Lutein Free Diet
Posted 26 September 2012 - 06:38 AM
I've noticed that over the years, I've always felt queasy after eating carrots. From what I've read carrots are high in lutein type substances.
Lutein sensitivity sounds like it's common in ASD. I've only just heard about this issue myself and it seems like it may just fit the bill.
What are your thoughts?

I would ask you for your reputable source for this "I have heard" info but, this isn't an autism site, so most of us don't follow the research.

There isn't really any actual scientific evidence that *-free diets are useful in reducing the symptoms of autism anyway, and this is certainly the most extreme iteration of that trend I've seen. The evidence is all anecdotal and doesn't bear out when you do actual placebo-controlled research. In most cases, it doesn't hurt, but it certainly is going to hurt if you try to eliminate so essential a nutrient from your diet.
