New Study Rules Out Vaccination-Autism Link, But Is It Good Science?

A new study conducted by researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published in this month's issue of the journal Pediatrics suggests that there is "no link between neurological disorders such as autism and mercury in childhood vaccines, despite an earlier unpublished study by the CDC, which found a significant link between the two." The study has already been trumpeted in the mainstream media, but critics of the study say the data it contains were in fact manipulated by the CDC to achieve the fin

What is Celiac Disease (CD) and Should I Test For It?

"Celiac disease (also known as Celiac Sprue or gluten-sensitive enteropathy) is a chronic disease in which malabsorption of nutrients is caused by a characteristic...lesion of the small intestine mucosa. The lesion is produced, through unclear mechanisms, by protein constituents of some cereal grains". (J.S. Trier, 1993) Traditionally, doctors have suspected CD only when patients show poor growth, extreme gastrointestinal problems and fatty stools.

An Experimental Intervention For Autism; Understanding and Implementing a Gluten & Casein Fre

Introduction

In the five years since my son was diagnosed with autism, I have spent hundreds of hours in libraries, and connected to computerized databases and networks. Because I worked at a university, I had access to these resources, and the training and experience to use them. Through these media, as well as connection to the Internet I was able to gather together a great deal of information.

Scientists Highlight the X Factor in Autism

Tue Sep 9, 2003

By Jeremy Lovell

MANCHESTER (Reuters) - X may mark the spot in the search for the cause of autism, a brain disorder affecting millions of people across the globe, a leading research scientist said on Tuesday.

A part of the brain that is key to reading expressions in people's faces and which is affected by the X chromosome could give a new insight into the causes of the disease, says Professor David Skuse of the Britain's Institute of Child Health.

Gaze Pattern May ID Autism, Predict Social Skills

Thu Oct 17, 2002

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - People with autism focus on a speaker's eyes only half as often as other listeners do, letting their gaze fall more often on a speaker's mouth or body, US researchers report.

This behavior may help explain why autistics often have problems relating to others, according to Dr. Ami Klin and his colleagues from Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut.

To Infuse or Not to Infuse?

by Willis S. Langford

Autistic children, it has been discovered, can often be helped dramatically by an infusion of the intestinal hormone secretin. The need and the beneficial response to secretin, I think, are dependent upon the amount of damage to the duodenum and upper small intestine from whatever cause, and on the stomachÂ’s ability to produce adequate hydrochloric acid (HCl) for proper digestion. Since these two things largely determine proper digestion, it is vital that both be present.
