In the past few decades, prevalence rates of autism have skyrocketed, with recent reports finding that 1 in 86 American children suffer from autism. The cause of autism is poorly understood but clearly has both a genetic and environmental basis. Researchers are scrambling to further their understanding of autism and what causes it. In 2001, Dr. John McGrath suggested vitamin D plays a role in neural development. Six years later, Cannell theorized that vitamin D plays a role specifically in autism. Come learn about his theory and what all the research to date shows on the link between vitamin D and autism.
