Okay, the wine-during-pregnancy row has reached new heights of ridiculousness... "they" (whoever "they" are) are now recommending that women do not drink at all during pregnancy or when attempting to conceive. (As to the latter, drinking during conception could be tricky for some.)
Two things: one, who's going to break it to French women that they can't have a glass of red wine with dinner? the same poor f&*%er who had to tell them they can't eat unpasturised cheeses for nine months?
And two, what about all of us of my generation whose mothers drank in moderation, and we're all absolutely fine? Many clinicians say the evidence that moderate drinking harms unborn children is "sketchy". Quite.
It's the same old bollocks: "The People" are too stupid to understand the meaning of the term "moderation", in the eyes of many, and so advice to drink in moderation is not strong enough for those few morons who binge drink during pregnancy and end up with [more morons] who suffer from Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.
