Rachel Weisz is pissed some people off when she said that it was fine for pregnant women to enjoy a glass of wine after the first three months. Medical experts think she should shut her trap.
Rachel went on to say, “I mean in Europe they drink it”. That was a dumb reason. UK guidelines currently say that a pregnant woman can drink one or two small glasses of wine a week. In North American it is advised to completely abstain from booze altogether.
Sharon Fleisher, founder of the National Organization of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, said: “Damage to a fetus can be caused throughout the whole nine months of pregnancy. I think that the comment that she made is dangerous. It is very irresponsible because she is not an expert and she doesn’t know the full effects alcohol can have on an unborn child.
“She is also wrong about Europe because as of October 2007, France is putting warning labels on all stock in the shops.”
They are basically saying that Rachel doesn’t know what she’s talking about and should shut her yapper. Personally, she’s an actress so I’m not sure why people are so upset. Actors aren’t known for being intelligent creatures and besides it’s not like she’s advising women to get drunk. People are so damn touchy these days. On that note, I need a drink.
