Alco­hol Con­sump­tion Dur­ing Preg­nancy Dam­ages the Unborn Brain

Reuters Health news ser­vice ran an arti­cle dated Feb 10, 2000, that stated that researchers now know how drink­ing alco­hol dur­ing preg­nancy can affect the brain of a fetus. This study also pub­lished in the Feb­ru­ary 11, 2000 issue of the Jour­nal of Sci­ence, was con­ducted at Wash­ing­ton Uni­ver­sity School of Med­i­cine in St. Louis Missouri.

One of the authors, Dr. John Olney, stated that “Its a mech­a­nism that involves inter­fer­ing with basic trans­mit­ter of the sys­tems in the brain, which lit­er­ally dri­ves the brains nerve cells to com­mit sui­cide.” The shock­ing part of the report was that it was reported that just one episode of get­ting drunk dur­ing the third trimester of preg­nancy would be enough to dam­age the brain of a fetus.
