Hear what Dr. Buttar and Robert Scott Bell have to say about this article on the November 12, 2018 Advanced Medicine Show (click link above to listen to the show) The emergence of autism in children has not only been linked to genes encoding synaptic proteins—among others—but also environmental insults such as zinc deficiency. Although it is unclear whether zinc deficiency contributes to autism, scientists have now defined in detail a possible mechanistic link. Their research shows how zinc shapes the connections or ‘synapses’ between brain cells that form during early...

But that’s not the whole story. Genetics and epigenetics – changes in gene expression – also play an important role. We are starting to see an increase in Type 2 diabetes in leaner people at a much younger age than usually associated with the disease. This means in addition to focusing on good diet and exercise, we need...
