Abstract

In the womb of a mother the fetus experiences amazing growth and development all the time. Many factors are needed to help the fetus grow optimally in the mother's uterus. Nutrient is one of the factors for fetal brain development. Although the fetal brain mass is only about 16% of the body, but compared to other organs, the brain requires the most energy, which is more than 70% for the process of growth and development. Omega-3 and Omega-6 substances more than 60% are needed as constituents of brain cells and neurons. From the study it was said that 55% of diagnoses of autism occur due to the lack of pregnant women consuming intakes containing omega-3 and omega-6, while genetic factors causing autism are only about 37%.
