Alcohol Consumption During Pregnancy

  • Harold Kalter
Chapter

Abstract

Alcohol has always aroused mixed feelings; it is both a blessing and a curse. There is no shortage of apropos quotations from the Bible, but these are the alpha and the omega, or in the Hebrew alphabet, the alef and the tav. Genesis says, may God give you of heaven’s dew and of earth’s richness – an abundance of grain and new wine. But Deuteronomy says, wine is the poison of dragons, and the cruel venom of asps.
