A New Possible Cause of Autism

New research is beginning to show that toxins and oxidative stress contribute to autism.  These toxins and oxidative stress damage brain cells and upset the delicate balance of neurotransmitters in the brain, which can cause neurological damage, and in extreme cases, autism.  Glutathione is the most powerful antioxidant in the body.  One of its key functions is to reduce oxidative stress and remove toxins.  If you don’t have enough – bad things start to happen.  Things like oxidative brain damage.

Protien Causes Reversible Autism-Like Behaviors

"I think this is good news for the autism field because it shows that reversion even in old animals can be possible,” says lead researcher Francisco G. Scholl, professor of medical physiology and biophysics at the University of Seville in Spain.

Protein found in brain cells may be key to Autism

Scientists have shown how a single protein may trigger autistic spectrum disorders by stopping effective communication between brain cells.

Protein Deficiency and Autism

Autistic children have been identified with high toxic metal levels, low levels of metallothionein (MT), metallothionein (MT) systems that don’t work, low levels of glutathione and zinc, low levels of sulfur and malfunctioning digestive systems (including leaky gut and food allergies). Various different theories for the cause of these malfunctions are proposed: genetic predisposition, nutritional deficiencies in pregnancy or the toxic effects of infant immunizations. However this condition came about, the challenge remains to somehow enable these impaired systems to function normally.

Autism Meets Glioblastoma

The brains of people with autism may offer scientists a window into the nature of the most common and deadly form of brain cancer, a new study finds. Although applications of the finding are still five to 10 years away, researchers behind the project say the true star of the work may be the unexpected nature of the findings.
