Hear what Dr. Buttar and Robert Scott Bell have to say about this article on the October 30, 2017  Advanced Medicine Show The Interwoven Global Epidemics of Mercury Toxicity and Autism by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. World Mercury Project In nature, toxic metals generally are bound with other elements rather than being present in their pure form. However, with the advent of large-scale industrial processes to extract metals from naturally occurring compounds, humans let the genie out of the bottle, contributing significantly to the distribution of mercury, aluminum and other heavy metals in the...

Neuroscience Helps Explain Severe Infection In Pregnancy Link To Autism

Posted on Nov 22, 2017 in Autism, Chronic Disease

It is known that mothers who come down with severe infections that require hospitalization during pregnancy are at an elevated risk of having a child with autism. Two new studies from MIT and the University of Massachusetts Medical School investigate the phenomenon and pinpoint potential prevention pathways. In research on mice, the researchers discovered that the composition of bacterial populations in the mother’s digestive tract can influence whether maternal infection leads to autistic-like behaviors in offspring. They also discovered the specific brain changes that produce these...

Treating Autism With Cannabis Now Has Scientific Support

Posted on Nov 9, 2017 in Autism

New research suggests that the cannabis-extract cannabidiol could help treat autism. Autism is challenging to treat pharmacologically because there’s no single cause. Autism can be caused by genetic factors, environmental factors (e.g., pesticide exposure) or a combination of both. Depending on the underlying cause, the severity of symptoms ranges across a spectrum, thus leading to the classification of autism as a spectrum disorder. But a recent study suggests that cannabidiol (CBD) could offer relief for people on the spectrum. Here’s why. A Broken Gate Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)...

The Interwoven Global Epidemics of Mercury Toxicity and Autism by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. World Mercury Project In nature, toxic metals generally are bound with other elements rather than being present in their pure form. However, with the advent of large-scale industrial processes to extract metals from naturally occurring compounds, humans let the genie out of the bottle, contributing significantly to the distribution of mercury, aluminum and other heavy metals in the environment. When released from nature’s semi-protective hold, these “invariably toxic” metals wreak havoc on living...

Drinking tea may alter women’s gene expression

Posted on Aug 29, 2017 in Autism, Cancer, Health & Wellness

Hear what Dr. Buttar and Robert Scott Bell have to say about this article on the  June 5, 2017 Medical Rewind Show. It seems that we can’t get enough of tea; statistics show that almost 80 percent of households in the United States drink it. But do you know what this popular beverage does once it passes our lips? New research sheds some light on how tea affects gene expression. Study leader Weronica Ek, of Uppsala University in Sweden, and colleagues found that drinking tea appears to trigger epigenetic changes in women that are associated with cancer and the metabolism of the hormone...
