Special diet doesn't help kids with autism in small study - USA Today

14 subjects seems like an awfully small sample size to base a real study off of. Considering there was a study on autism and celiac disease that showed elevated gliadin antibodies were twice as common in autistic subjects as controls this study really should have looked more at autistic children who specifically had elevated gliadin antibodies.

Since none of the 14 children in this study had any response to the reintroduction of gluten products into their diet the only thing you can actually determine from the study was that the researchers were able to find 14 children without gluten sensitivity.
