A new study showed that the reduction of vital nutrients and calories in the first half of pregnancy affect the development of the brain of an unborn baby.
Although the study was conducted on animals, researchers say that the findings are likely to be true for humans.
The author of the scientific work, Dr. JK Donald, said: “This study is further evidence of the importance of good maternal health and its diet.
Our findings again confirm the opinion of many scientists that poor nutrition during pregnancy can change the development of the fetal organs, in this case, the brain. The lack of certain vitamins in the mother’s diet will have an effect on the life of the offspring, potentially reducing IQ and leading to behavioral problems of the child. ”
Past studies have shown that hard diets, hunger and a lack of important minerals and vitamins during pregnancy can harm unborn babies.
