Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterised by abnormal connectivity and with a genetic link. The widescale practice of vaccination versus the relatively low incidence of autism, including studies that have shown high autism rates in non-vaccinated individuals, makes this association quite unlikely.

Aluminum in the central nervous system (CNS): toxicity in humans and animals, vaccine adjuvants, and autoimmunity. (2013) http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23609067

Quote
We have examined the neurotoxicity of aluminum in humans and animals under various conditions, following different routes of administration, and provide an overview of the various associated disease states. The literature demonstrates clearly negative impacts of aluminum on the nervous system across the age span. In adults, aluminum exposure can lead to apparently age-related neurological deficits resembling Alzheimer's and has been linked to this disease and to the Guamanian variant, ALS-PDC. Similar outcomes have been found in animal models. In addition, injection of aluminum adjuvants in an attempt to model Gulf War syndrome and associated neurological deficits leads to an ALS phenotype in young male mice. In young children, a highly significant correlation exists between the number of pediatric aluminum-adjuvanted vaccines administered and the rate of autism spectrum disorders. Many of the features of aluminum-induced neurotoxicity may arise, in part, from autoimmune reactions, as part of the ASIA syndrome.

Chris, do you have any references about the high-prevalence of autism in non-vaccinated individuals?

The role of environmental factors in autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are poorly understood.



Aluminium (Al) adjuvant toxicity is a probable environmental factor in autism pathogenesis:
