Autism has been a condition mostly feared by parents of new-born babies and infants. A new study has pointed towards some really interesting causes of this typical illness.

The premium symptoms of autism can be traced from certain chemical and metal exposures faced by infected babies during pregnancy or just days after birth. The analysis was the result of a vast study held on a pool of twin babies.

What Does Study Reveal?

According to WebMD, researchers from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City investigated 32 Swedish twins born in 1992 or afterwards. Among them, 17 children were identical pairs and 15 were fraternal twins, either one or both affected by autism.

The study was based on chemical exposures held by these pairs, specifically with lead, zinc, and manganese. The team came up with a surprising revelation, that the decreasing exposure towards these chemicals in infants during the period of pregnancy or after birth timeline may heighten the chance of autism.

Connection Of Autism And Baby Teeth

CLTV further pointed that besides chemical exposures, the non-existence of certain metals may also take the responsibility for the symptoms of autism in twins. The study was evolved on the basis of environmental effects as well.

In the process, the team mainly examined teeth samples of the majority of the upper mentioned pool of twins. Teeth are considered to be one of the most effective and safe means for testing the growth of human body. These carry the traces of environmental measures, as well as traces of chemical effects on the body from time to time.

The team majorly checked over the imprints of varied effects held on the teeth specimens. They came up with the decision that the lack of such chemical compounds can turn out to be an ultimate reason for autism among twin pairs.
