Children's mental abilities do not appear to suffer from women's moderate levels of drinking while pregnant, a new series of Danish studies suggests.
The studies involved 5-year-old children. Those whose mothers had consumed up to eight alcoholic drinks per week during pregnancydid not have a higher risk of attention or IQ deficits than the children of women who did not drink during pregnancy, the researchers said.
However, eight drinks seemed to be the threshold: Nine or more drinks per week was associated with an increased risk of attention problems in children, the researchers said.
