Skanque: Absolutely not true. We study a model of fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD), and we have shown that even light drinking during pregnancy can permanently alter neurotransmitter receptor subunit composition, leading to subtle problems in learning and memory processes.Don't drink during pregnancy. At all.
cherryl taggart: nigeman: The timing of the drinking is very critical. The first few says and weeks mean more than the rest of the pregnancy.I doubt this study does much to disprove previous studiesUnfortunately, unless you are trying to get pregnant, the critical time you mention has usually passed by before you stop drinking. Please give your baby the best chance you can. You can have many years to drink later, especially if your kid is healthy. If your kid never flies the nest because of neurological deficits, you don't. And trust me, you want your years of pleasant imbibing during the kid's puberty.
darkjezter: I predict this thread becoming a beer snob circle-jerk very quickly.
