates that to fully
understand the condition and to finally put its rate on the decrease, it
is essential to pay attention to the science showing how the two
classes of factors interact.

Wow, the most important book in pediatrics right now and for the foreseeable future
This November 2016 release is a complete paradigm shift the likes of which I've never seen. After 4 years of research on autism, genetics, immunity and disease, attempting to understand and treat my son's autism, this one book brings it all together. All of the factors contributing to this epidemic are represented here. Documented, assimilated, translated and notated by a brilliant-minded scientist. James Lyons-Weiler's background in Molecular Biology, Molecular Evolution, Plant Biology, Biogeography, and Paleontology, and Population Ecology, Classical and Molecular Cytogenetics, Conservation Biology, Population Genetics, and Experimental Design has apparently uniquely qualified him to write this definitive work. It does NOT provide the easy answers, but all the right questions, implication and indictment.

On a little reading binge, this is my 14th book in the last 2 months relating to autism, infectious disease, immunology... the history and politics. But, this ONE book reveals a depth of study that makes most others look like they're in the sandbox eating bugs. The devil is truly in the details.

Even the most exceptional scientific minds will be challenged to assimilate the depth and breadth of this examination in translational research. James Lyons-Weiler has written THE MOST IMPORTANT BOOK IN PEDIATRICS right now and for the foreseeable future. I am only half way in as I read and re-read sections trying to wrap my head around his interpretation of over 3,000 peer reviewed studies. A warning to those without a high capacity for complex scientific analysis, it may not be the first book you should read in understanding the complexity of the 'debate' on autism. I would suggest 'Age of Autism' by Dan Olmsted and 'Dissolving Illusions' by Dr. Suzanne Humphries.

I'd seen VAXXED and knew very well the story of Dr. Andy Wakefield's crucifixion by the medical community and media. So much vitriol over a little study suggesting a possible link between a vaccine and immune system disregulation. Where are we as a society, as a scientific community, if we attack a person who publishes a study recommending more research on the issue (as nearly EVERY scientific paper does). Frankly, I thought the movie VAXXED barely scraped the iceberg on the possible link between vaccines and autism. You'd be better served by first watching the hundreds of testimonials being captured and posted on YouTube as part of the VAXXED bus tour. This is perhaps THE MOST IMPORTANT story in medicine right now. The public needs to know whether vaccines are safe for each and every individual. A vaccine schedule that has accelerated from 12 to 72 vaccines in the last 30 years without any collective research as to the possible effects of not just Mercury and aluminum, not just the additives like polysorbate 80 and mono sodium glutamate, but the viral strains themselves. Presuming viruses as static entities, unable to mutate into more dangerous and virulent strains denies all we know and have learned about infectious disease in the last 300 years. Finally, Dr. Paul Offit, an apostle of the darkest nature, who has done more damage to scientific discovery and public health than any medical professional in history, who states that you can safely have 10,000 vaccines on the same day (revised from his original 'scientific' estimate of 100,000), I say 'TRY IT YOURSELF'!

THE ENVIRONMENTAL AND GENETIC CAUSES OF AUTISM is a comprehensive book that examines the complex interactions between environmental exposures and an individual's genes that can lead to a diagnosis of autism. I had the opportunity to read the manuscript as well as an advanced copy of this revolutionary book. Except in extremely rare cases, genes alone are not to blame. Without exposure to environmental assaults and toxins, the genes involved in the majority of cases would not have led to autism. The autism epidemic is man made.

Citing more than a thousand studies, CAUSES holds nothing back, defying political and corporate pressures to reveal the truth by showing HOW environmental exposures can and do cause autism. This book needs to be read by parents, doctors, pediatricians, politicians, and journalists, and immediate action must be taken to end the epidemic.

” Fine. But
I’m a Pediatrician who’s active on twitter and was sent this book as a challenge to my advocacy of the objective science regarding vaccination. I accepted this challenge – as a physician, it’s a disservice to ignore supposed evidence pertaining to your patients. Having been told this book described a summary of over 2,000 sources, I was a little nervous prior to starting. I’m young and am early in my career – I certainly don’t know everything. It’s written by a geneticist (a scientist who studies genes.) Scientists are supposed to be objective, right?

Well, the author gives a shout-out to Robert F. Kennedy Jr. right in the dedication. Having recently issued a $100,000 prize to whoever can prove vaccines are safe (which they already have been,) RFK Jr. is a public and vocal critic of vaccination. The entire preface is an impassioned plea rehashing many common claims made by the anti-vaccination community. I asked the author about this on twitter and he said “give me credit – in all three books, I make clear they are not objective.” Fine. But, he tossed aside his greatest strength in this emotionally charged topic: his objectivity as a scientist. He also wrote to a follower “it’s up to him…,” me, “…to either accept the reality of objective research.” I’m not convinced one can be not objective and objective simultaneously. And, it’s disingenuous to claim both.

As a scientist, the author certainly writes like one. He off-handedly mentions a multitude of scientific concepts without explaining what they are or why they’re relevant. I majored in biology in college and attended medical school. Even I sometimes found myself struggling to keep up. How can those without a scientific background hope to understand the case the author makes? What isn’t vague is the loaded summary statements littering the pages. They’re typically tucked in as conclusion sentences after jargon-loaded paragraphs, as if to suggest the conclusion is self-evident based on the preceding information. Well I read, and re-read, multiple passages like this and couldn’t see why he found these conclusions so obvious. It’s dangerous for an objective scientist to draw premature/unfounded conclusions. And, when one isn’t objective, you can’t be sure they aren’t misrepresenting data to fit an agenda. As the author told me, his book isn’t objective.

But science itself IS objective. I know that’s true. So, I continued reading. The crux of the author’s claims is that the cause of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is largely environmental in nature. The foundation on which the author builds his claim is a single pedigree (genetic family tree) describing the spread of ASD within a single family: the ASD in this family is all in the more recent generation. He doesn’t mention that the source he cites covers just one family, instead calling this distribution of ASD “typical.” It’s a leap to conclude something common based on one instance of it. But, as the author told me, his book isn’t objective.

With regards to citations, there aren’t 2,000 of them in this book. Granted, it’d be unfair to expect someone to cite 2,000 sources in a book. Then, it is also unfair to refer to this book as “objective science” if it doesn’t consistently cite its sources (as objective science does.) It shouldn’t be up to the reader to go to the author’s website to comb through the comprehensive source list and try to figure out what backs up each of the claims made. As such, the list of sources only serves to impress those who trust the author to have read them and to have included information from each in his book. That’s hard to believe in a book whose author claims isn’t objective.

What’s more, I was surprised to find a geneticist concluding that because we haven’t found a slam-dunk genetic cause of autism, it must be environmental in nature. At the time this book was published (November 2016,) the author pointed to 790 potential genetic causes. He concluded that because there are so many potential mutations, and each mutation is rather rare, it has to be environmental in nature. That’s one way to look at it. I think it’s premature to conclude that our scientific understanding, methods, and techniques are so advanced that we’ve reached the limit of what we’re able to discover.

Like an objective interpretation of objective science, what also can’t be found in this book is any reference to the evolving definition of ASD. ASD, autism spectrum disorder, hasn’t always been called ASD. It hasn’t always been considered a spectrum (a wide range of variations on a single condition.) It used to just be called “autism” with only the more severe cases receiving a diagnosis. As our understanding of the condition has grown, so have the number of diagnoses. Throw in an explosion of the number of developmental-behavioral pediatricians, the specialists trained to diagnose ASD, and you can account for the increase in cases. Even if one doesn’t believe this to represent 100% of the increased incidence of ASD, any reasonable person would conclude it would have at least SOME responsibility. As the author told me on twitter, this book isn’t objective.

This book represents another entry in the long line of so-called “objective” works that are anything but. It will only serve to cause further confusion to well-meaning parents who want to do what’s best for their children. Believe me; if vaccination were the root of all evil, it would bear out in actual objective scientific study, not just one non-objective author’s interpretation of it. And, we would toss our vaccines in the trash. As such, it hasn’t been born out in actual objective scientific study. Vaccines are safe. Vaccines save lives. #VaccinesWork

Antivax mantras, cloaked in scientific jargon
I was sent a copy of this book by a "medical freedom" lobbying group that focuses on opposing vaccination mandates.

The author, James Lyons-Weiler has an impressive-sounding list of degrees in various realms of science including basic biology, zoology, ecology and molecular biology (although not in fields directly related to the arguments he makes in this book, such as immunology, neuroscience and pediatrics). While he apparently has not conducted any research into autism (according to a PubMed literature search), you'd expect that someone with his credentials is capable of analyzing and understanding current knowledge in the field and summarizing it for his readers.

Disappointingly, "The Environmental and Genetic Causes of Autism" does not do this. Instead, it serves mainly to express and justify the author's poorly-supported views about what causes autism, in particular a polemic against vaccination.

What we're in for first surfaces in a preface in which Lyons-Weiler expresses his belief that immunization causes autism and calls for "reform in vaccine safety" as a solution. It becomes even more clear in the book's dedication to a Who's Who of antivaxers, including Russell Blaylock, Gary Null, Brian Hooker, Anne Dachel and even Andrew Wakefield, whose unethical and fraudulent research involving the MMR vaccine cost him his license to practice medicine and severely damaged the credibility of the anti-vaccine movement (it is one of many ironies that Lyons-Weiler thanks Wakefield, and just a few pages later declares that he wrote his book "to defend science").

The book could be divided into several sections - one detailing the diagnosis and characteristics of autism (sprinkled with the author's and others' theories as to why vaccines and other "toxins" are to blame), another more explicitly targeting vaccines and the forces the author perceives as shutting down the truth about them, and the author's proposals for classifying autism risk and preventing/mitigating it.

Early on, Lyons-Weiler shows that he doesn't accept basic facts about autism acknowledged by the vast majority of experts in the field. He refers to major increases in autism diagnoses while dismissing clear-cut evidence that an overwhelming proportion of this increase is due to changes in dignostic criteria. On the subject of vaccines, divergence between the author and the scientific community as a whole becomes even more glaring. For example, Lyons-Weiler (LW) goes on about perceived risks of mercury preservative (for the rational, a dead issue since thimerosal was removed from virtually all childhood vaccines in 2001 with no effect on autism rates) and aluminum-based adjuvants, relying on a relative handful of papers with dubious relevance while failing to cite a huge amount of research vindicating the safety of vaccines containing them (ironically, LW accuses the CDC of ignoring vaccine-autism studies). LW cites two alleged vaccine-associated disorders, ASIA syndrome and macrophagic fasciitis, not telling readers that neither has been accepted by the medical community as actual syndromes. In particular, macrophagic fasciitis describes microscopic foci in muscle believed to represent tiny aluminum-containing deposits secondary to vaccine injection, but no one has convincingly shown that such microscopic deposits are a marker for vaccine-induced illness. You'd never know from this book that infants get far more aluminum from infant formula than from vaccines.

LW remarks that the Institute of Medicine (a highly respected source of independent reviews of medical practices) found that most studies used to support thimerosal safety were "fatally flawed". The IOM has repeatedly issued reports based on comprehensive review of the literature, finding that vaccines have an excellent safety record and that claims of harm (including from thimerosal) are not justified. But I am unable to find the IOM's conclusions anywhere in this book (remember, this is an author who repeatedly suggests that his opponents are hiding something and "cherry-picking" research; the irony is again rich). LW attempts to toss out much of the research vindicating vaccine safety on the justification that its methodology was incapable of detecting small negative effects in the study population. This is puzzling seeing that LW is simultaneously arguing that autism spectrum disorders have become very common and thus should be detectable in competent vaccine safety studies. Sorry, but you can't have it both ways.

Autism researchers have demonstrated that a large component of the disorder is genetic, and that susceptibility has a heritable component. Apparently, since science has not yet found a common molecular "smoking gun" leading to autism, we're supposed to be free to ignore all this evidence in favor of shaky correlations between LW's preferred toxins and the disorder.

Another major defect of this book is that while it summarizes the author's perceptions of what his preferred vaccine-related studies show, the studies themselves are not referenced in the book (it doesn't even have an index!). A little investigation by the reader would show that besides representing a minute fraction of research on the subject, the authors of LW's cited papers often lack credibility with their peers (for example, he cites a paper by the Geier and Geier father-and-son team (the father had medical licenses suspended or revoked in multiple states related to his prescribing a chemical castration drug for autistic male children, and the son was cited for practicing medicine without a license. The quality of the "research" they conducted out of their home is poorly regarded).

I'm left to wonder exactly what audience this book was aimed at. It's going to be very heavy going for non-medical professionals, faced with section and chapter headings like "Application Of Univariate Thinking In the Face Of Etiological Heterogeneity" and "Toward a Multidimensional Matrix Risk Model for Autism" (even physicians and other health care workers would face difficulty slogging through all the nomenclature and conceptualizations). Researchers into autism and related fields will not be impressed by the caliber of LW's preferred pseudoexperts, nor are they likely to react well to the frequent intimations of malfeasance, conspiracy and profiteering leveled at those whose findings differ from those of the author. This book seems most likely to be casually referred to (if not read) by antivaxers as an authoritative tome by someone they see as having impeccable scientific credentials, and thus irrefutable (never mind the far greater number of scientists with equal or better credentials, who do not agree).

I found "The Environmental and Genetic Causes of Autism" to represent a rehashing of common antivax misconceptions and claims, dressed up with a patina of science. I considered giving it two stars because some of its basic descriptions about autism diagnosis and treatment are useful, but it is far too riddled with bias and pseudoscience to recommend as an authoritative source.

An important work on the autism epidemic
This is the most complete book I have found on the causes of autism. I appreciate that the author referenced 1,000 studies. He meets the vaccine problem squarely showing that there are other problems that increase the risk of autism, but the vaccine issue pushes many over the edge. This book is dense and not light reading. It is so well written, though, that it is readable. This is an important work and I'm grateful to the author for putting this together.

Well worth the read!
Finally an unbiased review of the wealth of science out there with a purpose:to begin solving the epidemic that is autism. I appreciated the approach of looking at both the genetic and environmental causes of autism and understanding that while there are clearly very susceptible individuals, once a critical load of "environment" is reached, the % of people susceptible becomes much greater. It is why we have gone from 4.5/10000 to 1/45 in less than 3 decades, even considering diagnosis adjustments. Genetic epidemics do not happen. We have to address this for the greater good and I implore all scientists and medical professionals to jump on board and be a part of the path to solving this problem.

At Last: An Autism Research Review
This book uses published science to demolish the irresponsible conclusion that vaccines are unequivocally safe for all and don't cause autism. In addition, the book explores the multitude of genetic and environmental factors that can send one child into autism while others appear unscathed by similar exposures. The book is very heavy on scientific terminology and concepts and may be discouraging for those without a strong science background. However, if you are willing to learn some of the abbreviations used as well as some classification concepts related to autism you are well on your way to learning a great deal from this book. I would highly recommend this book for professionals who are interested in the actual research on the subject of autism as well as parents who want truthful information about vaccination, environment and autism.

Incredible resource!
Wow! This is chockfull of information. Our world is so toxic today and our children are showing the proof of that with so many autoimmune disorders, nervous system and neurological disorders, Autism, cancer, etc. Something is going wrong and we have to stop it before it gets any worse. You can't keep waiting on the government or doctors to solve the problems. We have to research and make change starting at our own front door. Mr Weiler is helping us to connect the dots and find the clues to these issues. It's up to us to investigate and make change to secure the health of our children of tomorrow.

Establishes a high standard for scientific understanding of the environmental & genetic causes of autism
The Environmental and Genetic Causes of Autism (Lyons-Weiler, © 2016) is aptly named. It summarizes the results of thousands of published studies, most from the past decade, published in respected professional journals throughout the world that have revealed the existence of potent and widespread environmental hazards that have contributed to the epidemic rise in the occurrence of Autism Spectrum Disorders. With well-established professional and academic credentials in computational molecular biology, ecology and related disciplines, Dr. Lyons-Weiler is uniquely qualified to analyze and synthesize the findings of thousands of scientists, and offers a solid perspective from which to study the Autism epidemic: It has environmental and genetic causes. There is no “autism gene.” A variety of genetic conditions have been discovered that are associated with the emergence of autism symptoms. The simple fact is that far more people have “autism genes” than the relatively small but growing number of people who have problematic “autism symptoms.” Genetics don’t change fast enough to account for the rate of autism symptom increase in the human population. While there is no single environmental pollutant that “causes” autism, some substances are well known to have antimicrobial effects and have been used as disinfectants, preservatives and medical treatments throughout history for that reason (mercury, for example). As environmental hazards have become increasingly prevalent, especially over the past 50 years, it is certain that a synergistic interaction between the genetic and environmental causes of autism has been occurring at an accelerating rate. This book addresses that interaction carefully and thoughtfully, and reveals the science underlying legitimate concerns for mercury and aluminum intoxication, chronic microglial activation, chronic mitochondrial dysfunction, protein synthesis disruption of immune systems, and genetic mutations (including abnormal copy number variations that are triggered by exposure to environmental hazards).

Lacks scientific rigor... preloaded agenda and pseudoscience
If I were grading this as a high school science paper, I'd assign an F....F for a perversion of the basics of the scientific process. Author has an anti-vax agenda, tosses out a few unimpressive studies (read other critical reviews for great details), bemoans big pharma, ignores legitimate autism research or tortuously twists it to fit his agenda , and voila--he's made his case. The author seems to think his work deserves kudos simply because he dares to be a contrarian and declare autism environmental in origin with basis to support such a broad and definitive causation.

Lots of Information; Hyperfocused on Vaccines
This was a very extensive look at the past and present research on autism. I thought the emphasis on vaccines was excessive. There were some points in the book where I felt like saying "I got it. Vaccines have a lot of toxic ingredients. Now can we please cover some other environmental influences even half as much as you are covering vaccines!" I also found it a little weak on how this information can be used to help with treatments. There was more information on prevention.

Exhaustive comparison of multiple possible connections related to Autism. It would take a photographic memory to remember all discussed here. Big picture I got: multiple factors involved with ASD. To say Autism is purely genetic is ignorant, yet here we are as a society. Recommended reading for all. Although it is dizzying to listen (audiobook) at times to all the factors, it is necessary to see how little we understand or society cares to understand about Autism.

This author has lately emerged as a critic of vaccination which he blames for triggering autism. So it's not a surprise that "The Environmental and Genetic Causes of Autism" focuses heavily on his theories, which he attempts to back up with references to the scientific literature.

However, none of the papers to which he refers are referenced in the book, and the much greater and far more credible scientific literature establishing the safety and usefulness of vaccines goes unmentioned, except for This author has lately emerged as a critic of vaccination which he blames for triggering autism.

However, none of the papers to which he refers are referenced in the book, and the much greater and far more credible scientific literature establishing the safety and usefulness of vaccines goes unmentioned, except for brief dismissals for alleged bias. Lyons-Weiler is quick to suggest that those with training and expertise in fields bearing on immunization (which he does not possess) are deceptive and/or pharma shills. Yet he gives a shout-out in the book to Andrew Wakefield, who lost his license to practice medicine due to poorly conducted and unethical research targeting the MMR vaccine, while collecting a large sum of money from a lawyers' group hoping to sue vaccine makers and attempting to patent a vaccine of his own which would have competed with the MMR.

While blaming vaccines and purported environmental toxins for autism, Lyons-Weiler pooh-poohs strong evidence that genetics are important in its development. Because there are multiple genes linked to autism and not a single chromosomal aberration causing most or all cases, he basically argues that genetics are unimportant. He is not convincing on this score.

Beyond its cherry-picking of research, endorsement of failed theories about vaccine "toxins" and character assassination of vaccine researchers and other medical professionals, this book is dismally hard to get through, employing dense scientific jargon that would slow down knowledgeable health care workers. Those with limited or no background in biology and medicine would probably find their eyes glazing over early on.
