    My husband was telling me about this study the other day. Our son had jaundice and he has Aspergers.

    I was premie, didn't have jaundice and I have AS. Guess the vit D thingy's too late for me now! Maybe my mum didn't get enough vitamin D when she was pregnant with me...

    It's not about the jaundice, it's about the vitamin D.

    Yeah, this isn't a jaundice problem, it's a D problem. The jaundice just also happens to be a D problem:

    http://health.usnews.com/health-news...tism-link.html
    "When the statistics were broken down further, the researchers found the heightened autism risk only among jaundiced children born in the fall and winter (between October and March) or whose mothers had given birth before. Those children had a two to three times greater chance of developing autism."
