Consumption of tea or coffee during pregnancy
Consumption of tea or coffee during pregnancy is considered dangerous for women During pregnancy,
women should avoid caffeinated beverages such as coffee, tea, and soft drinks to avoid any harm.
This is revealed in a new study.
In fact, pregnant women should avoid even small amounts of caffeine,
according to an article in the journal BMJ analyzing 48 research reports.
Caffeine raises people’s heart rate and raises blood pressure,
both of which have a negative effect on the baby during pregnancy.
Experts from the University of Rekiyak in Iceland reviewed data from 37 observational
research reports published since 2000,
as well as 11 more articles that analyzed research into the effects of caffeine during pregnancy.
All 11 articles were published after 1998.
After reviewing all the data and facts, the researchers determined that even a small amount of caffeine
for pregnant women can increase the risk of miscarriage, miscarriage after a few weeks, and weight loss.
The findings contradict recommendations from the United States, Europe, and the European Commission,
which states that pregnant women can consume moderate amounts of caffeine (equivalent to 2 cups of coffee) without any risk.
The researchers said that the current recommendations need to be thoroughly reviewed in light of the current findings.
After reviewing research reports on caffeine use and abortion (there were 9 of them),
the researchers found that 9 reports showed a significant relationship between the two,
but there was no direct link between pregnant women. How much caffeine can be a risk factor?
After reviewing 4 out of 5 research reports on pregnancy termination after 20 weeks,
the researchers found that if women consumed large amounts of caffeine, the risk increased fivefold.
7 out of 10 research reports on the relationship between low birth weight and caffeine
in children showed that caffeine use increases the risk of low birth weight in children.
It should be noted that the Icelandic researchers
did not review the control trials and these results are based on observational research reports.
On the other hand, medical experts have long said that
it is not necessary to give up tea and coffee completely during pregnancy.
He said that caffeine can be used during pregnancy in moderation.
“Moderation is the key. If you’re addicted to too much tea or coffee,
it’s a good idea to reduce that amount during pregnancy,” she said.
“Keep in mind that not only tea or coffee contains caffeine,
but also chocolate and certain medicines,” he said.
Experts say that caffeine consumption raises blood pressure and heart rate and these are the factors
that need to be avoided during pregnancy, while it is even more difficult for newborns to metabolize caffeine,
resulting in their Sleep patterns are affected and they can be uncomfortable.
