Even Moderate Drinking in Pregnancy Can Affect a Child's IQ

Relatively small levels of exposure to alcohol while in the womb can influence a child's IQ, according to a new study...

'Our results suggest that even at levels of alcohol consumption which are normally considered to be harmless, we can detect differences in childhood IQ, which are dependent on the ability of the fetus to clear this alcohol. This is evidence that even at these moderate levels, alcohol is influencing fetal brain development.'
