Study: obese fathers could be link to autistic children

A new study suggests children born to obese fathers run a higher risk of autism.

A study of 93,000 Norweigian children showed that twice as many were autistic when born to obese fathers (0.3%), compared to those fathers who were not (.14%).

The study is the first of its kind to link obesity and autism, though researches have not said that it is the only factor.
