Autism and Jaundice: An Observation

I am not sure how many other Autie parents saw this one, but it is a study about the possible link between Autism and Jaundice.  The correlation is not huge and they even mention that children with Autism in their genes may be predisposed to being Jaundice; which came first, the Autism or the Jaundice (you get the reference).

I found it interesting because Jaylen had very mild Jaundice, almost nothing, and has Autism.  Xavier had such severe Jaundice that he almost became brain damaged, had to stay under 5 bili lights in the NICU for 2 weeks, and is neuro-typical.  Interesting.

Anyone else with any links or non-links to Autism and Jaundice?
