Mitochondrial Dysfunction in Autism

"According to an October 2020 scientific review in the journal Seminars in Pediatric Neurology, 'Several lines of evidence implicate mitochondria in the pathophysiology of autism spectrum disorder (ASD).' For years, autism was believed to be due to genetics, but empirical studies have proven genetic predispositions play a very small role.

More recent investigations looking at mitochondrial biomarkers and electron transport chain activity suggest mitochondrial abnormalities may be involved in as many as 80% of cases."

Note: The article continues to talk about causes (toxicity), and how dietary changes (ketogenic diet) and supplements (CoQ10, L-Carnitine, ALA) *may* be of benefit.
