Antiquated plumbing causes 6 premmies to die The deaths of six premature babies at a hospital in Canada three years ago has been related to bacteria found in the building’s aging water pipes.

Although the amount of kids uncovered prenatally to selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors in this inhabitants was low, results claim that exposure, especially during the first trimester, may raise the risk of ASD modestly, the authors conclude. We advise that our findings be considered as preliminary and treated with caution, pending results from further studies designed to address the very complex issue of whether prenatal contact with SSRIs may be etiologically linked to afterwards diagnoses of ASDs in offspring.
