The National Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (NOFAS) is outraged by Emily Oster’s deeply flawed and harmful advice about alcohol and pregnancy in her book, “Expecting Better: Why the Conventional Pregnancy Wisdom Is Wrong-and What You Really Need to Know.  In a Wall Street Journal article promoting the book, she not only falsely claims that drinking wine during pregnancy is fine, she actively encourages pregnant women to drink alcohol, writing, “the evidence overwhelmingly shows that light drinking is fine.”  This is profoundly dangerous.
