Caffeine During Pregnancy Linked to Childhood Weight Gain

The Norwegian Mother and Child Cohort Study (MoBa) study found caffeine intake during pregnancy can lead to a mother's child being obese as a child and throughout his/her life.

Additionally, "Previous research indicates that pregnant women who consume more than 200 milligrams of caffeine per day are more than twice as likely to have a miscarriage than those who don't consume caffeine." - Quote by Dana Leigh Smith
