A supplement taken during pregnancy, could protect the baby from developing a certain type of autism. These are excerpts from an article by AT&M Health Science Center on their recent research:
Folic acid has long been touted as an important supplement for women of childbearing age for its ability to prevent defects in the baby’s developing brain and spinal cord. In fact, folic acid is considered so important that it is added as a supplement to breads, pastas, rice and cereals to help ensure that women are exposed to sufficient amounts of this nutrient even before they know they’re pregnant. Soon, another prenatal supplement could protect against a certain type of autism, according to research published today in the journal Cell Reports.
