More than two-thirds of the dairy products linked to the development of autism have at least one type of wheat, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported Tuesday.
The top-ranked foods are: oat, barley, rice, millet, barley flour, and wheat germ, which is also known as “wheat germ-meal.”
A third of the top 10 foods include dairy products, which include milk, cheese, yogurt, and ice cream.
The other top 10 are: rice milk, wheat germ milk, millets, barley and barley flour.
“The wheat germ-milk link is the most frequent in the U.S.,” Dr. John Bohler, director of the CDC’s Center for Dairy and Related Health, said in a statement.
“In the U., it’s a major issue, and it has been for a while.
It’s not a very common food.
And it’s the most prevalent one in the country.”
Other high-ranking dairy foods include oat butter, rice milk yogurt, milk, and cheese, which are all linked to a third of cases of autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
A large percentage of the other top-ranking foods are dairy products that are high in protein, such as soy milk and cow’s milk, which account for more than one-third of cases.
