Response to There's also new research looking at Vitamin D and Autism

When I was pregnant, I was told (as all pregnant women are) to stay out of the sun, cover up, where sunscreen because pregnancy hormones react poorly to sun and can cause skin changes: ruddiness, etc. So for the first time in my life, I stayed out of the sun, religiously wore sunscreen and stayed covered up even at the beach. I have often wondered if that resulted in vit D deficiency that caused DS's ASD. Sunscreen is used more than ever and I wonder if the increase in use parallels the increase in autism.
