Alright, what was done in research by Arizona State University for Autism, and thus proving by statistics that autism is caused by heavy metals in the body, the same sort of research needs to be done for Schizophrenia, Parkinsons, Prion, Depression, and Alzheimers.

I do not know if Alzheimers, Parkinsons, Schizophrenia, Prion and Depression have levels of severity. I would think Alzheimers, Parkinsons and Prion have progressive stages of the disease where it continually gets worse as the plaques build up or Parkinsons tremors increase, but I would suspect the heavy metal build-up is not increasing.
So in the case of Alzheimers Parkinsons and Prion, there maybe a accumulative load of heavy metal that starts the onset and the disease then feeds on that load. Now I do remember a report in England in the 1990s where a group of people contracted an accelerated form of CJD, a prion disease, and where all had one thing in common, eating at a restaurant. That sounds like a classic case of getting too much mercury or other heavy metals. I do not suppose autopsies can be run on those individuals to see if they had excess mercury in their bodies.
A research into how much heavy metals in Schizophrenia and in Depression patients needs to be carried out.
So it looks as though ASU has started some big, good, and new science research in medicine, and now we need to expand it from just Autism to that of these other diseases-- Alzheimers, Parkinsons, Schizophrenia, Prion, Depression.
Now I wonder if Depression comes in severity levels?
And I wonder from the map in Wikipedia on Schizophrenia having the highest rates in Asia showing 273 to 295 cases per 100,000 while the USA and Canada have just 197 per 100,000, whether Schizophrenia has a high quantity of heavy metal and whether that is due to the higher rates of cigarette smoking in Asia. So it looks as though what ASU has started in measuring metals in the bodies of disease patients, needs to be extended to a broader class of diseases-- all of them brain diseases.
And we should not stop with human disease of heavy metal, but notice that bees have what is called "Colony Collapse Disorder", with something gone wrong with the bee's mind in orientation which sounds like mercury. So can someone do a research as to the heavy metal load in bees suffering from CCD?
Also, many whales and other sea creatures get disoriented and beach themselves. And here again we need a research study to see if it is caused by heavy metals.
And also, the Mad Cow Disease, the prion disease is highly likely to be a mercury causing disease and we need to run the same tests on MCD as Arizona State University ran on Autism. --
