Yeah I saw this on the news yesterday. I think it is irresponsable and sends mixed messages to propagate this story however IMO.
It says light drinking, in the report this suggests, 1 glass of wine a week, 1 beer or 1 spirit.
But how many irresponsible people are out there. I can just see it now, a bunch of idiot adolecent parents (adolecences now extends into the mid-late
twenties) are going to end up thinking its okay to binge drink one night when they are 7 months pregnant and thinking everything is going to be okay -
2 months later their child is going to be born with brain damage.
Thats why its easier just to say, dont drink while you're pregnant - once glass of redwine at a wedding is okay, tops.
bah - I wonder who paid for this study? The Alcohol lobby?
