    They spoke about how they can't actually say it is safe etc.

    It didn't put binge drinking and occasional drinking in the same basket in the way you are implying.
    But that's my point, IMO that's exactly what they are implying by saying that there is no safe levels

    Risks and benefits and all that.

    It's pretty far pushed to put us all in the same basket with the one who binged drink...
    there's guidelines in place for a reason. that's great you chose to snub your nose at them and arrogantly assume you knew better and would be ok. and luckily, it worked out in your favour (I assume).

    but what if it hadn't?

    how would you have felt sitting in the hospital running over all the silly choices you made and wondering what it was that brought you harm?

    to me, as tough and annoying as it is, i'd rather avoid that scenario as much as I can and if it did happen, I could at least rest easy knowing I didn't court unnecessary danger by gobbling sushi or blue cheese when the guidelines quite clearly advise to stay away from them.

    Is it also part of French culture to be rude?

    Oh, wait!

    Just did some reading (yes, I can read too) and it appears that in France, they actually have a label on alcohol bottles stating that "consumption of alcoholic beverages during pregnancy, even in small quantities, can have serious health consequences to the child"

    The 'I did X during my pregnancy and my kid is fine' gives me the pips.

    How many times have I read that anecdote is not evidence on BH?

    This is a serious issue with a growing evidence base that for some reason has been allowed to sit pretty unnoticed in Australia. With estimates of 500000 victims who need to have their condition recognised and get early intervention (or any intervention) I think a really open conversation on how to prevent this number growing needs to be had.

    After all it has to be one of the few foetal abnormalities that is 100% preventable.

    That's exactly right. It's a personal risk and depends on the individual take on the benefits/risks equations.

    Guidelines are just that. Guidelines.

    About FASDs I'm just waiting for a study to show that some kid was affected when a mum drunk 1 standard drink in her pregnancy. But they can't do that. They can't say 1 drink is ok or 10 or 20.
    So they say 0.

    Personally I can't believe 1 standard drink a month or a week would put a children at risk.

    Your point being? France has the same guidelines than other developed countries

    You should watch the show. If you drink at a certain time in your pregnancy then your child could have facial features typical of fas-d.

    But that's just it. ... it's not a personal risk. ..because it *could* have consequences for the baby.

    I think it's a long shot too..that something may happen to the baby...but why take the risk.

    It's a totally 100% preventable syndrome. .. just not having alcohol for a short time. It's not a necessity.
