🚩 A new study out of John Hopkins University, funded by the NIH was just released citing that the use of Acetaminophen (Tylenol) during pregnancy increases the risk of ADHD and Autism in children.
Researchers collected cord blood from 996 births and measured the level of Tylenol and two of the byproducts in it. By the time the babies were 8-9 years old, the babies with the highest levels of Tylenol had a:
⚠️ 2.86 times the risk of ADHD
⚠️ 3.62 times the risk of Autism
"The authors conclude that their results support earlier studies linking acetaminophen exposure in the womb with ADHD and ASD and underscore the need for additional research. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration urges careful consideration before using any pain-relieving medication during pregnancy."
