Studies have shown that women who drink alcohol during pregnancy may cause one -sixth child to have birth defects.
Britain tracked nearly 14,000 children and evaluated whether there were symptoms that could mean fetal alcoholic dysfunction.
A total of 17%found signs of life, which may include insufficient growth, clear facial features, and damage to learning.
Studies have also shown that 79%of children have exposed to some extent during pregnancy.A charity of a person who aid people affected by FASD stated that the survey results of the University of Bristol and the University of Kadiff showed that the problem was "generally amazing."
However, others expressed cautious attitude towards the results of the survey, saying that these discoveries did not prove that these symptoms were caused by drinking during pregnancy.Almost one -fifth of the children who were checked for the dysfunction said they did not contact alcohol during pregnancy.
The British Pregnancy Advisory Office (BPAS) urged to take a prudent attitude towards the results of the investigation, saying that many defects related to the pregnancy and social development bureau may be symptoms of other situations, or related to other socio -economic factors.
Researchers have developed a screening tool for data and define at least three different learning or behavioral areas. There are problems with or without physical abnormalities.These abnormalities include insufficient growth and facial features, such as thin upper lip and small eyes, as well as behavior and learning problems.
Dr. Cheryl Mc QUIRE, a researcher at the University of Bristel University of Popular disease and alcohol -related results, led the research and published in the magazine of "Prevention Medicine".Dr. McQueir said: "Our results show that a large number of children obtain the characteristics that are consistent with FASD by screening. The result is based on the screening tool, and the screening tool is not the same as the formal diagnosis."The alcohol use rate is high, and the symptoms related to FASD show that British family autonomy may be a serious public health problem.
"These results are important, because without the estimation of the incidence of diseases and AIDS, the understanding will still be very low, and it is still difficult for children, adolescents, and adults to find the diagnosis and it is difficult to obtain possible support."British drinking level before giving birth to the fourth place in the world, but this research is the first person to be estimated to have alcoholic poisoning.
Sandra Butcher, CEO of NO-FASUK, said that he needs to provide more support for "each level"."This research showed light in the face of extremely wide and basically avoided public health crisis," she said."As the submitted by the person’s own recognition, this study did not prove any causal relationship between pregnancy drinking and recording development results, and may cause unnecessary anxiety between pregnant women and parents."
"Many women have been drunk before they discover pregnancy. If this survey may cause some women to consider terminating pregnancy, it is not good for anyone."British chief medical officer’s consultation opinion pointed out that women who are pregnant or considering that pregnancy should not drink alcohol to minimize the risks facing the baby.
It recommends that if women only drink a small amount of alcohol before knowing whether they are pregnant or before pregnancy, the risk of harm may be very low.
Dr. James Doidge, a senior researcher at the Institute of Child Health of the University of London, said: "Screening and testing is designed to screen those who are unlikely to get sick.
