Pregnant woman who have high levels of a byproduct from the banned insecticide DDT in their bodies may be more likely to have a child with autism, a new study finds.

A New Jersey father who contracted a flesh-eating bacteria while crabbing in early July underwent surgery this week to have his forearms and hands amputated, his family said.
