".... By reviewing the medical histories of children and comparing the test results of autistic subjects with healthy children, Torres and Ward should be able to determine if there is a linkage between autism, fever and the use of antipyretics by pregnant mothers and small children.

There has been considerable debate about vaccines causing autism. Parents commonly note that their child became autistic after receiving a vaccine. However, epidemiologists have not shown a connection between autism and vaccines. That is why the practice of suppressing fever with antipyretics should be examined to determine if there is a connection between the suppression of fever and autism or antipyretics and autism. If Dr. Torres' theory proves true, thousands of healthy children could be saved from becoming autistic"

I am a bit botherd by the fact that now I have to worry about Tylenol. It is no wonder that I do not take medication or give my kids medication UNLESS it is really nessassary.

You've got to be kidding. Now it's the Tylenol give AFTER the vaccine that may be the cause of autism.

Wake up people.

I guess that gives me one more reason to be glad I don't medicate fevers.

I definitely think this type of research would be valuable. Many parents report their children regress after illness or immunization, two times in which these are used. I did use Tylenol on occasion when I was pregnant. It would certainly warrant investigation, but is scary to think about.

Ok, let me see if I am getting this right? They are under the impression that giving a child Tylenol can cause autism...and even a pregnant mother taking Tylenol may have some affect on a child?

I am questioning this because I know that MY ped.does not let me use anything BUT Tylenol for the first 2-4months of my childrens life. I also know that as pregnant women we are not to take anything BUT Tylenol.

So, if so many people give their children Tylenol ESPECIALLY during vaccinations, and SO many pg women use this drug for medicinal purposes how can we really know that its a cause of autism? Why do all these parents who say their children have become autistic only has happened AFTER the vaccinations? Does the Tylenol and the vaccines have a habit of reacting oddly together in a childs system?

I hope you do not find this to be silly questioning just trying to understand more.
