Gut issues in ASD kids are very well known, and most likely your answer lies there. Don't bother looking back, not worth the hassle and stress, just teach your son to take it head on. With a good plan, there is a good possibility to skirt this issue, not completely but partially.
Do go through this board as much as you can, there is a wealth of information. I guarantee, your time reading through this board will be well spent.
Going back to Wakefield story, recently CDC supported 2004 paper on vaccine and autism was reanalyzed by some doc (who happens to be a parent of ASD child). And his conclusion is, African-American kids are about 400% more vulnerable to autism after vaccine. There is a LOT to this story and none of the major news outlet picked it up, including CNN and ABC, but if you are interested check out #HearThisWell campaign on YouTube.
Its impossible to cover everything in a post but search for a research that points to the use of fetal cells in vaccine (aborted babies) production. There is a suspicion that DNA fragments 'may' be the actual cause, as those fragments tend to get intercalated in our DNA. This is a mouthful, and the research just stopped short of making tall claims. I am pretty sure, she is working on it, and if proven, it will be a big story.
Not interested in any argument or debate but just leaving it out here. I am still on the fence about all this and digging it further as and when I get time.
