This article is in my local paper today. This is a copy/paste, can't link it.

LONDON, Ont. — Researchers at Western University have discovered a link between autism and gut bacteria that could lead to screening children and treating them for the disorder before symptoms show.

Western's Dr. Derrick MacFabe and doctors Richard Frye and Stepan Melnyk of the Arkansas Children's Hospital Research Institute made the discovery, which is published online in Translational Psychiatry.

The research found abnormal energy metabolism in a large group of children with autism. The researchers say this arises not from genetic factors, but from certain types of bacteria that are prevalent in the gut of people with autism.

The research shows a link between environmental agents, such as diet or the digestive tract, as potential contributors to some types of autism spectrum disorder. It also helps shape the understanding of how some treatments could help patients with autism or prevent it in infants.

Many people with autism have digestive and metabolic issues but how those relate to the disorder was previously unclear.

    • Ah ... so that's why I've got a sweet tooth! Now I understand! Oddly enough I don't drink, smoke, do drugs or eat fast food either (although I did have a Gourmet Kitchen Burger the other day - did you know they did gluten-free? It was amazing!) So before I leave the doughnut question behind I'd just like to say, if a food manufacturer is reading this, please take note - there is a hole in the UK Doughnut market.   
    • Ah to hell with it. Most of the time these days I'm super good. I have so few vices now. I don't drink, smoke, explore the cosmic depths within my soul via chemical enhancements or eat fast food.  God I'm boring. The way I look at it the odd frozen gateaux or cheesecake is owed to me for all this forbearance. Besides we have an excuse for slipping below the standards of our American cousins. We sent all the puritans across the pond on the Mayflower leaving our island stuffed with hedonists and gluttons. Can we really be blamed for the odd sugary overindulgence? Living on an island of perpetual rain whilst they sun themselves in Florida or California? I think not!     
    • That's such a great idea. I'm all for buying locally. I only thought I might find a nut tree in a forest or something, lol. Like you do. But I'll search online for local farms that might have some, or ask at the local markets. That sounds kind of fun & could lead to finding other local stuff that maybe I could eat. Thanks!
    • That's a cute way of upping her iron intake   You can get a similar affect by cooking with cast iron pots: http://universityhealthnews.com/daily/energy/use-cast-iron-cookware-as-an-iron-deficiency-treatment/  so you could look for a couple of those if the fish ever swims off  
    • Welcome Betty Yes! I could pretty much have written your post myself.  I know exactly how you feel and how little the thought of going back on gluten appeals now you're feeling so much better. You have a tough decision to take. There's a forum faq stickied above and I tried to collect some answers and useful links awhile ago in this thread:  Hopefully they are of some help If its any consolation, many of the people here did exactly the same as you in removing gluten, realising it had a big effect then finding out that they should've been tested beforehand. I did it and managed 8 weeks of a challenge before testing negative for coeliac. I tell you this because you should know that even if you test negative it could be worth removing gluten from your diet as there are some that test negative but still react to gluten. Whether you choose to test or not, you've found a great site here and there's lots of good information and support available. Everyone here understands just how lifechanging your discover is to you and how bittersweet the realisation can be too.  Best of luck to you!
