Now before people start calling me crazy...I am NOT saying this is true!!!

I saw on the news today that a study has been done, women who had the flu while pregnant, or had a fever for more than a week are more likely to have a baby with autism....

Anyone have any truth to this...what are your thoughts....just curious..... ;)

    Anything to pin Autism on something. Before you know it...breathing & giving birth will be the cause of it. Its ridiculous.

    There's a study for everything to cause autism. I don't think they know what does

    Yeah you know all of these studies are so true!  NOT!  They are grasping for anything.

    my son has autism and ive never had the flu in my life, besides morning sickness and a few fainting spells i had a 100% healthy pregnancy, well not completely i did have a bad bleed at 9 weeks, but it was shown that it caused no effects.

    I read an article that linked older dads to autism. Who knows? Everything causes something these days.
