Link between teen mothers and autism
Link between teen mothers and autism (June 11, 2015 - Insidermedicine) From New York - Research published in Molecular Psychiatry finds a link between teenage motherhood and autism. Researchers studied autism rates among nearly 6 million children. Around 30,000 of these children had autism. Participants were born between 1985 and 2004 and were followed up until 2009. Results showed that paternal age, maternal age and parental age-gaps all influenced risk of autism. However, the strongest association occurred among teenage moms and among children with a large gap between their ages.
