Autism researchers finding possible links

Autism researchers finding possible links

A study done by researchers at the University of California shows a possible link between exposure to pesticide during pregnancy and the child’s risk of autism.

According to CNN.com, the study focused on three classes of pesticides: organophosphates, pyrtheroids and carbamates.

About 1/3 of the pregnant women in the study lived within a mile radius of fields applied with pesticides.

If the pesticide was an organophosphate, a pesticide still used commercially, though not so much in home products, then it was found that the women were at a 60 percent higher risk of giving birth to a child with autism, according to TIME.
