Global News interviews Dr. Evdokia Anagnostou about a new autism study
Dr. Evdokia Anagnostou comments on a Norwegian autism study for Global News.
The study shows some link between paternal obesity and autism. Dr. Anagnostou says that while it is valuable information for researchers, parents should not feel guilty about a few extra pounds. She says it is important to note that this increase in risk for autism is very slight, and is not a major factor in a child's risk of autism.
