The fetus had alcohol


Recent research confirms that alcohol consumed during pregnancy has a deleterious effect on the fetus.

The fetus had alcohol

Changes in the structure and metabolism of children who have been exposed to alcohol in their fetuses have also been detected by different medical techniques - have been investigated by Polish researchers - can cause problems in the mental and physical development of the newborn baby, the condition is called fetal alcohol syndrome. According to the United States' orbital authority, according to CDC research, there are 0.2-1.5 cases per thousand births.
The development of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) has made it possible to examine the effects of alcohol on the central nervous system of affected children with unprecedented accuracy. Polish researchers have used three different MRI techniques in their recent research to more accurately determine the influence of alcohol consumption on the fetal nervous system of pregnant women.
The study enrolled 200 children who were exposed to alcohol in their fetus and 30 children whose mothers did not drink alcohol during pregnancy and breastfeeding. During MRI examinations, the size and shape of the body were mapped. (The corpus callosum is a large bundle of nerve fibers that serves as the main communication link between the right and left sides of the brain.)
The prenatal alcoholic effects are the leading cause of the body lack of development or even to complete deficiency. MRI studies have shown that the corpus cavernosum of the corpus luteum is significantly reduced in the brain of children exposed to alcohol.
"These changes are closely linked to children's psychological problems," he quoted. Andrzej Urbanik Research Director, Jagello University, Cracow, from the ScienceDaily cognitive portal. The third test method helps to improve children's brain metabolism. This is the analysis showed a whole series of differences between exposed and unaffected groups of alcohol.
  • Alcohol consumption during pregnancy? Occasionally?
  • Just a glass?
  • Caffeine and alcohol consumption - friendly or hostile?
  • A glass of alcohol can be good for your baby
