HI Everyone

 

The videos of the recent Boston Defeat Autism Now conference are on the web. The address is

Bostan DAN videos

 

I haven't looked at any myself yet, (need kids to be in bed so I can "concentrate") but the list of topics looks quite interesting. I am keen to read about latest research on omega 3 fatty acids etc.

 

Methylation really seems to be a big thing in DAN at the moment.

Methylation is one of the detox pathways in the liver, and yes, there is speculation that it is "fixed" from birth, eg, you have a natural disposition to having trouble with enzymatic reactions that cause blocks in these pathways, but certain nutrients do help. They are finding in autism that methyl b12 makes a huge difference.

 

Cant find it now, but there is a great research paper by Jill James about oxidative stress and methylation in Autism.

 

There is also lots of specualtion that mercury and other polutants upset the bodies ability to methylate.

 

Last night I listened to Dr Bocks talk from DAn and he said so many troubles are caused by imbalanced methylation, including an inability to methylatte neurotransmitters. They need to by methylated to be recycled, hence without being able to recycle then, you end up with overloads of certain ones, like dopamine etc. In his talk he kept referring to Jill James and Richard Deth as being the experts on this stuff, so next i plan to listen to them.
