Testing for Neuro-Toxicity
Muscle (or reactive leg length) testing
Laboratory blood analysis
** A recent study (reported in the August 2003 International Journal of Toxicity) compared mercury levels in first cut hair of normal children with and children diagnosed with autism. To the researchers surprise it found that autistic children had a significantly lower level of mercury in their hair than did normal children. This indicates that in autism the body may be unable to excrete mercury that is stored in levels deeper than hair cells, such as brain tissue, and therefore does not show up in the hair. In this study normal and autistic children had similar exposures to mercury, which included maternal diet and vaccinations. See study details
