The link between vitamin D and autism

sunlight is a good source of vitamin D

In 2008, Dr. John Cannell of the Vitamin D Council published a paper on the link between autism and vitamin D. This was the first published paper suggesting that vitamin D was associated with autism.

A study, which was published in the journal Molecular Psychiatry, discovered that pregnant women who had low vitamin D levels when they were 20 weeks pregnant were more likely to have a child who displayed autistic traits by the age of 6.
