-- -- a brand new book article whatever it is creating quite a controversy this morning attended drinking alcohol and copy may be.
I still came during pregnancy.
Book written by doctor was written by an economist.
Who looked at hundreds of studies and then compiled all the stats come up with these conclusions -- issue right.
Here to -- and doctors doctor Carlos -- from Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey and doctor Julian stone director of maternal fetal medicine.
And Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York where I had my -- BC's good morning to both morning and right so Emily ouster is the woman who did this.
Many people are talking about -- because it's controversial but all the because it was an economists approached.
She became pregnant and she looked at all of these studies and used her own conclusions specifically about coffee.
She said that I think she said three to four cups today is fine when you're pregnant after signing would you advise your patients to do this.
You know I would tell them if they love coffee go ahead and drink three to four cups but.
In general I would invite someone to increase what they're drinking the problem is that everybody gets so excited when -- pregnant -- about every drop that they put in in none of -- bodies.
And I think if you are -- coffee drinker and three cups makes you ecstatic go ahead haven't -- And -- agreed that coffee up to certain amount is totally fine if you look at the research most research shows that up to three and two milligrams of -- okay which is each cut has about a hundred milligrams -- and so that's spent three cups of coffee thank.
And it's no association with an increased risk for miscarriage birth defects fill birth to think it's totally fine.
And so both of you read -- you don't just have to completely it cut it out like you know -- -- children eight and ten years ago.
I completely cut out because that's what the findings were back then let's move on to fish.
So much has been made of this recently because of the Mercury that's found in fish and also sushi -- -- units daily for sushi which is.
Hard to -- -- sitting had to quit.
So she said fish as your friend after stone -- I totally -- at think that there are certain fish that we -- to -- their fish that are very high in Mercury.
King fish toward -- swordfish Mac on tile fish.
To an imminent quantities sufficient a lot of health benefits -- some money and make it the reason there there's some studies that showed decreased risk of preterm birth.
I'm and the whole -- with sushi it's it's to hold -- -- because the sushi is really not on institution that serve is really not prone to parasites.
This -- fine but I tell patients but once you look pregnant.
To deliver water and because they're good people in the rest and they'll come up to -- -- you're pregnant you should be well -- he'll speak at that what about alcohol that seems to be the most controversial aspect of being pregnant and I would think.
No I wonder how I'd feel -- -- pregnant woman drinking and quite frankly just because what I was told I was pregnant absolutely you know don't have -- So she found from her research that occasional alcohol was OK tax money you can.
-- -- Only is fine and I mean a long time ago we used to give women alcohol to stop preterm labor.
We know that a small glass of wine can relax the body relaxes the muscles and real relaxes the uterus if a woman means.
A glass of one and a half a glass of wine occasionally.
Once or twice during her pregnancy there's no prob that's different than what she's saying because she was saying one glass -- line.
A day Pakistan I think that on.
The end of the bottom line is that there's -- known lower safe limit of alcohol but their recent studies that show that moderate alcohol consumption a couple classes a week.
Is does not have any effect to -- -- study that was published and then in the second or third term right.
Mainly in the second -- -- they really into good people throughout pregnancy as well as after delivery people continue drinking they look at 7000 women.
And they show that moderate uncle called alcohol consumption it's not associated any difference in balancing.
I wish we had more time and I thought it might -- -- told me to drink beer it would help to breastfeed.
And I talked Sox I don't like beer wine -- -- that a doctor Simonyi and doctor Stan thanks so much for parsing this really controversial study appreciate it coming.
