Ultrasound Images Suggest A Scary Effect Of Smoking On Unborn Babies

Image +text source: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/0...98342822706450


Face and mouth movements of a fetus carried by a mother who smoked daily during pregnancy (above) compared to those of a fetus whose mother did not smoke.

_________

Quote:
The effects of smoking on the fetus's hand and mouth movements are similar to those seen among fetuses whose mothers are highly stressed or depressed. However, the effects of nicotine exposure appear to be considerably more dramatic.

Why? The researchers hypothesize that when a fetus is exposed to nicotine, its central nervous system, which controls facial movements, does not "develop at the same rate and in the same manner" as in normal fetuses, according to a Monday press release from Durham.

I thought it was interesting because it shows an ultrasound of a baby's face.

Why, do you smoke?

Very true, LyP. Very true. It's sad that the child has to suffer from the selfish @ss parents who can only think for themselves.

Sadly, any idiot can have a baby....
