Study Claims Folic Acid’s Positive Link in Reducing Autism Risks
A new study is talking about the benefits of folic acid to the health of the new born babies, if it is consumed by the mothers in their early pregnancy.
Above are the findings of a research that was recently carried out by Norwegian researchers upon 85,176 children to learn the effects of folic acid upon their health. Researchers noticed that the mothers, who took folic acid supplements in their early pregnancy, were at 40% lesser risks of giving birth to children with autistic disorders.
The findings were published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
Researchers have concluded in their findings of the study that only one in 1,000 mothers who took folic acid supplements in their early pregnancy, was noticed to have a child with an autistic spectrum disorder as compared to the group of mothers who didn't have any folic acid and reported to have about two mothers in 1,000 mothers with autism affected babies.
But yes, above are only the claims that have been made by the authors of the study and they still have to conclusively prove that folic acid is behind the risk reduction. Further research is ongoing to know the related facts.
