Sulphation and Autism: What are the links?

The evidence so far is incomplete but is certainly in accordance with the view that while defects in sulphation may not be the prime cause of autism, they are responsible for much of the dysregulation of biochemical and physiological processes. Perhaps the full answer may lie somewhere in the complex interactions of the autoimmune system with neuronal development. Autism may then reflect either in utero damage from maternal cytokines or perinatal damage caused by the actions of infections and vaccinations on a child with faulty autoimmune responses.
