Study says a little booze when bun's in the oven is 'harmless'6/20/2012
New research from Denmark has suggested knocking back a few drinks when you're knocked up is not linked to harmful effects on your child. Danish researchers studied pregnant women who had varying intakes of alcohol and then studied the IQ, attention span and other faculties of their children when they were five years old. They found low to moderate drinking in early pregnancy -- which they defined as one to eight drinks per week - did not have a "significant effect" on the neurodevelopment of the kids at that age. Having more than nine drinks a week, however, was linked to lower attention span. The U.S. Surgeon General recommends complete abstinence from alcohol during pregnancy.
