Autism Spectrum Disorder vitamin study

A clinical trial already is underway, testing the effects of potent vitamin and mineral supplements on children with autism.
A second trial will begin soon to measure the effectiveness of a treatment designed to remove heavy metals, such as mercury, from children's bodies.
Mercury is suspected of being a potential cause of autism which causes social withdrawal and inability to interact with others.
The studies are being done under the supervision of Arizona State University chemistry professor Jim Adams and pediatrician Dr. Sanford Newmark of Tucson.
