– Researchers are examining baby teeth to see what nutrients or chemicals they have been exposed to.

– Baby teeth form in the womb, their growth layers can be studied like tree rings.

– Researchers have identified differences in levels of zinc and copper in the baby teeth of children with and without autism.
