What mineral and vitamin supplement helps reduce autism?

What mineral and vitamin supplement helps reduce autism?

Wish that were so...: Although the internet abounds with stories of children with autism improving with certain vitamins, dietary supplements, and special diets, there is not evidence that any of these treatments help most children with autism.

Stories about improvement after starting a treatment appear to be compelling. However there is a lot of hidden bias in such stories.

Has it been looked into if an abundance of vitamin K in the blood causes autism? I know the study was of a deficiency of the vitamin. Thank you.

Has it been looked into if an abundance of vitamin K in the blood causes autism? I know the study was of a deficiency of the vitamin.  Thank you.

How to say this...: I'm glad you asked the question here.

Can vitamin B2 cause a false positive on a drug test?

Can vitamin B2 cause a false positive on a drug test?

No: I thought this was a strange question, but in researching it found out that this is claimed on some websites. However, I am quite certain that b2 does not cause a false positive on drug tests. It can make your urine bright yellow & some who drink a lot of fluids to dilute their urine before a test will sometimes take b2 so the urine looks yellow rather than clear.
