Common Autism Facts and Statistics 

  • Autism is the fastest growing neurological condition on the planet.  More children will be diagnosed this year than juvenile diabetes, childhood cancer, Down Syndrome and AIDS combined.
  • Cost of lifelong care can be reduced by 2/3rds with early intervention.
  • An average family with a child with autism will need to fund 3 to 8 million dollars of services throughout the lifetime of the child.
  • Approximately 1 million individuals in the US have autism.
  • Autism receives less than 5% of the research funding of the most prevalent childhood disorders.

  • Studies have shown that environmental toxins can cause autism including environmental mercury (2 studies), pesticides (2 studies), and infections (many studies).
  • Autism must have environmental triggers.  Besides the studies linking autism to environmental causes, there has never been a study that has directly linked genetics to autism.   In other words, you can have the genetic susceptibilities (found in up to 15% of children with autism so far) AND not have autism.
  • Generation Rescue helps tens of thousands of families a year begin biomedical treatment and has helped to recover thousands of children from autism and continues to prove that Autism is Reversible
