Study Shows Caffeine Consumption Raises Miscarriage Rate

Do you like this story?

Bad news for coffee addicts, especially for the pregnant women, the latest study shows women who drank two or more cups of coffee daily during pregnancy had double the rate of miscarriages.

Expectant mothers have been confused for years about whether drinking that morning cup of joe could do harm to their unborn child.

Some previous studies have shown that consuming caffeine during pregnancy increases a woman’s risk for miscarriage, while others have found that drinking just a couple cups of coffee a day doesn’t pose much of a threat.

The latest research to examine the risk of caffeine consumption during pregnancy reveals that women who said they drank more than two cups of coffee per day had nearly double the risk of miscarriage compared with women who consumed no caffeine.

“I am not at all surprised by this study,” said Dr. Sherman Silber, director of the Infertility Center at St. Lukes Hospital in St. Louis. “Coffee is toxic stuff.”

This is a bunch of horse manure. I am 65 and had 6 children . I have drank 12 to 24 cups od coffee all my life since age 11. I also smoked 2 to 3 packs a day all my life.All my children were born healthy and to this day are healthy. None had any childhood diseases nor lung problems etc. My doctor says it is genetic. My family came to Jamestown 1607 to grow tobacco which they still do to this day. They lived into their hundreds. My mom just died this last Jan age 94 and her brother 2 months before that age 97 and both smokers and coffee drinkers. When you get it in your heads that other things are causing these problems and not coffee or cigarettes then you will begin to find the cures. Such as pesticides, chemicals added to everything you use. Chemicals in water such as Clorine.
I cannot be around chemicals nor perfumes etc. I live at 7000 foot altitude where the air and water are pristine and not contaminated. I clean my home with non bleach and non france products. I have never had a flu shot and NEVER had the flu. Must have been a bunch of Mormons or morons who did these studies.

Hey media! Could you do some stories about men’s health that’s NOT about urinary or erection problems? We care about our health just as much as women. Women already have the ultimate better health – they live longer. One would think that by itself would put more emphasis on helping men live longer. You know, that whole “level the playing field” thing.

Whatever did women do without all this modern medicine to help them have babies?!? Our mothers and grandmothers some, drank, took several medications, and lived normal lives and they bore just as many healthy babies as women do today. The problem isn’t so much with what they put in their bodi3s as it is putting their bodies under the stress of pregnancy, while their minds are stressed out over work and modern life in general.
