Alcohol industry ‘puts pregnant women at risk’, researchers say

In a recent story in the Guardian they highlight the impact Alcohol firms are having on pregnant women in the UK.

The story states:

“Alcohol firms and bodies they fund are encouraging women to drink in pregnancy – putting their unborn child in danger – by publishing false and misleading information about the risks involved, new research claims.

The alcohol industry is ignoring scientific evidence as part of a drive to “nudge” mothers-to-be into drinking as part of a deliberate strategy to ensure women keep consuming their products because young people are turning away from them, researchers say.”
