    Coffee raises miscarriage risk

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Pregnant women should consider avoiding caffeine, say researchers who found even moderate consumption in early pregnancy raises the miscarriage risk.

    Currently, the Food Standards Agency sets an upper limit during pregnancy of 300mg - or four cups of coffee a day.

    But an American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology study found more than 200mg of caffeine a day doubled the risk compared to abstainers.

    Everything in moderation is a true and tested formula. Yes, even coffee it would seem. :(

    Theyve actually eased up a bit - when I was pregnant, 17 years ago, the recommended limit was only two cups. To me it was harder than giving up smoking....
