Submission + - No link found between mercury levels and autism

Mr. Icon writes: "Researchers at the Montreal Children's Hospital of the McGill University Health Center have revealed new evidence dispelling the supposed link between mercury and autism. The research team, led by Dr. Eric Fombonne, tested mercury levels in the hair and blood samples from autistic children and their mothers and found that the levels did not differ statistically from those samples taken from non-autistic children. They also demonstrated that there was no correlation between the mercury level and the severity of symptoms and level of functioning of autistic children."
