Keywords: Autism spectrum disorder, gut microbiota, environment, diet

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental difference with rising prevalence and no known etiology. This article discusses the mechanism by which the environmental factors suggested to play a role in the emergence of ASD may influence a neurological disorder. The global interest in gut microbiota in the recent years produced research results that reveal how these bacteria are affected by environmental factors and how they can affect the nervous system. The effects of environmental factors and diet on gut microbiota have also begun to emerge in the recent years. In this article, these findings are overviewed and their significance is discussed. This discourse is concluded by proposing combined treatments that target the gut microbiota for individuals with ASD.
