Babble (ing) Idiots!

I am annoyed after reading this article at today.

First, I want to say this, “AHHH! Life is so tough for some people –> no sushi, peanuts, cat poop or booze for a whole nine months!”

I could go on and on about the inaccuracies and generalizations, but I won’t, I just want to focus on one!

Myth # 6 – Alcohol exposure leads to Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and mental retardation.
According to the author:

Oh, relax! All of the children described in the original paper on FAS were born to severe, chronic alcoholics. While some researchers argue that any alcohol is bad, others (including Britain’s Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists) say that an infrequent glass of wine with dinner is nothing to worry about. Believe it or not, there’s even some severe, chronic alkies whose pregnancies come out fine (although being a severe, chronic alkie is never advisable). Do the research and come to your own personal decision.
