Medical Consensus Links Tylenol (Acetaminophen) to ASD/ADHD in Children

In December 2021, 91 clinicians, research scientists, and public health professionals from across the globe sounded the alarm about acetaminophen use in pregnancy. These doctors published a Consensus Statement in the prestigious journal Nature about the links between prenatal acetaminophen exposure and neurodevelopmental disorders. They noted acetaminophen is widely used by pregnant women – even as an increasing number of experimental and epidemiological research suggested the drug might alter fetal development and increase the risk of neurodevelopment disorders, such as ASD and ADHD.
The Consensus Doctors reviewed fifty-three medical research studies that examined the links between prenatal acetaminophen use and neurodevelopment disorders – both experimental (laboratory animal studies) and epidemiological (studies of children exposed to acetaminophen prenatally). The doctors warned, “we believe the combined weight of animal and human scientific evidence is strong enough for pregnant women to be cautioned by health professionals against [acetaminophen’s] indiscriminate use.”
