Studies Show Injury to Cerebellum Having Possible Connection to Autism

I usually don't pay much attention to most of the research on autism because it seems to be more propaganda than tangible. That's just my opinion. Earlier today I was doing a little research on TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) when I came across a couple articles about early injury to cerebellum being the root to autism. I don't know about it being the "root" to autism, but I do believe there is a direct connection.

My son started having seizures 3 years ago. Year before last, when the seizures started coming more frequently his neurologist scheduled an MRI. The results from the MRI showed a beautiful brain that appeared to be of normal functioning, that is with exception to the abnormality of my son's cerebellum. One side appears to be fine, but the other side is almost nonexistent. The neurologist said she did not see any correlation between my son's malformed cerebellum and autism. I did a little research the functioning of the cerebellum. According to what I read the cerebellum contributes quite a bit to the brains functionality Overview: Functions of The Cerebellum. So if my son's cerebellum is malformed, how could it not in some way contribute to his autism or perhaps some of the traits of autism like speech (being non-verbal)?

As I stated, it was a few years ago when we first discovered my son's brain abnormality. I found this information earlier today. The article was originally written September 7th 2014. I still can't quite figure out why the neurologist had no clue.

"New research from Princeton shows that cerebellum damage, especially in the second and third trimesters, could be the root of autism."

Here's the link Early Brain Injury Might Be the Root of Autism

Hello, in regards to the denial of the so called “neurologist” is something so dreadful. Thank you for not being silent and if you can, I would even go up to that “neurologist” aka quack and show her the study proving a correlation or even the connection of TBI or cerebellum and ‘autism’. The amount of hypocrisy and quackery in mainstream medicine has reached dangerous levels. Hence much of the quackery in mainstream medicine has been driven and uplifted by society and conflicts of interest that are not disclosed properly and the lack of transparency. Why is it that we have people who are very pro-vaccines and very anti-vaccines? The answer is because people are picking sides and not looking at the facts because if they did look at the facts they would bear a less polarized and more in the ‘middle’ view of vaccines. There are piles of stuff wrong with the medical world and other aspects of the world as well and it is our job to speak up and fix things.
