The dramatic increase in the prevalence of autism within the past decade has been accompanied by an abundance of new research and treatment strategies.
Pregnant Moms’ Flu Linked to Higher Risk of Autism Among Children
According to the latest research on flu vaccination during pregnancy, following current recommendations for influenza shots may help to lower rates of autism.
Father’s Age Is Linked to Risk of Autism and Schizophrenia
Older men are more likely than young ones to father a child who develops autism or schizophrenia, because of random mutations that become more numerous with advancing paternal age, scientists reported on Wednesday, in the first study to quantify the effect as it builds each year. The age of mothers had no bearing on the risk for these disorders, the study found.
Experts said that the finding was hardly reason to forgo fatherhood later in life, though it may have some influence on reproductive decisions. The overall risk to a man in his 40s or older is in the range of 2 percent, at most, and there are other contributing biological factors that are entirely unknown.
Behaviour therapy normalizes brain of autistic children
Autism likely has deep genetic roots, but the latest research provides hope that some learning techniques can lessen symptoms of the developmental disorder.
Autism and Air Pollution: The Link Grows Stronger
Children with autism are two to three times more likely than other children to have been exposed to car exhaust, smog, and other air pollutants during their earliest days, according to a new study.
Polluted Air Linked to Autism Risk
Pregnant women who live in smog-filled areas may be twice as likely to have children with autism, a new study suggests.
Exposure to diesel particulates, lead, manganese, mercury, methylene chloride and other pollutants are known to affect brain function and have influence of the development of the baby.
The study was a long-term study starting 1989 at Brigham and Woman's Hospital, 116,430 nurses where involved.
22,000 woman who had a child without the disorder and 325 who had a autism child were studied.

Some with Autism Diagnosis, recover completely
Doctors have long believed that disabling autistic disorders last a lifetime, but a new study has found that some children who exhibit signature symptoms of the disorder recover completely.
The study, posted online on Wednesday by the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry, is the largest to date of such extraordinary cases and is likely to alter the way that scientists and parents think and talk about autism, experts said.
comment from Dr. E.Blaurock-Busch PhD:
One possible reason: children can outgrow metal intoxication, provided they have a good detoxification system and are in an environment preventing excess exposure. Let us assume a child was born with a heavy metal burden. It has a strong metabolism and its genetic detoxification system is functioning. If that child is shielded from additional exposure, its body can excrete more toxins than it takes in. Hence, the toxic burden will be reduced over time and brain function can improve to normal. We do see a similar pattern with patients who have diminished natural detoxification abilities. When they receive detoxification treatments, they gradually improve.. It may take years to detoxify the body, but recuperation is possible. I have it seen.Since research now indicates that 40% of Autism is caused by environmental toxins, we can logically assume that nearly 40% of the cases can be improved, if not reversed - after the cause of the problem is removed.
Induced Labor Linked to Higher Autism Risk
Artificially stimulating labor is associated with a slightly higher risk of autism, but researchers caution that the link may be complicated.
In a study published in the journal JAMA Pediatrics, women who needed to jump-start their labor or artificially speed up delivery were up to 23% more likely to have children diagnosed with autism than those who didn’t avail themselves of these methods.
