The Autism Report
There has been an explosion in cases of autism in the past 10 years. When once it was considered to be a rare condition, today it afflicts around one in 50 children, and mainly boys.
Medicine claims this rise is the result of better detection methods, but that can't be the sole reason. This report explores the many possible factors in this complex condition, including nutrition, our environment and pollutants, genetics, and the now-discredited theory that the MMR (measles-mumps-rubella) vaccine may play a part.
Whatever the truth about the vaccine's part in triggering autism, scientists are discovering what Andrew Wakefield observed all those years back—there's some connection to autism with the health of the gut.
All of these issues are investigated, together with approaches that may help symptoms or even reverse the condition.
