Study Compares Results of Dietary Treatment for Autism

Parent Ratings of Behavioral Effects of Biomedical Interventions
Data on adverse effects and benefits of various diets for autism has been collected by the Autism Research Institute.  More than 25,500 parents filled out reports. The information was gathered from questionnaires designed to collect such information.
