Vegans stupid while pregnant again

B12 deficiency causes pre-term birth (higher risk of disease, death) and lower birth weight (yeah, like smoking).

Really at this point it’s a controlled late abortion than a birth, isn’t it?

Globally, preterm birth and low birth weight (LBW) cause more than a third of the 2.9 million neonatal deaths each year, and prevention of these events is an important component of reducing the mortality rate among children younger than 5 years of age (1, 2). The causes of preterm birth, however, are complex, and few interventions have been successful in preventing it (3).


Eat some fucking cheese. So complex.

tfw Mother Nature hates you.

However, in a recent meta-analysis, Haider and Bhutta (10) concluded that multiple-micronutrient supplementation may reduce the risk of LBW and the number of stillbirths but not the risk of preterm birth or neonatal mortality. Thus, a more targeted micronutrient supplementation practice may be warranted.

Won’t work.

You can’t supplement stupidity.

If they’d rather the baby die than get over themselves, they don’t deserve kids.

I love the ineffectual response of “supplements won’t work, but our solution is more of them”.

Your intellectual betters, behold!

Importantly, B12 deficiency may be a proxy for inadequate nutritional status, and it is possible that some of our findings are related to nutritional status and not specifically to B12. A predominantly plant-based diet is low in B12 but also other nutrients, such as vitamin D and zinc, that to some degree may be associated with preterm birth (42–44). We did not have information on dietary intake or blood levels of these nutrients. Nutritional status could explain the present finding of an association between B12 and birth weight in low- and middle-income countries but not high-income countries. However, lower vitamin B12 levels were associated with higher risk of preterm birth irrespective of country income. It seems less likely that nutritional status can fully explain this finding.

Vegetarianism: the Third World baby death diet.

Indian women generally have lower dietary intakes of B12 because of their mainly vegetarian diet, making them susceptible to B12 deficiency (46). Additionally, Indian newborns are among the smallest in the world (45). Our findings suggest that pregnancies already at the greatest risk of resulting in small newborns were the ones that were most vulnerable to low levels of B12. The association between B12 and the risk of preterm birth was consistent across studies in both high-income and low- and middle-income countries, and generalization to countries not studied may be feasible.

Stop eating vegan junk food.

In line with our findings, maternal obesity has been associated with B12 deficiency in several populations (47, 48). It has been hypothesized that this association is due to altered fat distribution and metabolism in overweight women compared with normal-weight women (47). Maternal weight is positively correlated with newborn weight (49), and failure to adjust for maternal weight may underestimate a positive association between B12 and birth weight.

Clearly Mother Nature is fatphobic.

Vitamin D supplementation for women during pregnancy

Put down the leafy greens.
“However, it appears that when vitamin D and calcium are combined, the risk of preterm birth is increased.”

Insight into vegan menopause.
“Drinking whole fat milk and eating ice cream appears to be better for women trying to become pregnant than a diet consisting of low-fat dairy products such as skim milk and yogurt, according to new research published in Human Reproduction journal. Researchers in the United States have found a link between a low-fat dairy diet and increased risk of anovulatory infertility.”
You don’t have to tell me twice to eat ice cream, mate.
“Further, lactose (the main carbohydrate in milk and dairy products) may not affect fertility within the usual range of intake levels in humans.”
Good to know.
“Consumption of iron supplements and nonheme iron from other sources may decrease the risk of ovulatory infertility.”
Yes, my favourite iron supplement is called steak. Recommend.
Especially with three times “too much” garlic butter.
“Folic acid appeared to explain part of the association between multivitamin supplement use and risk of ovulatory infertility.”
Sorry but I don’t trust Crunchy Nut cornflakes with the fate of my future children’s health.
“Dairy consumption was not significantly correlated with PCOS. However, after adjustment for confounders, there was an direct relationship between milk consumption and risk of PCOS.”

“the results showed that the intake amounts of Ca, Mg, D vitamin, dairy, fruits and nuts and seeds were remarkably low among the women with PCOS.”

What are they living on, Oreos?

“some evidence on the decreased amount of adiponectine, calcium, D vitamin in the patients suffering from PCOS with having a higher thyroglobulin”


“Numerous studies have demonstrated the association between the diet and its components and risk factors developing various diseases.[] However, previous studies did not address the relationship between nutrition choices and type of diet chosen by the patients.[]”
“According to existing data, women trying to achieve pregnancy are encouraged to increase consumption of whole grains, omega-3 fatty acids, fish, and soy and to reduce consumption of trans fats and red meat. In addition, a daily multivitamin that contains folic acid before and during pregnancy may not only prevent birth defects, but also improve the chance of achieving and maintaining a pregnancy. In contrast, there is limited evidence supporting an association betweenvitamin D and human fecundity outcomes despite promising evidence from nonhuman studies.
Yeah because that’s relevant.
Questions for future research included the roles of other types of fat (especially omega-6 and monounsaturated fats) and protein (especially white meat and seafood) on female fertility; particular attention should also be paid to exposure to environmental contaminants in foods. Although much work remains, this review accrued best available evidence to provide practical dietary recommendations for women trying to conceive.”
Bolded valuable parts.
“One approach to minimize the impact of anovulation on fertility is supplementation with progesterone during recruitment, selection and final stages of development of the preovulatory follicle. It is suggested that a minimum of 2.0 ng/mL of progesterone is needed during growth of the preovulatory follicle to achieve P/AI similar to that of cows growing the preovulatory follicle during diestrus.”
But one of the Pills is that….
Does taking that Pill increase odds of pregnancy?
Big if true.
The literature on the relationship between diet and human fertility has greatly expanded over the last decade, resulting in the identification of a few clear patterns. Intake of supplemental folic acid, particularly at doses higher than those recommended for the prevention of neural tube defects, has been consistently related to lower frequency of infertility, lower risk of pregnancy loss, and greater success in infertility treatment. On the other hand and despite promising evidence from animal models, vitamin D does not appear to exert an important role in human fertility in the absence of deficiency.
But most people are deficient….
That’s like saying you can stand outside normally -except when there’s a hurricane.
And there’s currently a hurricane.
Antioxidant supplementation does not appear to offer any benefits to women undergoing infertility treatment, but it appears to be beneficial when it is the male partner who is supplemented.
Reduce genetic load.
However, the available evidence does not allow discerning which specific antioxidants, or at which doses, are responsible for this benefit. Long-chain omega-3 fatty acids appear to improve female fertility, although it remains unclear to what extent contamination of shared food sources, such as fish with high levels of environmental toxicants, can dampen this benefit.
Eat this mercury (sushi fad) it’s good for your baby!
Lastly, adherence to healthy diets favoring seafood, poultry, whole grainsfruits, and vegetables are related to better fertility in women and better semen quality in men.
Could you be a little more specific?
You just named, like, most food.
They’re paid with our taxes, daylight robbery.
The cumulative evidence has also piled against popular hypotheses.
I doubt that.
Sounds like someone wants a juicy research grant.
Dairy and soy, once proposed as reproductive toxicants, have not been consistently related to poor fertility.
Because you refuse to test them separately.
If only a group ate one and not t’uther.
In fact, soy and soy supplements appear to exert a beneficial effect among women undergoing infertility treatment.
Many have low estrogen, next!
Giving people with scurvy vitamin C helps! Next!
Similarly, because data from large, high-quality studies continue to accumulate, the evidence of a potentially deleterious effect of moderate alcohol and caffeine intake on the ability to become pregnant seems less solid than it once did.
But potentially, if you can’t put down the coffee or wine, Barbara, maybe you shouldn’t be having kids? Same goes for men without the energy. Now. Without kids.
Why do narcs consider children a human right?
Sort your energy level out BEFORE kids, at least?
While a complete picture of the role of nutrition on fertility is far from complete, much progress has been made. The most salient gaps in the current evidence include jointly considering female and male diets and testing the most consistent findings in randomized trials.
Fuck, men influence pregnancy? What witchcraft is this?
Their only biological contribution is determined by things that occurred in the years before conception?
Say it isn’t so.
What term could possibly exist to describe this Darwinian fitness between men?
Hold men responsible for their bad habits affecting their innocent child’s health outcomes and literal lifespan and I might be impressed.
Posting will be patchy because of my feelings.
