Environmental Toxins

According to recent evidence, up to 40-50 percent of variance in autism may be related to environmental factors1. Environmental toxins can be affected by a variety of factors including genetics, diet, liver and kidney health, microbiome, age, gender, lifestyle, and immune system capacity2. Anyone of these factors can have an adverse effect on some of the physiological abnormalities in individuals with Autism. Certain toxicants are known to inhibit mitochondrial dysfunction, deplete glutathione, contribute to immune dysregulation and increase oxidative stress. These specific alterations in the body are common among individuals with Autism and ADHD.3
