New Research Shows Gut Bacteria May contribute To Autism Symptoms

Published on 07/18/19 / In News & Politics

Researchers suspect that a specific set of bacteria that inhabit the gut may be linked to autism. A new study seems to offer some support for what is considered by many in the scientific community to be a controversial idea; the gut-brain link. According to Science Magazine, a new study has revealed that mice develop autismlike behaviors when they are colonized by microbes from the feces of people with autism. While the results of the study don't prove that gut bacteria causes autism, it suggests that, at least in mice, the bacterial makeup of the gut can contribute to some hallmark features of the disorder.
