Research conducted at the University of Florida’s Brain Institute revealed that rats that ate high-fat or high-sugar diets gave birth to babies that weigh more as adults and drank more alcohol. The rat babies also had stronger responses to commonly abused drugs such as amphetamines.
Other research has shown us that when mother drinks alcohol, babies have a “taste” for it. After all, it’s how they were trained in the womb, right?
Recent studies have addressed the issue of the “mother lode”. Women who use drugs or took medications within 3 years of conceiving may pass some of those drugs onto their babies.
Women have more fat than men and toxins are stored in fats.
The more information you have, the healthier your baby will be both now and forever.
