Tourette's syndrome -tic's and compulsive behaviors

In my study of copper and its symptom of compulsive behaviors I discovered the disease called Tourette's syndrome.

1. Quote "Many patients with Tourette's syndrome have comorbid neuropsychiatric conditions, such as attention-deficit/ hyperactivity disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder or learning disabilities." http://www.aafp.org/afp/990415ap/2263.html

2. These are similar symptoms to copper toxicity. See our Copper page

3."...High blood lead level and zinc and iron deficiencies may be one of the causes of TD, and thus should be considered during therapy." http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23965880

4."...Ten of a total of 80 patients were found to have an abnormally low serum copper." http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3475133 (Note it appears that low or high levels of copper may cause Tourette's syndrome.)
