A High-Fat Diet a Day Equals Increase in Birth Defects

Maternal DietThe “what-not-to-do-during-pregnancy” list is growing.  Already on the list are alcohol, raw fish/meat,  cigarettes, smoked seafood, fish with mercury or fish exposed to industrial pollutants, soft cheeses, unpasteurized milk, pate, caffeine, and unwashed vegetables. However, a new study sponsored by England’s Welcome Trust and the British Heart Foundation shows women who take on a high-fat diet before and during pregnancy will increase the risk of congenital heart defects in offspring.

Congenital heart disease is a disease that results in a problem with the structure of the heart and is the most common type of birth defect. Defects range from problems with the walls of the heart to the arteries and veins near the heart. Congenital heart disease will disrupt the flow of normal blood to the heart. Women with diabetes or woman who are overweight or obese already have a higher risk for their children to obtain congenital heart disease.

Results from the research shows that genes of an unborn offspring can be affected by maternal diet. If you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant, speak to your doctor to find out if you need to make any adjustments to your current diet.

Modern Birth Control Pills Have A Reduced Heart Risk

Recently, researchers have found that newer forms of birth control pills do not increase the risk of heart disease as much as previous generations of birth control pills.

Researchers determined that new forms of birth control pills that have come out in the last decade tend not to raise blood pressure to the same extent as the older forms. Scientists are excited by the findings because it means that one day birth control pills might be used as heart disease prevention in addition to contraception. While more research is needed regarding heart disease prevention, it will no doubt make all women happy to know that birth control pills are improving as made evident by the reduction in risk of heart disease in newer birth control pills.

Researchers also found that modern forms of birth control contain less estrogen which makes them safer while still being effective. In addition, oral contraceptives with certain doses of estrogen are safer for women aged 35 through menopause.

To this day, hormonal contraceptives such as birth control pills, vaginal rings, and patches are still the most common prescribed contraceptives. On average, 11.6 (20%) million American women use hormonal contraceptives. Since the introduction of the birth control pill in the 1960s, over 80 percent of women have used hormonal contraceptives in their lifetime.

Its reassuring for women since the risk of heart disease has always been associated with birth control, and now those risks have been reduced with modern advances in birth control.
