METABOLIC BIOMARKERS OF INCREASED OXIDATIVE STRESS AND IMPAIRED METHYLATION CAPACITY IN CHILDREN WITH AUTISM

Autistic children seem to have a reduced ability to defend against oxidative stress–so the bombardment of a genetically susceptible infant with large amounts of mercury could lead to serious adverse effects on the developing nervous system.
