Lyme Disease

Brominated flame retardants (BDEs) are used in kids pajamas well as in computers.  They include poly-, penta-, octa-, and deca-brominated diphenyl and are related to polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) which were outlawed in the 1970s.  Many computer companies still also use mercury, lead and other chemicals in central processing units and monitors.  At the University of California, Davis, researchers are studying a possible link to the fire retardants and autism.  June 2004

Food Allergies and Sensitivities

Many autistic people have multiple food allergies or sensitivities.  They are typically allergic to gluten which is the break down of wheat, rye, barley and oats which is Celiacs Disease as well as casein which is the break down of dairy products.  Surprisingly, these two foods have almost the exact same chemical make-up.  When the offending food crosses from the blood and goes to the brain it can act as an opiate in the brain this is called Leaky Gut Syndrome.  It may cause behavior problems as well as other symptoms.  Many parents have used the gluten-free/casein-free (GF/CF) diet and have seen great improvement or recovery especially in young children.
