The article I shared today names quite a few institutes in Bangalore. BMI is one more place you can consider.

This study from Keele University, Staffordshire & Kings College Hospital, London was published in the Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology (March 2018) issue.

Aluminium in brain tissue in autism

...we have used transversely heated graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry to measure, for the first time, the aluminium content of brain tissue from donors with a diagnosis of autism. We have also used an aluminium-selective fluor to identify aluminium in brain tissue using fluorescence microscopy. The aluminium content of brain tissue in autism was consistently high...

...Animal models of ASD continue to support a connection with aluminium and to aluminium adjuvants used in human vaccinations in particular. Hitherto there are no previous reports of aluminium in brain tissue from donors who died with a diagnosis of ASD. We have measured aluminium in brain tissue in autism and identified the location of aluminium in these tissues...
Though the sample size of the study might be a bit limited (10 donors), it raises and answers (?) some questions nevertheless.

Link to full text of the study.

Today is World Autism Awareness day, hence bumping this thread so that new forum members can read some excellent posts on the topic by Samurai and others.

Also sharing this article which lists some organisations in India that do work in this area: https://yourstory.com/socialstory/20...ion-gbw039jmqw

Thank you.

One of our children has autism. Unfortunately it was only diagnosed a few years ago. He is already in his early thirties. It has hampered him considerable in his life.

Now with the correct diagnosis and expert help we are a little bit more hopeful that we can find ways to improve his life. It has been very frustrating, for us, but of course more so for our son all those years.

Autism comes in many shapes and formats of course. But I feel for all those individuals and their family and friends. No matter what it is never easy and it is something that does require constant attention.

The DPNA Code is an airline practice that could help lessen the stress of air travel for autistic children and their parents. Have posted more details in the International Air Travel thread. Hope it would be of some use to the needy.
