blood Type and Autism

No theory just an observation six of us four on the spectrum who have AB positive another A And the last B. What you would suspect based on Mendel's theorem.
If the genes for autism are physically close (on the same chromosome) to the genes for blood group then they will often be inherited together, even if they aren't linked in any other way :)

We all have similar interests all six science geeks. which on its own is unusual.
 
My Great great grand father's brother was Peiter Zeeman and I am on the trail of Pierre Verhulst both prominent in the stem field pretty strong evidence for nature over nurture.

THe DNA site has some interesting tools able to group DNA segments check who has these segments in common
trace these back to prominent members of their families and that have same DNA. in my case who is in the stem field.
 
Just watched a U-tube video on how the neanderthal DNA may have had some influence on being autistic. Starting to see some interesting connections. Either way I have no idea how much Neanderthal DNA I have.

Sounds doubtful. Rates for autism in subsahara africa are about the same as worldwide average and they have no Neanderthal DNA.
 
Autism rates for others mixed with African like in U.S. are quite high. the professor who was interviewed in the video discusses this.

Not talking about African Americans though. In SubSahara Africa itself rates are same as worldwide average. Geneticists still are saying they have no Neanderthal DNA.

Tbh, sounds more like Neanderthal mania. That is profusion of theories that have come out once they announced Homo Sapiens outside of Africa had intermixed. There's been a profusion of 'that could explain this or that' speculations.
 
Covid is Neanderthal DNA related why Africa did not have an issue, not PC to talk about. Either way I'm well aware not much Neanderthal DNA in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Never heard Covid is Neanderthal related and that sounds doubtful too. But it is not 'not much' Neanderthal DNA in Subsaharan Africa, it is none.

I don't say this to be harsh but think you may be too trusting of Youtube and similar sources. Many of them are just constucts with no real science behind them.
 
You are missing my argument the premise of this thread I am not African, I and all the Aspies in my family are double AB positive, I imagine double AB positive is very rare in Sub-Saharan Africa. I do trust a credentialed professor's
who's speciality is just this.
You have no idea on my own credentials.

I never said you were. I was just responding to this

Just watched a U-tube video on how the neanderthal DNA may have had some influence on being autistic.

Since people without Neanderthal DNA also are autistic at the same average as the rest of the world the theory seems very unlikely. You never actually addressed that, just avoided it. But enough. I see this gets nowhere.
 
Before you discount the professor using words like unlikely are a bit over the top she never stated in the video that their was a connection
