How Your Yogurt Fix Could Be Giving Your Unborn Baby Asthma!

Tue, September 20, 2011 12:26pm EST by 3 Comments


Moms-to-be who eat low-fat yogurt are 60 percent more likely to have children with asthma than those who don’t — according to a bizarre new study!

Scientists at Harvard School of Public Health think the fat in yogurt helps protect babies from allergies — and women who try to be too healthy are exposing their unborn children to future illness!

More than 60,000 women were studied by the research team, from pregnancy to when their children were seven years old.

The results showed milk helps to war off asthma – but low fat dairy products do the opposite!

The scientists admit they don’t know exactly what links yogurt to asthma — but they suspect fatty dairy products help to program the immune systems of unborn babies.

Earlier research out of the same school showed eating low-fat dairy products can increase the risk of infertility!

So it’s pretty clear — dairy fat is a GOOD thing when you’re pregnant!

What do you think about this, HollyMoms? Do you believe it and will it make you change your yogurt habits?

Hey Beth, how about not having babies? This world is plenty crowded as it is, population-wise and problem-wise. Imagine how much better the world would be if people directed their focus on people already here instead of selfishly focusing it all on whoever falls out of their vagina.

Wow, Lydia – bitter? Some of us don’t just “selfishly focus on whatever falls out of our vaginas.” Some of us are responsible contributors to society who not only work within our communities to better life for ourselves & those “people already here,” but for FUTURE generations – ya know, our children. In fact, some of us actually assiduously plan on having healthy children in loving & stable homes; some of us even bring other peoples’ children into our homes and hearts – all the while helping others. The population is increasing, but population growth rate continues to decline – particularly in the Western world. Unfortunately, it’s not all about how many babies are being born; it’s who is having them. Those who espouse the rhetoric that intelligent, ethical, healthy & functional people should NOT reproduce in lieu of those who are ignorant, uneducated, irresponsible leeches on society – or should simply exist to “focus” on the care of said ever-multiplying leeches – are the selfish ones. Your philosophy leads to realities straight out of campy comedy – ever seen “Idiocracy”? You should. Your unfounded self-righteousness aside, I agree wholeheartedly with the sentiment that looking outside oneself to support the community you call home is very important. While I certainly know people who should not be parents (in any fashion), a tirade against us “breeders” en masse actually shows a decided lack of intelligence on your part. Any thinking person knows that being a GOOD parent is the most unselfish endeavor one can undertake & is certainly NOT something to be castigated for. In the long run, maybe it’s a good thing people who think in the manner you’ve presented yourself to don’t have children. Oh, just a thought – maybe don’t read through a site that seems to be geared toward those “selfish moms”….
As to the article here, I found this site/page looking into information on allergic reactions to yogurt for my daughters (one bio & one foster, both under 2). Honestly, I don’t think low-fat anything is good while pregnant. It shouldn’t be about how fatty something is, but rather how much of anything you are taking in. I would think it would be obvious to pregnant women that eating whole, healthy foods – even fat-containing foods – is more important than dieting based on an unrealistic idea of maintaining your pre-baby waistline with a growing baby in your uterus!

Ugh, being pregnant is hard enough when it comes to eating the right thing for the baby. Everytime something like this comes out, it makes it even harder!
