AUTISM WARNING: Pregnant women who take antidepressants found to have 81% higher chance of autistic children
(Natural News) Taking antidepressants before and during pregnancy may raise the odds of autism spectrum disorder in children, a recent review showed. The study found that children born to mothers who took antidepressants during pregnancy had an 81% increased odds of developing autism. The researchers also found that children born to women who took antidepressants before pregnancy had a 77% likelihood of developing autism. As part of the analysis, French researchers examined six studies with a total cohort population of 117,737 participants and compared them with people without autism.
