Study: Moderate drinking OK during pregnancy
British researchers assessed the long-term impact of drinking during pregnancy by testing the balancing abilities of about 7,000 10-year-old kids.
70 percent of the children’s mothers said they drank no alcohol when they were expecting, and 25 percent reported alcohol consumption in the “low” to “moderate” range. “Moderate” drinking was defined as three to seven drinks in a week.
The balance tests showed kids of moms who drank moderate amounts of alcohol while pregnant did not appear to have any neuro-developmental problems.
