Study links fevers to babies born with autism
DAVIS, Calif. (KGO) -- A new study by UC Davis researchers is revealing important information for pregnant women and their health.
The study found that mothers who had fevers during their pregnancies were more than twice as likely to have a child with autism or a developmental delay than mothers who controlled their temperatures with medication or mothers who didn't have a fever at all.
The study, published in the Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, is believed to be the first of its kind.
