Brain inflammatory cascade controlled by gut-derived molecules
Metabolite molecules produced by the gut’s microbes activate immune cells in the brain called microglia, which signal to astrocyte cells to mediate responses to inflammation in the central nervous system. https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-018-05113-0

This is a crucial article to understand how autism can start in the gut and affect the brain by causing inflammation there. Vaccines damage gut bacteria. It is also why the author notes ‘Dietary protocols that promote anti-inflammatory regulation could be a promising non-invasive approach to treating brain inflammation.’ This is exactly what parents are doing with their autistic children: reducing brain inflammation by changing the child’s diet.
