MicroRNA-mediated DDT-autism link

First biomarker evidence of DDT-autism link

…they point to androgen receptor binding, a process key to neurodevelopment. A study in rats found DDE inhibits androgen receptor binding, an outcome also seen in a rat model of autism.

These chemicals are transferred across the placenta in concentrations greater than those seen in the mother’s blood.

“Unfortunately, they are still present in the environment and are in our blood and tissues. In , they are passed along to the developing fetus. Along with genetic and other environmental factors, our findings suggest that prenatal exposure to the DDT toxin may be a trigger for autism.”

Androgen receptor binding is food energy-dependent and microRNA-mediated. The light-activated food energy-dependent creation of microRNAs typically prevents the degradation of messenger RNA, which all serious scientists have linked from mutations to all pathology. The link from fewer energy-dependent microRNAs to autism is the same as the link from DDT to autism.
