Other potential causes of Autism

Other potential causes of autism include:

  • Candida overgrowth,
  • Lack of glutathione,
  • Viral Infections,
  • Foods containing Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO),
  • A hiatus hernia that disrupts protein digestion,
  • Reaction to type A milk protein.
  • Environmental toxins.

Researchers have recently uncovered an environmental link to autism. Leomenster, Massachusetts and Brick Township, New Jersey both have a large proportion of autistic children in their communities and interestingly in both communities, the majority of these children are found downwind from factory smokestacks located in these townships. Several government agencies are trying to identify the link.

When all is said and done, it is very possible that more than one and potentially all of these potential causes are responsible for the manifestation of autism.
