  • Study: Autism risk may fall with prenatal intake of folic acid
    Taking folic acid supplements before conception and early in pregnancy was associated with a lower risk of having children with autism, according to a Norwegian study in the Journal of the American Medical Association. The effects of folic acid on genes and DNA repair may explain its role in brain development disorders in babies, including autism, researchers said.

  • Prenatal intake of omega-3s may not boost brain development
    Data from 11 clinical trials on the effect of omega-3 fatty acid supplementation during pregnancy on a child's brain development showed that such supplements had neither a positive nor negative effect on visual or neurological capacity. Since a majority of the trials had very few participants, excluded difficult pregnancies and failed to monitor the children long enough, Australian researchers said that more research is needed. The study was published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Reuters (2/8) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
