A biggest confusion when you got pregnant for first time, what to eat and not eat!!!

Let's share here some of the foods that have to be avoided during pregnancy.

1. Don't eat spicy food
2. Fish containing high levels of an industrial pollutant should be avoided.
3. Caffeine consumption can put the pregnant woman to the risk of miscarriage and premature birth.
4. Raw eggs should not be eaten during pregnancy, because they contain Salmonella, a bacteria that causes food borne illness.
5. Consumption of alcoholic beverages causes host of health problems in the baby, including low body weight, learning disabilities, visual problems, deformed organs and other abnormalities.

Papaya during pregnancy

Many people got confused whether to eat papaya during pregnancy.

Papaya can cause miscarriage, it is partially true because Un-ripe papaya contains a white latex which can cause miscarriage.

However, there is nothing wrong with fully ripened Papaya.

But be carefull in choosing it.

yeah me too heared about unripe papaya cause miscarriage because it contains high concentration of latex that can cause uterine contractions which in turn cause a miscarriage.

If you search on this topic on the internet, you will find many contradicting opinions. But on the safer side it is best to avoid it.
