    I think the word "might" here is the clue!

    I took them and my son has autism!

    It says "half as likely"...which means it could lessen the risk.
    I mean, don't get me wrong, statistics and studies should always be taken with a grain of salt. I always loved the saying "90% of statistics can be made to say anything".
    Just thought it was an interesting article.

    It is interesting but it seems like a lot of research still has to be done. I'm sure there are lots of factors that contribute to autism and not all of them are going to be the same for every person. Women really should be taking prenatals anyway when TTC or planning to and especially as soon as they get that positive. If nothing else it ensures overall health.
