Autistic kids are poor detoxifiers of heavy metals, and have gut problems. We don’t need the exact cause, to be able to say, “OK, let’s not do anything different until we nailed it down for sure!” No, we have enough information to use the precautionary principle and eliminate glyphosate from our diets.
Edit — hat tip to Takizakura123 for this youtube about the causes and maybe a cure for autism:
Wouldn’t it be funny if the natural healing world fixed autism, while science* dithered and said, “Well, we don’t know that this is the actual cause, so to hell with the precautionary principle, the world would starve without glyphosate.”
“Glyphosate acts as a carrier or a vector of these heavy metals to the kidney,” said Dr Jayasumana, the study’s principal author.(8) You can read an interview with the author(9) to find out how he proved the link between the world’s number one selling herbicide known as Roundup® (Glyphosate) and a series of mysterious epidemics of fatal chronic kidney disease of unknown origin (CKDu) affecting several poor farming regions around the world. Eleven countries on three continents are affected by CKDu. This includes sugar cane workers in Central America and Louisiana where glyphosate, sprayed by air 6 weeks before harvest, is used to ripen the sugar cane.(10) The aerial spraying of glyphosate could also explain the mass extinction of amphibians across Central America from chytrid fungus.(11)

ABSTRACT This study examined the difference between sulfhydryl-reactive metals (mercury, lead, arsenic, and cadmium) in the hair of 45 children with autism (1-6 yr of age) as compared to 45 gender-, age-, and race-matched typical children. Hair samples were measured with inductively coupled mass spectrometry. Some studies, such as Holmes et al. (2003), suggested that children with autism may be poor detoxifiers relative to normally developing children. Metals that are not eliminated sequester in the brain. Our study found that arsenic, cadmium, and lead were significantly lower in the hair of children with autism than in matched controls. Mercury was in the same direction (lower in autism) following the same pattern, but did not achieve statistical significance. The evidence from our study supports the notion that children with autism may have trouble excreting these metals, resulting in a higher body burden that may contribute to symptoms of autism.
