|Autism Spectrum Disorders
Autism Spectrum Disorders are generally characterized as a broad
group of neurological disorders whose cause is generally reported to be
unknown. What are most suspect have been genetic defects, vaccines,
environmental toxins in foods and/or the atmosphere, the parent’s ages,
and any number of other unproven factors.
What has generally been agreed is that ASD is a very complex set of
disorders of which little is known and much remains to be revealed
through further research. There is certain evidence that altered genes
have been identified but this knowledge has failed to provide a cause
for the changes in the genes or a procedure to correct the problems.
More recently, stem cell research is being evaluated to see if this
approach will bring success in correcting these genetic alterations.
What is now known and proven is that a wide variety of nutrients have
been found to be deficient in autistic individuals. At this time at least
sixty different nutrients have been identified to be deficient among
autistic children. It is not likely that each child is deficient in all of these
nutrients. It is not yet well known what the resulting symptom is for any
particular nutrient deficiency.
|Nutrition is clearly the basis for all life and the
source for all nutrition is in the foods that
constitute the diet.
