I follow “Onward Through the Fog,” a blog on blogspot, authored by Erica Verrillo, a talented person who suffers from ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis). Her reports and research are top notch.
In this particular posting, Erica reports on the similarity of some findings affecting Autism and ME/CFS. These findings have to do with brain inflammation.
A John Hopkins study acts as confirmation that excitotoxicity caused by chronic inflammation is central to autism.
