Despite the fact that ever since the human race evolved from the primeval swamp and women started having babies, whilst enduring plagues, famines, wars, drought etc, Nanny has decided that this whole "pregnancy thing" is way too risky.
Step forward the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG), which has decreed that pregnant women should "play it safe" and avoid chemicals found in many common household products.
The "rationale" for RCOG's advice is that, seemingly, no one really knows enough about the chemicals in these products to determine if they pose a risk or not.
Now they tell us!
However, in true Nanny style, RCOG then go on to say that it is unlikely that any of the exposures are truly harmful for most babies and, based on current evidence, it is impossible to give an accurate assessment of risk.
So dare I ask, what was the farking point of publishing an alarmist piece of shite like this if there is no credible scientific evidence to back it up?
- Cosmetic products and toiletries such as moisturisers, shower gel and sunscreen could, theoretically, also pose a chemical risk
- Cleaning products, air fresheners and non-stick frying pans can be added to the hazard list
- Pregnant women might also want to avoid decorating the new baby's room with fresh paint as breathing the fumes may be harmful
Oh, and do not assume natural or herbal products or remedies are safe!
I am amazed that woman have managed to survive pregnancy in the millennia before Nanny came along!
