The researchers suggest that making inexpensive and safe vitamin D supplements available for for pregnant women ...

The importance of vitamin D during childhood development is pretty well established – both the UK and US health departments recommend infants be given daily supplements. But new research is throwing further weight behind the argument that this little nudge along could begin earlier in the developmental chain. It links vitamin D deficiency in pregnant mothers with autistic traits in the child a few years down the track.
