Taking Two Drinks per Month During Pregnancy, Can Reduce the IQ of Your Baby

It has been well-established that heavy drinking during pregnancy causes problems for the fetus, but, after studying 500 newborns at the University Hospital in Erlangen Germany, they found higher levels of a particular chemical, Ethyl Glucuronide, in women who had two alcoholic beverages per month. They followed these babies to the age of 6 and found that these babies have a lower IQ than normal babies by 4 points. This suggests that even less drinking can also cause the problem and would obviously be a major problem for children.
