Question: Why do boys get autism more often than girls?

Answer: Because radiation from cell phones causes more damage to Y chromosomes, and also because girls handle X chromosome damage more successfully.

Chromosome Size

The X chromosome is much larger than the Y chromosome. The X chromosome has 153 million base pairs and the Y chromosome only 58 million, meaning the Y is about 62% smaller.

Chromosomes are small, but radiation waves are smaller (they have no mass). Radiation waves will pass through chromosomes as needles making holes in a quilt. Such reproductive DNA "holes" are the de novo mutations from fathers causing autism to spike since 1995.

Radiation on Y Chromosomes

Y chromosomes receive more radiation damage proportionally because they are smaller than X chromosomes.

Let’s say a cell phone microwave crosses both an X an Y chromosome, causing DNA mutations in 2 million base pairs in the X, and 2 million base pairs in the Y. This would seem equal, however as a percentage of size, that is 1.3% of the X, and 3.4% of the Y. That is a large difference when we are talking about life’s building blocks, and it's the primary reason why boys have such a high rate of autism.

The same radiation wave causes more "damage as a percentage" in the smaller Y chromosome, causing more autism risk in boys.

The genes in the smaller Y chromosome are expressed in many tissues throughout the body, and many of them must pair with their corresponding copies on the X chromosome (Bellott et al 2014). This means any mutations in the Y chromosome are perilous. Unfortunately, the Y is getting the highest percentage of mutations. This explains why boys have a much higher autism rate.

Girls Hiding Mutations

In our cell phone radiation wave example, the X chromosome still incurs mutations in 2 million base pairs.

The radiation causes significant damage, but girls have a special way of masking the damage; a female protective model (Jacquemont et al 2014). They have another X chromosome. Wherever there is a mutation or “hole” in the first X chromosome, the second X provides a bridge to health. This is a luxury boys do not have, however it is still a hardship for the girl, registering possibly as a slight disability instead of autism.

Female Pattern Autism

Many girls of this generation have likely had the good fortune of a damaged paternal X chromosome being packaged away as their inactive X chromosome (Xi). The upside is that these girls may be of normal health and ability. However, they are carrying a silent X chromosome that is mutated.

When these girls grow up and have children, they risk passing on their radiation-mutated X chromosome to a baby boy. Such a baby boy will be much more likely to have ASD. For these healthy women, their child’s autism will be caused by mutations related to the woman’s father carrying a cell phone close to his reproductive DNA some 25 years prior.

Scenario. A baby girl gets an X from her mother, and a radiation-damaged X from her father. The baby girl grows up into a healthy woman. She has two boys; one of the boys inherits her radiation-damaged X and develops autism.

Evidence of Female Pattern Autism

Research shows teen mothers are 18% more likely to have children with autism than mothers in their 20s (Sandin et al 2015). This is consistent with female pattern autism. Women in their 20s would have been less likely to have fathers who regularly carried a cell phone in their pocket when compared with women in their teens. Cell phones have become increasingly more common, smaller, and frequently used.

Current autism researchers will misdiagnose this as suboptimal pregnancy among younger moms, who may have less access to prenatal care. This is similar to researchers saying that autism has always been this high, but we under-measured it in past decades. In reality, autism has not always been this high and younger mothers were not passing autism at higher rates. The primary reason for today's autism spike is cell-phone carrying fathers passing mutations to their children. The primary reason teen moms are now passing autism at a higher rate is because they are the daughters of cell-phone carrying fathers who silently carried their father's damaged chromosome and passed it to their own children. This is female pattern autism.


The genes in boy’s Y chromosomes have been streamlined by nature to an essential number. Any slight mutations to the Y chromosome can result in autism. Unfortunately, when cell phone radiation travels through reproductive cells, a greater percentage of damage is happening to the Y chromosome, causing a much higher autism rate for boys. In addition, girls can mask their X chromosome mutations with their alternate X chromosome, however it may leave them as carriers of autism for their boys in the future.
