    @gooner14 Interesting but this is a little misleading because 70% of autism cases still cannot be linked to a genetic cause. This paper is referring to common variations within a small percent of autism cases.

      Thanks for clearing that Rhonda. In one of the podcasts, I think it was in JRE you had mentioned about Autism developing early in utero and about estrogen activating TPH2 gene in the brain in women instead of Vit D. Has there been any development in scientifically proving Vitamin D’s/Estrogen’s role in preventing Autism ? Also, is Part 2 of that paper coming out ? Thanks!

        I hope there will be soon! I have been working hard on paper #2…submitting for publication VERY soon!
