Bacon and Eggs Idle Diet for Pregnant Women

Bacon and Eggs Idle Diet for Pregnant Women

A recent research published in the journal of the Federation of the American Societies for Experimental Biology claimed that eating a plate of bacon and eggs could help pregnant women boost the intelligence of their unborn child.

The nutrient, choline, plays a vital role in helping babies in the womb develop areas of their brains linked to memory. However, previous studies have also pointed that large dose of choline could help reduce the risk of heart problems.

The study claimed that the test on mice prompted that the diet of a pregnant mother, especially choline in that diet, can alter the epigenetic switches that control brain development in the fetus.

Liver, milk, chicken and nuts serve as other food items having high levels of the nutrient.

Dr Gerald Weissmann, editor-in-chief of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology journal, which published the research, said, "We may never be able to call bacon a health food with a straight face, but [similar studies] are already making us rethink what we consider healthy and unhealthy".
