I was born two months early and have been described as "crazy" "not right" "something's off about him" "was he that way before the drinking" "why are his art projects alway filled with blood" etcetera etcetera. They gave me last rites as I was not expected to survive at my birth weight. So I would say, through reverse logic, yeah I think the study may be on to something.

Childhood and adolescence, you say?  Yeah, I suppose I was pretty okay at those ages.

So underweight babies might be progeny of psychologically challenged people? Like alcoholics or crack fiends?

Pregnant women should not consume foods containing added sugar/fructose and children should wait until after age 2 to be introduced to sugar.

The article didn't say anything about high birth weight being low risk. It said low birth rate had a higher risk. Which isn't surprising at all because low birth rate is frequently due to being premature which causes a whole host of problems.
