That's what I've read, that it can effect the brain. Though I don't know any girls with autism, and the only boy I know is circ'ed and vax'd (in real life for both). I'm definitely not saying either of those cause it. It was really just a question out of curiosity.

And I don't know if this is the article a PP was referring to- http://www.drmomma.org/2009/10/mri-s...tered.html?m=1

Eta- there is also this about circ'ing and brain damage- http://www.cirp.org/library/psych/brain_damage/
