It is believed that at least 20% of autistic children may have Lyme Disease. Lyme disease is caused by a bacteria which has at least 37 known species and an unknown number of genomic strains. It is typically transmitted by a tick bite, but has been found in breast milk, semen, mosquitos, fleas, and can be passed from mother to a child in utero, which can greatly suppress the immune system. New research indicates that it can be passed through sexual intercourse, so it is now being considered as an STD. Someone can have Lyme Disease without any symptoms, but typical symptoms include flu-like symptoms or a rash, which can occur weeks after contraction. Lyme disease is treated with antibiotic therapy. Unfortunately, Lyme is often missed by traditional testing due to the number of unknown strains.
