I thought OB recommends Paracetamol or acetaminophen for pregnant women, they said it is the safest now it's no longer safe? Their study also showed that exposure to paracetamol while pregnant raises the risk of autism spectrum diseases more in boys and it was associated with higher rates of ADHD in both male and female. “The male brain may be more vulnerable to harmful influences during early life. Our differing gender results suggest that androgenic endocrine disruption, to which male brains could be more sensitive, may explain the association,” lead author Claudia Avella-Garcia, researcher at Centre for Research in Environmental Epidemiology (CREAL), a Spanish research organization.

I have ADHD and I have aspergers, I wonder if my mom took a lot of paracetamol back then.

@CaptAlbertWhisker I don't know that, because when my wife got pregnant and when she had a fever the OB said that only Paracetamol is safe for expecting mothers

@ronc510 I wonder if topical headache cured like White flower oil is safer.
