    No alcohol is a natural process of fermentation, preservative in our foods is poison.

    Wow I had no idea alcohol was so *natural*. Please don't waste your energy boring me with flippant comments about alcohol being a natural process of fermentation. It isn't natural for the body to process. You could actually do some research about the negative effects alcohol does cause on different parts of the body. Or you can live in denial about how bad alcohol actually is for you. But maybe then you couldn't enjoy that drink as much.....sorry

    Many modern foods and drinks are not really designed for our bodies. Depends on what you are into and how far you want to delve. As far as pregnancy is concerned.. It's all about looking after our bodies to the best of our knowledge and ability, we all have different views so let's not argue with eachother-everyone is free to their own opinions :-) let's be encouraging of eachother instead of being argumentative :-)

    Have a good night all!

    This is a pretty simple concept to grasp.
    That's not true. Alcohol is only poisonous in large amounts. Some studies have found that small amount of wine are good for you. and small amounts ARE perfectly safe.

    If that's the case, would you feed your child a small amount of alcohol? I'm responding to the original OP re drinking when you are pregnant, and yes some of the alcohol will reach the baby if you drink while pregnant. IF you think the health benefits outweigh the risks for you and your unborn child then good for you cause that's your choice & you are free to drink.

    But there are pregnant mums out there that may be reading this thread and wondering whether alcohol is safe. I'm not going to nod in agreement and say yeah, its great have a drink when from all the research I've read (& common sense on how alcohol affects myself) it is not good for your body.

    Yes they are. Am I going to sit here and pull up all the research for you? No cause I can't be bothered.

    The good effects alcohol can have in small amounts is in association to adults. Childrens brains are VERY vulrenable to the bad effects of alcohol in any amount, let alone babies/fetuses.
