WHY YOU SHOULD AVOID EATING LARGE AMOUNTS OF LICORICE WHEN PREGNANT

WHY YOU SHOULD AVOID EATING LARGE AMOUNTS OF LICORICE WHEN PREGNANT

Here is an interesting little tidbit I found today ….

A study taken by Professor Secki found when pregnant women ate LARGE amounts of licorice during pregnancy raised their odds of their unborn baby becoming more anxious , having a lower IQ and behavioral issues .By  the age of  8 he saw a 2/3  increase rate of ADD and anxiety from the licorice eaters compared to the children of non licorice eating moms. The thought behind this is a compound found in licorice helps break down the protective barrier which allows stress hormones to pass easily from mother to baby. For more on this study click on link above .
