Zach Bush, MD, introduces a new paradigm of evidence-based science that has created a grassroots public health movement in the autism community and beyond. This unifying science reveals the link between the devastating changes in the food, farming, and medical industries and our disease epidemics from autism to Alzheimer’s. In this lecture, Dr. Bush introduces the breakthrough science of bacteria, their communication network, and the body's defense systems. The industrial storm of the last 70 years has left the human gut and immune systems vulnerable to injury. Common chemicals in our food and water systems have exploited this vulnerability, resulting in direct damage to the tight junctions that compose the natural firewalls at the gut-blood and blood-brain barriers. The correlations among diet, gut bacteria, and autism have been long recognized. This new science finally delivers the mechanisms behind this relationship. The novel science of bacterial communication is the foundation for a new class of dietary supplements that goes beyond the probiotic, prebiotic, and enzyme eras of gut supplementation. This science offers new avenues for grassroots changes in legistlation and big industry to forge a healthy future for generations to come.
