Possible link between Tylenol during pregnancy and autism, ADHD in kids, study finds

Quote:
A new study out of Spain has uncovered what it calls a potential link between pregnant women using the drug acetaminophen — which many people know by the brand name Tylenol — and then their child developing autism or attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Researchers from the University of Barcelona studied health data from more than 73,000 mother-child pairs across Europe. They found that unborn children exposed to acetaminophen were 19% more likely to be on the autism spectrum and 21% more likely to show signs of ADHD.

The researchers did warn that this study is just a possible link. Readers should not take their findings as definitive proof.
