Your Health Minute

Taking prenatal vitamins might help prevent autism.

In Your Health Minute,

Taking prenatal vitamins early in pregnancy might lower the risk of autism in high-risk kids.

A new study followed over 200 children who had sibling diagnosed with autism.

Kids whose moms took prenatal vitamins in the first month of pregnancy were much less likely to have autism than those whose moms did not take them.

Experts say more research is needed to confirm these results.
