The effect of Caffeine during pregnancy can produce undesirable effects later in life. Researchers at the Del Monte Institute for Neuroscience at the University of Rochester Medical Centre have found out this.
Recent research by a team of scientists indicate important changes in brain pathways, in those who consumed caffeine during pregnancy. This later could lead to behavioral problems in life. A Report published on Sci-News, dated 10th Feb 2021 says so.
Caffeine and its effects
According to the report, Caffeine is a very widely used and potent neuromodulator that easily crosses the placental barrier. Previous studies on the effect of Caffeine during Pregnancy have found that it can have a negative effect on Pregnancy.
