A new study suggest that taking a multivitamin during pregnancy may reduce a child's risk of developing autism. Analyzing more than a quarter-million mother-child pairs in Sweden, researchers found a link -- but not cause and effect proof -- between multivitamin use and risk of the neurological disorder. The odds of autism in the multivitamin group were 30 percent lower. Since mothers-to-be are already advised to take prenatal vitamins to prevent some birth defects, this may be an added benefit.
