Is autism congenital or acquired disease?
As autism runs in families and certain combinations of genes are responsible to instigate autism in a child. There are also risk factors that increase the chance of developing this disease. For instance, the advanced age of mother or father is one of such risk factors of having autism. During pregnancy when a woman is exposed to some toxins or drugs some mutations might happen in the genetic makeup of that baby thus leading to being autistic. The complications associated with delivery can interrupt the processes happening in the brain and hinders the development and function of the brain. Other risk factors include the use of alcohol, metabolic conditions, and disorders in mothers such as diabetes, obesity, and PKU(Phenylketonuria), and the use of antiseizure drugs during pregnancy.
