A Balance Amount of Folic Acid to Lower the Risk of Autism

Autism is a disorder that refers to a range of conditions, combined with various neurological and physical disabilities. It creates problem in repetitive behaviour, speech, understanding and nonverbal communication of the child. A research has proven that the children whose mothers had taken 800 or more micrograms of folic acid, has comparatively lower risk of developing Autism. It is also important that mother should be away of pesticides and polluted area to avoid the disease in child. Mothers who took folic acid and were not exposed to pesticides during pregnancy then there had been lesser chance of developing Autism in the child. It is found by a research that being exposed to pesticides and having a lower level of folic acid at the time of conception of foetus invites autism in child. Folic acid helps in recreation of body cells that is essential to fight with autism. It also helps in DNA formation and repair. Autistic children always face trouble in performing their regular activities and communicating with others unlike normal children. This can be avoided by applying some regular precaution and by consuming a regular quantity of folic acid before and during pregnancy; however, it is not a 100% cure. High doses of folic acid helps improve brain function by overcoming the blockade and restoring normal foliate levels inside brain cells that minimizes the risk of autism.
