This con­clu­sion was made by sci­en­tists from the Span­ish Cen­ter for Research in Envi­ron­men­tal Epi­demi­ol­o­gy CREAL after a sur­vey of 2,500 moth­ers whose chil­dren were aged 1 to 5 years.

The sur­vey was con­duct­ed twice, women had to answer whether they took parac­eta­mol dur­ing preg­nan­cy, and if so, how often.

As it turned out, 43% of chil­dren under 1 year old and 41% of babies under 5 years old were exposed to parac­eta­mol in utero. All of them were hyper­ac­tive.

And if a woman took the drug often, then the child suf­fered from an atten­tion dis­or­der in the future, and signs of autism were found in the boys. This is due to the fact that the male brain is more sen­si­tive to endocrine and andro­genic changes.

How­ev­er, dur­ing this study, experts saw only the symp­toms of dis­eases, and not the diag­no­sis. There­fore, experts rec­om­mend addi­tion­al test­ing before pre­scrib­ing parac­eta­mol to preg­nant women so that doc­tors can pre­scribe a safe dose of the drug if nec­es­sary.
