Birmingham: A study has shown that a diet rich in fruits and vegetables can reduce miscarriage by 61 percent.
In the Toomeys-funded study, researchers at the University of Birmingham reviewed 20 studies of 60,000 women that looked at their eating habits in the months before and shortly after conception. .
The study found that women who ate a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, seafood, dairy products, eggs, and grains during pregnancy had a lower risk of pregnancy than women who did not eat these foods. Whereas women whose diet consisted mostly of processed foods had double the risk of miscarriage.
Experts believe that anti-inflammatory foods that are rich in antioxidants can help maintain a healthy pregnancy. Whereas foods that are known to cause inflammation (such as meat, processed foods and refined carbohydrates) increase the risk of miscarriage.
A study found that a diet high in fruit during pregnancy reduced miscarriage by 61 percent.
Women who ate more vegetables during that time had a 41 percent lower miscarriage rate, compared to a 37 percent reduction in dairy, 33 percent in grains, and 19 percent in eggs and seafood. happened
