New Research on IQ and Pre natal Alcohol Exposure

Guess you have seen the news this am talking about the risks of drinking when pregnant and the potential to lower the child's IQ. It is already known that a child's IQ can be affected by pre-natal alcohol exposure and that it can cause significant learning difficulties. Although it is a good piece by a great doctor (Dr Ron Gray), it does not overall add much to those who are parents.

But the positive news is that it gets people talking about the subject, might help prevent some children being born with FASD and gives us a chance to talk about our kids difficulties naturally with others.
