The most recent studies in the field of autism, are indicative, of the rate increases exponentially, in relation to the likelihood of the appearance of the disease in the population. In a toxicological context, it is amazing how some substances affect the evolution and the development of the human brain. If we were to initially examine the data available in the USA, we observe that, as far as the autistic spectrum is regarded, we had one child in 5000 with the disease in 1975, one in 2500 in 1985, one in 500 in 1995 and then, thereon, successive rates of, 1/250, 1/166, 1/150, 1/110, 1/88, to reach in 2014 the persentage of 1/68. In this spectrum we locate collectively, the deep autism, and the syndromes of ReH and Asperger. In conclusion, in America we find that, 40% of the children have an IQ below 70, while the normal rate is 100. The problem is that this deterioration of the IQ is also due to environmental conditions. One of the dominant one's is the presence of heavy metals in the human body due to pollutants. Autism is not a hereditary disease, but it's a clear example of the environmental pressure upon people. It is therefore important to confront at least the heavy metals, and in this context the zeolite can help practically, since as we know it binds them and acts as a natural detoxifier. The clinoptilolite has the following selectivity when it is in an environment with the following elements: Cs> Pb> NH4> Na> Sr> Cd, Cu, Zn. As we know, lead is one of the most toxic substances that irritate the human being. Consequently, we have an effective tool, which in the future could emerge scientifically, as even a treatment regarding the occurrence of autism in problematic areas, where the environment causes health problems.
