Study claims link between vitamin D and autism

Researchers in Australia have found a strong link between vitamin D and brain development that can cause autism.

A study has been done on the effect of vitamin D supplements given during pregnancy. It has been found that low Vitamin D levels in pregnant women can increase the chances of children being autistic.

The results indicate that it is necessary that women get enough amount of vitamin D when they are expecting. The best source of vitamin D is sunlight.

Sitting in sun on regular basis is recommended for protection against autism. The vitamin is also found in fish like salmon and tuna, dairy products and cereals.
