What Causes Autism?

April 18, 2012

Martha Herbert argues that diet and environmental toxins play a significant role in creating autism in an interview with Anne Strainchamps on To the Best Of Our Knowledge.

Herbert is the author of The Autism Revolution, and her website also hosts her scientific publications.
