A glass of wine a day reduces a woman’s chances to conceive

A group of researchers under the leadership of Ellen Mikkelsen from Aarhus University came to the conclusion that 240 milliliters, or one large glass of wine a day has a negative impact on the chances of a woman getting pregnant.

The study showed that in women, the average weekly drink seven large glasses of wine or 14 glasses a smaller volume, the chances of pregnancy fell by 18 percent. A similar effect had two bottles of beer or two glasses of spirits daily. According to scientists, this is evidenced by the results of a study in which participated more than 6 thousand women in age from 21 to 45 years of age seeking to conceive.

According to experts, the obtained results indicate that every fifth woman dreams to get pregnant, but drinking a glass of wine a day, can not achieve this goal because of alcohol abuse. The researchers admit that not all representatives of the beautiful half of humanity can guess about those relationships — they may feel that every day they drink too much, and it has no effect on their reproductive abilities. However, scientists recommend that women seeking to conceive, to give up alcohol or, at least, to reduce its consumption to a minimum.

The results of their work, scientists reported in the journal BMJ.

Recently, various scientific publications published many works dedicated to various negative consequences of alcohol abuse. In particular, recently, a group of American scientists from Texas said about the negative impact of alcohol on memory, and scientists from Canada noted that abstinence from alcohol in combination with an active lifestyle can really significantly extend human life.

Earlier, a group of experts led by Tim Stockwell exposed a number of studies that prove the benefits of alcohol. In particular, scientists have noticed that in some of these studies as “abstainers” were involved in people previously abandoned drink, and to prove with their help, use of alcohol, at least not quite correct.
