Studies show using Tylenol while pregnant increases the risk of autism.

Exposure to Tylenol or general acetaminophen in the womb, increases a child’s risk for autism spectrum disorder according to multiple studies. 

 

In a study at Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, the risk of autism spectrum disorder were 3 times higher for children whose mothers took the most acetaminophen. 

Tylenol Marketed as "Safe" for Pregnant Women

Pregnant women regularly take Tylenol or generic acetaminophen for minor aches and pains instead of other over the counter pain medications because it’s generally considered “safe” for pregnant mothers. 

 

This safety perception has made Tylenol use almost universal among pregnant women. 

 

A recent Johns Hopkins study of 996 births, found acetaminophen compounds in every baby’s umbilical cord.

Johns Hopkins Study

A Johns Hopkins study analyzing umbilical cord blood samples found that newborns with the highest exposure to acetaminophen were about three times more likely to be diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. 

The makers of Tylenol did not warn parents

Even though studies show that exposure to Tylenol during pregnancy significantly increases the risk of autism, the makers of Tylenol still did not warn pregnant women about the potential dangers.
