Washington, Mar 6 : Actress Jenny McCarthy has urged the U.S. medical community to recognize that diet and vitamins can help ease the symptoms of autism.
McCarthy, whose five-year-old son Evan suffers from the disorder that impairs social interaction and communication, and causes restricted and repetitive behavior, travels around America giving talks about the alleged benefits of natural medicines.
The stunning model wishes that medics would acknowledge healthy diets and vitamins as a way to treat autism.
"I've been speaking to moms across the country who are all shouting out the same thing: 'This (diet and supplement intake) is working'," Contactmusic quoted her, as saying.
"It's so heartbreaking to see the medical community not support something called diet and vitamins. And it pains us, city after city after city. I see this heartbreak on these mom's faces.
"Autism isn't covered by (medical) insurance. If things like diets and supplements are working, then why not support it? These kids are getting better and I will not shut up and will not stop fighting about it," she added.
