Intestinal Permeability, Toxic Metals, Autism

"The researchers said the reason for the higher burden of toxic metals among children with autism may stem from increased exposure to the toxic metals, increased absorptions as a result of intestinal permeability or decreased ability to excrete the toxic metals.

'We hypothesize that reducing early exposure to toxic metals may help prevent or ameliorate autism, and treatment to remove toxic metals may reduce symptoms of autism,' they wrote."
