The influence of alcohol on the conception of a child
Alcoholic beverages have been around for millennia. The influence of alcohol on the adult and children’s body is known for more than a hundred years. But how ethanol works to fertilize an egg with a sperm and to develop a fetus during pregnancy is not entirely understandable. This circumstance the future parents very much underestimate, planning to get the child. Today’s material will help to look at this problem from all sides.
Even in ancient times, a woman was forbidden to drink alcohol at a childbearing age, since even then it was known the harmful influence of alcohol on a future child. People did not have the necessary equipment for research, but they noticed a certain connection between conception and alcohol.
This prohibition was not applied to men in vain. Only in the twentieth century were the first studies devoted to this topic. It turned out that the drunkenness of the father is no less reflected on the child than the excessive consumption of alcohol by the mother.
Statistics showed that 70 percent of people prone to alcoholism were fathers drinking and only 10 percent had mothers. Even more horrifying statistics on psychological institutions, which indicates that two out of ten newborn children who drink father or mother suffer from mental disabilities. Therefore, the answer to the question arises by itself.
