Don't dismiss the links with autism lightly-
Peer Reviewed Study Links Autism To Industrial Food And Environment
A new peer reviewed study suggests a link between high-fructose corn syrup and the inability to fight off environmental toxins as a possible contributing factor to autism.
A new study by Clinical Epigenetics, a peer-reviewed journal that focuses largely on diseases, has found that the rise in autism in the United States could be linked to the industrial food system, specifically the prevalence of high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) in the American diet. The study, published yesterday online, explores how mineral deficiencies could impact how the human body rids itself of common toxic chemicals like mercury and pesticides. The report comes just after a different report, from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, documenteda startling rise in autism in the United States.
To better address the explosion of autism, its critical we consider how unhealthy diets interfere with the bodys ability to eliminate toxic chemicals, and ultimately our risk for developing long-term health problems like autism. said Dr. David Wallinga, a study co-author and physician at the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy.
