Research suggests that clinical endocannabinoid deficiency could be implicated in autism pathophysiology.

Could vitamin D deficiency and low levels of endocannabinoid activity indicate autoimmune (GcMAF) dysregulation in autism?

These viruses sabotage the immune system by sending out nagalase to prevent the production of the childís GcMAF, and therefore become chronic.

Is MMR vaccines (inactivated viruses) causing chronic GcMAF (vitamin D binding protein) deficiency in autism spectrum disorder?

can we cure autism if it was detected in an earlier stage?

#1. The hypothesis that MMR vaccination caused autism has been conclusively disproven (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MMR_vaccine_controversy).

#2. GcMAF (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GcMAF#Controversies) is one of many fake treatments for autism (http://www.fda.gov/ForConsumers/ConsumerUpdates/ucm394757.htm).

Research suggests that clinical endocannabinoid deficiency could be implicated in autism pathophysiology.

Yet again tkadm30 shoe-horns cannabis into a thread in this forum (https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=tkadm30++cannabis+site:thenakedscientists.com).
[ If you are tkadm30 the cannabis grower (https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=tkadm30+cannabis+site:http://www.mrnice.nl) that would explain why you constantly push dope ].

I don't see GcMAF being listed as a fake treatments for autism on that fda.gov website.

Pushing dope? You must be kidding... The ones who push dope the most are the ones selling prescription drugs and antipsychotics. [:P]

You've done little else other than push cannabis in this forum. (https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=tkadm30++cannabis+site:thenakedscientists.com)

Over 900 children have now trialled GcMAF around the world, and clinics are reporting a response rate of over 80% in reducing the symptoms of autism.

The causes of autism are far from clear, probably involving genetic and environmental causes, as well as greater community awareness that leads to higher levels of diagnosis (school teachers identify certain children as being "on the (autism) spectrum").

I heard of one paper that linked autism to infection during pregnancy...  yet another avenue to investigate...

If Big Pharma is murdering their competitors, (and staging it as suicide), why do they wait until the aforementioned quacks are facing bankruptcy and/or jail-time for their frauds ?...

Quote from: scienceblogs.com
... the day before [Bradstreet] apparently killed himself, his office was the target of a federal search warrant ...
http://scienceblogs.com/insolence/2015/07/17/gcmaf-autism-and-the-apparent-suicide-of-an-autism-quack/

If Big Pharma viewed them as competitors, and was willing to assassinate them, the logical thing would be to kill them at the earliest opportunity, rather than "fake their suicide" when the quack's career was near its natural end.

Again your conspiracy-theory does not bear any analysis : such beliefs are only promulgated by the paranoid*,  [ *drug-induced (https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=cannabis+paranoia), or otherwise (https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=schizotypal+paranoia) ].

There is a clear 4:1 gender ratio in autism (https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=4:1+gender+ratio+autism+genetic+) , that is explicable via genetics alone.

A big autism conference is taking place in Baltimore in May 2016.

Endocannabinoid signaling and vitamin D binding protein are important factors in autism pathology.

Is it reasonable to give antipsychotics medication as a autism treatment?
