"The Nature of Things" CBC TV program aired Dec. 8/11

I am a 78 year old grandfather who is trying to make sense of the life of my 20 year old grandson who appears to fit the profile of a person suffering from ADHD.

Last night, the CBC aired a documentary program produced by Dr. David Suzuki titled "Autism Enigma" episode 552 which I believe can be viewed on line.  Autism seems to have some similarities to ADHD.  This program suggested that environmental factors could be a major contributing factor in Autism, specifically, the enzymes given off by certain bacteria that is in our gut having an effect on brain development.  The program is well worth watching and may have some significance to ADHD.  Did any one else happen to watch the documentary?
