JACKSON, N.J., Nov. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- During its research into the application of neuroscience in business, a New Jersey based think tank, The Center for Modeling Optimal Outcomes®, LLC (The Center) made an inadvertent and amazing discovery.
The Center examined the neuroscientific dynamics of logic and emotion in decision making while researching neuroscience in business. They found unique corollary relationships between various brain chemicals (neurohormones, neurotransmitters, etc.). This apparent pattern led to a new path of research for the team outside of business.
Through the application of their model, it became apparent that autism is an outcome of several variables that, when the homeostatic relationship of each one is disrupted, a "perfect storm" scenario results in autism. The application of the model identified several of the variables that account for why boys have a 4 to 1 ratio of instances over girls as well as why not every boy is affected.
While the scientific community will have to validate The Center's findings, the model for assessing homeostatic relationships indicates the "trigger" behind autism is an imbalance between a pair of amino acid neurotransmitters; glutamate and glycine.
Autism was one of most difficult illnesses The Center had attempted to analyze. If it hadn't been for so many parents insisting that vaccines were responsible for the condition, we might never have found the fact that the stabilizer in MMR and a few other vaccines is hydrolyzed gelatin; a substance that is approximately 21% glycine. It appears that, based on readily verifiable science, the use of that form of glycine triggers an imbalance between the amino acid neurotransmitters responsible for the absorption rate of certain classes of cells throughout the body.

If that's the case, it's not inherent to vaccines, but to the food supply itself, it's a very common food product.
I'm not sure, this sounds reminiscent to the dihydrogen monoxide campaign, almost.

Hydrolyzed gelatin is also known as hydrolyzed collagen protein or HCP. It is derived from the building blocks of connective tissue. Hydrolyzed gelatin has been broken down by enzymes so that it can be more easily digested when used in dietary supplements and foods. It is easier for the body to absorb the amino acid components of proteins that have already been broken down (hydrolyzed). As a supplement, hydrolyzed gelatin is used to strengthen connective tissue and bones, and it may help heal cartilage and bone injuries as well.
Further, hydrolyzed gelatin can help athletes avoid mishaps like sprains and tendonitis that occur when joints are overused. Some supplement retailers suggest it may encourage the body to burn fats rather than proteins or carbohydrates for energy from food, thereby facilitating weight loss. Furthermore they say, hydrolyzed gelatin is said to help maintain lean muscle mass, which also promotes weight loss. There is no evidence any of this is true (one product making such claims -- Body Solutions -- was sued by the FTC for making false and unsubstantiated claims).
Hydrolyzed gelatin is an incomplete protein. However, it is one of the best sources of the amino acids (protein building blocks) that comprise collagen. These are glycine, proline, hydroxyproline, lysine and hydroxylysine. Hydrolyzed gelatin is therefore believed to be an excellent source of concentrated nourishment for bones, joints, tendons, ligaments, cartilage and skin.
