Key words: "may be". The study also says, there is no need to be alarmed because 98% of women who experienced fever or flu during pregnancy went on to have children who did not have symptoms of Autism.
Sounds like just another way to get more people to get a flu vaccine (i.e: more money for doctor's offices).
