So....the news is screamed at me from my inbox;
"Gluten-Autism link doesn't hold up, Review Reveals".
Oh, can't you just hear the gloating from those who think anything that deviates 2 inches from the mainstream medical norm is witchcraft and all supporters should be burned at the stake?
Or shunned with a snooty sniff and lifting of ones nose higher into the air, at the very least.
Let's look at this...
They reviewed studies and found the theory lacking.
They didn't conduct a fail-safe, water-tight, cover-all-bases-and-arses study of their own.
They 'reviewed' all previous ones.
Yep, that's like me 'reviewing' someone's headcolds for the past year - it achieves nothing, offers no new evidence or theories and merely totes up the number of tissues that any roomful of monkeys could arrive at given enough red cordial in their diet.
I go by observation, mother's instinct and commonsense.
My son was found to have no flora in his gut during an extensive study.
He improved on the GF-DF diet.
Now, who's gonna round up these naughty ASD kids who've improved on GF-DF diets and tell 'em to come clean and stop acting all switched on and connected, hmm?
