Over 500,000 people in the U.S. have been diagnosed with some form of autism.
Studies have shown that the inability to break down certain foods may affect neurological processes in some children, causing autistic behavior.
The proteins found in wheat, rye, oats, barley and dairy products (Gluten and Casein) are not completely broken down in some autistic children.

A Urinary Peptide Test can detect any protein that is not fully broken down and digested.
Contact your physician or health professional to have this simple, yet conclusive test done.
