Genetic abnormalities in autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are widely-accepted; however, recent studies point to an equal contribution by environmental factors, particularly environmental toxicants. New publications investigating potential associations between environmental toxicants and ASD examine the estimated toxicant exposures in the environment during the preconceptional, gestational and early childhood periods; look for biomarkers of toxicants; and examine potential genetic susceptibilities to toxicants.
