Autism – What On Earth is Going On
The mutations of three genes have been linked to autism in a new series of studies published in the journal Nature.
Autism is on the rise worldwide and this has prompted more funding for more research.
The alteration of gene expression can negatively impact neurodevelopment significantly simply because the resulting mineral disparities caused by OP pesticides (Pb) and heavy metals (Hg) have the ability to generate and open corridors for oxidative stress within the brain.
Scientists believe they understand how to normalize brain function to treat and correct autism-like behaviors. They found that a compound commonly used to treat cancer can also correct neuron imbalances in genetically engineered mice that showed autism-like behavior.
