Possible Cause of Autism

I thought this was interesting..

FROM NBC: Some commonly-prescribed medications for pregnant women might increase the risk for autism-related disorders in children. The drugs are called "Beta 2 Adreneric Agonists. They are used to help control asthma in pregnant women or to stop pre-term labor.

Researchers from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine say there is evidence the drugs could increase the incidence of autism-spectrum disorders, cognitive problems or poor school performance in developing fetuses.

Researchers say more studies are needed to confirm the findings.. but that doctors may want to consider alternative drugs for treating pregnant women.
