Fish Oil and the Treatment for Autism
by Michael Byrd
real world to the best of their abilities if possible. If not, then often these children,
once adults, would end up in assisted living and adult care facilities.

Fortunately, with the advent of a variety of new research arenas in the area of
autism and other developmental conditions, this no longer has to be the case. And,
not surprisingly, omega 3 fatty acids are playing a major role in this groundbreaking
research. Omega 3 fatty acids are found in fish oil, and they are vital to your body's
daily functions. However, it is nearly impossible to get the amounts of omega 3 that
your body needs on a daily basis from diet (even healthy diet) alone, which means
that nearly the entire population is operating on some level of omega 3 deficiency.

While for most people, this deficiency may manifest itself as a lack of focus,
unnecessary levels of stress or, later in life, coronary complications, for people with
developmental issues, this shortage of omega 3 can make life much more difficult
than it should be. As a result, adding an appropriate amount of omega 3 to an
autistic child's diet can actually work wonders on behavior and practical life. Studies
indicate that the addition of omega 3 to autistic children's diets can result in improved
sleep, better cognition, hardier health, and even a dramatic increase in eye contact,

the World Health Organization or representatives from the American College of

If you are at all familiar with autism,
then you are probably aware of the
recent movement, popularized in the
press by celebrities such as Jenny
McCarthy, that believes that autism,
a brain development disorder that
can interfere with and even prevent
many types of social interactions and
communications as well as making
traditional learning difficult, can in fact
be treated and cured. Previously,
most experts had believed that
autism was largely incurable, and that
the best-case scenario would be for
parents of autistic children to simply
treat those children to cope in the
