Alcohol is a toxin to the body. Beer has the highest levels of the heavy metal -aluminum of all ingestible food sources. Is it any wonder that beer drinkers are coming down with alzheimers in record numbers? All alcohol contains heavy metals, some more than one kind of metal.
Heavy metals attach themselves to your mineral receptors, and block them so that you cannot absorb those minerals anymore. They affect the nervous system, the endocrine system, the vascular system. Heavy metals have been implicated in the high amounts of autism now prevalent.
Acohol goes right into the blood in high concentrations. The brain needs ample amounts of blood at al times and so is vunerable to damage. Your baby's brain is no different and has the same blood volumn requirement. Your blood feeds your baby via the umbilical cord.
If you MUST drink- get the book "taking Charge Of Your Fertility" and track your ovulation cycles, so that you cn keep your fertile period clear of alcohol. This will allow you to drink during non fertile periods and avoid poisoning a baby.
