increase risk of their children developing an autism spectrum disorder. well our dr. jon lapook has been looking into this and with us now with a dose of reality. jon, pregnant women are told to take folic acid. >> and that stays exactly the same. there is no doubt that women who have too little intake of folic acid in pregnancy have increased risk of having kids with birth defects. so that recommendation from the government, which is to take 400-800 micrograms of folic acid a day in pregnancy stays the same. nobody is questioning that. >> what do you make of this study? >> this study -- normally we would not cover aster that was this preliminary. an abstract. meaning it hasn't yet been submitted for, for publication to a journal. it has the not been reviewed yet by the scientific community. there are numbers in there that give me pause. for example the rate of autism they report is five times what the cdc reports.
that makes me wonder are they everd overdieing anotion. what it showed was women who have high levels of foliction ait, folate, b-12 soon after delivery had kids who went on to develop autism at a hyperrate than normal. now this does not mean that taking too much b-12 or folate causes autism this association. needs more study. and the bottom line here is recommendation stays exactly the same. we do not want will tune misinterpret the headline. should still be taking folic acid supplementation during pregnancy. >> despite the headlines today this study kpizis extremely preliminary and doesn't change the advice to take folic acid. >> check with your doctor when taking supplementation or medication. >> dr. jon lapook with the straight story. thank you, jon. coming up next, the owner could only watch helplessly as firefighters tried to save his house.
