One Weekly Drink During Pregnancy Influences Child’s Behavior

Children exposed to alcohol in the womb were 3.2 times more likely to exhibit aggressive behavior problems by 6 years old than children with no fetal alcohol exposure. Even as little as 1 drink per week increased risk and greater use increased childhood behavioral problems even more. The authors warned that a mother should be informed there is “no safe level” of alcohol use during pregnancy.

PositiveTip: If you are even considering the possibility of pregnancy, don’t drink alcoholic beverages.
