Fever and Autism
U.C. Davis researchers say women who have fevers during pregnancy can increase their babies' risk of autism.
Researchers find pregnant mothers with fevers are more than twice as likely to have a child with autism, or a developmental delay.
That's compared to mothers who controlled their temperatures with medication.
Or those who didn't have a fever at all.
The first-of-its kind study is in the Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders.
Need a good reason to keep sleeping with your partner, even if he or she snores or hogs the sheets?
