Episode 51 “Tylenol and Autism”


A new study was has caused quite a stir in the national news and on social media reporting an association between taking Tyelnol while pregnant and having a child with Autsim and/or ADHD. While there have been numerous studies linking exposure to chemicals and common medication to children with Autism, not many can conclude a direct cause and effect. This new study appears to be another one where the data is suggestive and correlative, back has some serious limitations to what it actually means.

Given the attention this paper has been receiving, I wanted to breakdown the conclusions and talk about what the data actually means, and how it relates to the field of Autism and ADHD. Join me for episode 51 and I look forward to your feedback and comments.
