Hopeful Moms Should Skip the Coffee

This is one of those reports they will come right back and reverse in a few days/weeks, so I wanted to include it in order to point out just how trustworthy "mainstream" science is.

According to a study done on 9000 women who had undergone in vitro fertilization, drinking more than four cups of coffee per day lessened their chances of conception by over 25%. Drinking alcohol at least three times per week produced the same results. Smoking and obesity lessened the chances even more. Those who participated had received in vitro fertilization between 1985 and 1995.

One doctor cited previous research when she claimed there is "no convincing support" that coffee intake poses any risk. 


A spokesman for the coffee industry agreed.
