Digestive tract Microbes may be linked to autism

Quote:Bacteria living in the intestines and colon may affect symptoms of autism by breaking down important message-carrying chemicals, researchers reported Monday.

They found that children with autism have a very different make-up when it comes to gut germs, compared to children without autism. More importantly, chemicals produced by these bacteria may affect the brain, they told a meeting of the American Society for Microbiology.

Early days yet needs more study but interesting nonetheless.

Now wouldn't it be interesting if the offending gut bacterial population were due to not vaccinating? Consider

N.B. I seriously doubt this is the case, but I would so love the irony. Yes

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.
