MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, November 20, 2008 31 advertising feature rejuvenate NEW STUDY HAS FOUND A LINK BETWEEN CAFFEINE AND BABIES WITH LOW BIRTH WEIGHTS. Recent British research has suggested pregnant women should keep their consumption of coffee, tea and cola drinks to a minimum if they want to minimise their chances of having a baby with a low birth weight. The study, involving 2635 women between eight and 12 weeks' pregnant, asked about their dietary habits and monitored caffeine levels in saliva during check-ups. Women who consumed between 100 and 199mg of coffee each day faced a 20 per cent increased risk of having a baby with a relatively low birth weight compared with those whose intake was less than 0mg each day. The risk rose to over cent with a daily inta to299mgandto50p for those consuming over 300mg. A cup of coffee contains about 100mg of caffeine, while tea has half this amount, although this varies according to the strength of the brew and the brand of the product. Published in the British Medical Journal, what is known as the CARE study recommends women reduce caffeine intake before conception and throughout pregnancy. While previous research has shown caffeine crosses the placenta into the foetus, evidence for low birth weight has been muddied by factors like smoking and alcohol consumption. This is the first study to draw a link with tea, which comprised 60 per cent of the caffeine consumed by the women in the study. On the basis of these findings, the British Food Standard's agency has advised pregnant women to reduce their maximum caffeine intake from 300 mg per day to 200mg, approximately two mugs of coffee. A careful Caffeine is present in coffee, chocolate, cocoa, cola, energy drinks, many teas and some over- the-counter medications It is a mild stimulant affecting the brain and nervous system and usually makes people feel more alert and sometimes a little warmer Regularly consuming caffeine can lead to insomnia, nervousness and headaches. As a diuretic, it causes the body to lose fluids. None of these situations are beneficial to pregnancy During pregnancy, caffeine can pass to the baby through the placenta and umbilical cord and, after birth, through the breast milk. Caffeine can also hamper the body's ability to absorb iron if drunk within half an hour of a meal. Pregnant women often find their taste for caffeine reduced during pregnancy, particularly the first trimester. Cutting back on caffeine can lead to headaches and fatigue, so ease into it by cutting back half a cup each day. ] [UTTING OUT CAFFEINE Reduce caffeine intake before conception and throughout pregnancy. with that cuppa 2106436K wk21 "all hip hop styles taught by industry professionals!" classes: Tues: j.f.h (jazz funk hiphop) open 6.30pm Students must register 6:30pm Wed: break beginners 6.30pm hip hop open 7.30pm Thurs: hip hop youth 6.30pm hip hop beginners 8.00pm 17 Deane St BURWOOD 0403 961 871 www.q2dance.com firstname.lastname@example.org 2040323K price: $15 per class, $100 per 10 class pass Bring this advertisement for $5 off your first class!
