Alcohol is not ok if you are pregnant

Alcohol is not ok if you are pregnant

New research reveals that even a few drinks a week by a pregnant mother can lower the IQ in her unborn baby. 

These researchers looked at mothers who consumed between one and six drinks a week and then the DNA of their children were analyzed (with all ‘confounder’ sociological or socioeconomic differences between abstainers and drinkers removed). 

The damage was seen only among mothers who drank alcohol. 

Any questions?
