Abnormal Gut Flora and Autism

"According to the Toronto Star, recent evidence suggests that the abnormal bacteria present in the guts of children with autism spectrum disorder produce a waste product that affects the organs and ultimately the behavioral problems that characterize the condition - meaning that the gut bacteria could provide a link to the digestive, immune and metabolic problems that occur in some children with autism spectrum disorder. In addition, the abnormalities were not hereditary, but came from environmental causes."
