LIGHT DRINKING SAID OK FOR PREGNANT WOMEN
While binge drinking is still harmful, pregnant women can safely consume small amounts of alcohol. Drinking just a little could also help pregnant women relax, Kelly said. Plenty of recent studies have pointed out the risk of maternal stress to fetal development. A relaxed parenting style could be beneficial, too.

I have heard doctors advise women that drinking helps them relax. They are usually very careful about the second drink, and not drinking daily. However, I admit, that they are reluctant to put it in writing, as it exposes them to lawsuits.





Date of issue 10/6/10? Can you give us something a little more up to date?

Light drinking has never been harmful, it shouldn't be harmful for a 5 year old either, in his dosage.

The only problem with light and moderate drinking is that people either can't hold themselves from stepping it up or misunderstand what "light" or "moderate" means. That watered-down insult of a martini you get in a casino, or an ordinary 0.33 beer? That's your light drinking for the day.

On Mad Men, a show set in the early 60's, the
pregnant women drink like fish and smoke
packs of cigarettes a day. And the kids these
days seem far more screwed up than the kids
born in the 50's and 60's.

When I was in grade school I don't remember
more than maybe 2 or 3 obese kids in the
whole school. I was at a red light this week
as a school loaded kids onto busses, and
my god! The fat circus was in town. I've never
seen so many grossly obese kids in one place in
my life. Some were so fat their eyes were squeezed
shut. Maybe drinking and smoking in pregnancy curbs the
appetites of kids when they're growing, wouldn't
that be a hoot.

To paraphrase Sheldon's mother in The Big bang Theory: First they tell you no alcohol. Then they say we're not getting enough.

Does this count:

premature labor.
 One of few medical uses of ethanol.

And that would've had to been ordered by MD, I assume.

If it is OK for a pregnant women to drink, then it should be fine for kids too.
I am not arguing either side, just saying that it is logically inconsistent to advocate for pregnant women drinking while supporing the ban for selling alcohol to kids under 1 yo.

Just because it might not be beneficial, doesn't mean it should be criminal. I think my wife had a 1/2 of a beer once during the pregnancy, I think jail might be a bit harsh.
