Alcohol_Effects_On _Unborn Children
Alcohol is not an ordinary commodity. Alcohol has been a part of human civilization for thousands of years. Alcohol has harmful consequences on both HEALTH and social relations. The nature and severity of the alcohol effect depends on two things- the amount of alcohol consumed and the pattern of consumption. Alcohol consumption will affect the unborn children also because if you’re pregnant and take a drink which can be a glass of beer or wine or cocktail, then HealthCare Review tells that your unborn baby also
takes the same drink. This alcohol interferes with the unborn baby’s ability to get enough nourishments and oxygen which is very much necessary for Cell development in the unborn baby’s brain and other organs of its body. It has been proved by various researches that developing babies have very little tolerance to alcohol and it causes Fatal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) in the unborn babies.

FAS is a pattern of severe mental and physical defects that develop in unborn babies whose mother’s consume alcohol during the course of pregnancy. The baby may be born with serious handicaps requiring lifetime special attention.

Potential problems as a result of alcohol consumption during pregnancy:

Ø  Smaller body size

Ø  Improper ribs and sternum formation

Ø  Paralysis

Ø  Lower body weight

Ø  Organ Malfunctioning

Ø  Mental retardation

Ø  Smaller brain

Ø  Genital disorders

Ø  Curved spine and limited movement of joints

HEALTH SOLUTION: If you are pregnant, please do not take a chance with the future of your unborn baby. Stop drinking immediately.
