iodine deficiency, autism

"New research shows a troubling correlation between a woman’s thyroid function and her child’s risk for autism. This video talks about a study showing that when “mothers had very low levels of thyroid hormone early in pregnancy the chance of having a kid with autism was multiplied by 4 very seldom we see these strength of association."

"the mechanism of iodine
deficiency is that insufficient levels of Iodine lead to an imbalance in
thyroid hormone metabolism with a decrease in circulating thyroxin (T4) in
both the pregnant mother and the fetus. This results in irreversible
changes in brain architecture such as less dense neural connections.(6) It
has been reported that some children with autism have “underconnectivity”
in certain regions of the brain.(7)

In conclusion, there are similarities between the effects of iodine
deficiency on the brain of the developing fetus and the pattern of brain
dysfunction seen in some children with autism. We believe that there is
evidence to support the theory that some of the reported increase in
reported autism might be attributed to Iodine deficiency, and that this
warrants further investigation"
