A University of Wisconsin-Madison scientist made a significant discovery that could affect children with autism. Study author Dr. Cara Westmark says, changing an autistic child’s diet could decrease the number of seizures they have. In a news release, Westmark’s study found a higher rate of seizures among children with autism who were fed infant formula containing soy protein rather than milk protein.
