Upcoming Film

The Autism Enigma

  • Thursday, April 16, 2015
  • 12:00 noon CT
  • ACB 240

Autism is the fastest rising developmental disorder in the industrialized world. With an astounding 600% increase in the disorder in the last
20 years, scientists are still grappling with its cause. Research has been frustratingly inconclusive, but the emerging theme is that autism
is triggered by environment, not heredity, and that our toxic lifestyle is now proving too much for children to bear.

Now, with a new understanding of how gut bacteria can affect the brain, researchers have begun to focus their attention on an unexpected
place. The Autism Enigma looks at the progress of an international group of scientists examining the gut’s amazingly diverse, and powerful
microbial ecosystem for clues to the baffling disorder, and the extraordinary efforts of parents who have been relentlessly pushing science
forward in hopes of finding answers for their children’s condition.

April is National Autism Awareness Month. This film was selected to raise awareness about autism and issues within the autism community.
