Autism symptoms can be reduced 50% in children with fecal transplants

Fecal transplants drastically reduced autism symptoms in children, according to new research.

Symptoms almost halved in 18 children given the treatment - known medically as microbiota transfer therapy.

The study builds on the theory that the neurological condition may be rooted in the gut, rather than the brain.

Two years after the transplant, children saw a roughly 45% drop in issues with language, social interaction and behavior.
