Autism - recovery
Q: There has been a lot of controversy about mercury contamination causing autism in children especially through vaccine. What is your opinion? In the US the link between mercury contamination and autism in children has been established. Is any research being conducted in India? I am a grandparent of a child who was branded as autistic, but with treatment and Indian system of medicine, the child has been cured and is in the main stream of a reputed school. All the symptoms found in the child earlier have completely disappeared.
A:I do not know whether there is a link between mercury contamination and Autism. I am impressed by your child's autism having been treated by the Indian Medicine system. I think this needs publicity. May be you could write about it in the popular press or have a journalist you know, write it up. The latest INDIA TODAY has a brief article about autism and the names of some experts dealing with it in Delhi. You might wish to contact them directly.
