Unhealthy diet raises risk of preterm birth
Unhealthy diet raises risk of preterm birth (May 27, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From Australia - According to research published in the Journal of Nutrition, an unhealthy diet during pregnancy is linked to preterm birth. Researchers studied over 300 women during pregnancy and birth. They found that those who ate protein rich food such as lean mean, fish, chicken, in addition to fruits, vegetables and whole grains, were at significantly reduced risk of preterm birth. Meanwhile, women who ate foods such potato chips, cakes, and other foods high in saturated fats and sugars were much more likely to have a preterm baby.
