Study Links Flu During Pregnancy to Increased Risk of Autism

I have to admit, these studies linking pretty much everything under the sun to an increased risk of autism are tiring. I know that I’m probably over thinking things but each time one of these studies are published, I feel that as a mom I’m at fault for my children’s autism – the blame game just doesn’t get old. I also understand the need to continue to research autism but at this point I feel like everything could potentially cause autism and we just can’t live in a bubble, can we?
