Eat, drink and be pregnant? That's what new research from Denmark on alcohol and pregnancy is suggesting,Timemagazine reports.
The findings of five papers published in the journalBJOGfound that "light to moderate drinking early in pregnancy — up to eight drinks in a week — has no effects on intelligence, attention or self-control in children at age 5," according to theTimearticle. However, the findings did reveal that "drinking more heavily was associated with measurable negative effects," theTimearticle says.
Alcohol and pregnancy is a hot-button issue in the United States. (Remember the Internet rage when pregnant actress Kate Hudson was spotted with a glass of wine?)
Experts in the U.S. say it's better to be safe than sorry when it comes to alcohol and pregnancy. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention emphasizes that no amount of alcohol consumption is safe during pregnancy.
However, recent scientific findings are conflicting.
