Nanny Advises Pregnant Women To Live In A Bubble

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. 

On the list of "dangerous" products are; tinned foods, ready meals, shower gel and new cars.

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?

Also on the list, as per the BBC:
  • 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!

    Cue Scottish accent:
    Doomed! We're all doomed!

    Stop every single activity because, after all, we really don't know enough about the long term effects of anything, even life itself, to be able to conduct an accurate risk assessment.

    This is another example of an "official" body that feels it needs to be saying something, any bloody thing, just to be seen to justify its very existence.

    Nanny et al; please piss off and leave us alone; we managed OK for umpteen centuries before you even existed.

  3. So presumably it is forbidden to wash, do the laundry or clean the house. Cleanliness now has no proximity to godliness.

  4. Hang on, Adrian. If my memory is right, Private Fraser was an undertaker, so it would not have been in his interests to support Nanny-statism. His quote would have been "Doomed! You're all doomed!"
