Autism Causes Vaccines: Stories of Neurodiverse Inventors and Discoveries Some of the most innovative inventors in the history of the world have been autistic. From Len Bosack, who invented hardware for computers to share information, to Satoshi Tajiri--inventor of Pokémon--to Ignaz Semmelweis, who discovered that hand washing kills germs--these short biographies show just about every breakthrough you can think of that changed society had an autistic mind behind it. Today's societal stigma against autism is misplaced. The title, playing on the absurd myth that vaccination causes autism (with the underlying assumption that it's a disease that could or should be cured), points out many of the scientific and cultural advances we take for granted and rely on are the direct result of the hard work, outside-the-box thinking, and singular focus of neurodiverse minds.
