Substance in Broccoli Improves Autism Symptoms: Study


A dose of a chemical found in broccoli and other vegetables may improve the behavioral and social symptoms of autism in young men, according to a new small study.

But people would have to eat a possibly unrealistic amount of broccoli and other vegetables to reach the dose of the molecule - known as sulphoraphane - used in the new study, the lead researcher told Reuters Health.

The story is too old to be commented.

Please note: This is for people who really have autism. Not for your uncontrollable brat that you claim has autism because you didn't raise the child right.
