Lead exposure for babies linked to autism

Recent research done on baby teeth indicates that exposure to lead during pregnancy or shortly after birth might make infants more prone to autism. Also, lack of zinc and manganese may lead to developmental disorder.

Key takeaways:

– Metal exposure in early pregnancy might increase autism severity when it develops.

– The study suggests a direct effect of lead and lack of zinc and manganese on the development of early brain.

–  It’s possible that autistic children are unable to process the minerals.

Remember to take your baby to the dentist for checkups.
