As of 2015, autism is estimated to be affecting 24.8 million people worldwide. 11-year-old Erato Kardula from Macedonia is one of them.

Autism could now be added to the lengthy and perpetually-expanding list of afflictions and symptoms treatable with the one product of nature shamefully prohibited by the federal government — the “miracle” palliative, cannabis.
One in every 68 children in the United States is now affected by autism, and the number of kids coping with the developmental disorder has been increasing at an explosive rate in recent years. With onset most common during infancy and early childhood, autism can impact social and communication skills and may cause repetitive or compulsive behaviors, among other manifestations.

The study of histamine has been attracting quite a bit of attention over the last few years — and not just in relation to seasonal allergies or insect bites. The compound is also associated with a variety of other health complaints, from migraines and depression to schizophrenia. And now scientists have discovered another surprising connection to the naturally occurring chemical: autism.

With autism rates growing at concerning rates, it’s imperative that we find as many ways to prevent the disease while easing the symptoms (while of course looking for treatments). There are many tips out there for dealing with autism and its symptoms, though you may not have heard of this one – melatonin.
You may know of melatonin for its role in helping to pave way for a solid night’s sleep, but did you ever think of it being a potential solution for autistic individuals with insomnia?

Scientists claim that autism has been around for over 1,000 years and has remained consistently as prevalent as it is in today’s work – with 1 in every 166 in the U.S. being born with autism.
However, within the Amish community autism does not exist. Why is this? It looks like the answer to this question leads to a much bigger revelation about the cause of autism itself. Continue reading Why Don’t Amish Children Get Autism?

The study, published in The Lancet Neurology, finds a list of common chemicals are likely contributing to what the researchers are calling the “global, silent pandemic of neurodevelopmental toxicity” in children, reports Forbes.

By 2025, half the kids born in the U.S. will be diagnosed with autism, according to Dr. Stephanie Seneff, Senior Research Scientist at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. She, like many others says autism isn’t just genetic – it is almost surely due to environmental factors. Just a couple of those factors are Monsanto’s RoundUp (glyphosate) and heavy exposure to a cocktail of heavy metals, including aluminum.
