Autism Oddities

  Sulforaphane, derived from broccoli sprouts, reduces behavioral disturbances...described by Leo Kanner, MD 70 years ago.... in patients with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). Sulforaphane boosts the bodies natural defenses against oxidative stress, inflammation, and DNA damage as well improving the bodies heat-shock response, processes used to protect cells from stress caused by high temperatures....including fever.
  Half of parents with ADSs affected children report their autistic behavior improves noticeably when they have a fever.
