This (almost) Makes Me Want To Get Pregnant.

WooHoooo!!! Eating bacon makes your baby smarter!!! That almost makes up for the no caffeine, no sushi rules. ;-) Sadly, eating bacon does not make US smarter....but maybe the world of science will keep working on that one. ;-)

If you're curious about how it all works, check out the article below (from the UK Daily Mail newspaper)

Bacon and eggs could help pregnant women boost their baby's intelligence

Women are usually given a list of foods to avoid during pregnancy and it is well documented that a pregnant woman's diet can affect her unborn baby.

Scientists have found that eating a plate of bacon and eggs could help pregnant women boost the intelligence of their unborn child
But the new study suggests that a chemical in pork products and eggs can help the baby's growing brain to develop.
Scientists at the University of North Carolina have discovered that the micronutrient, called choline, is vital in helping babies in the womb develop parts of their brains linked to memory and recall.

In a study of the effects of choline on the brains of baby mice, those fed small doses of choline while in the womb had genetic differences to those given large amounts.

Dr Gerald Weissmann, editor-in-chief of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology journal, which published the research told The Telegraph: 'We may never be able to call bacon a health food with a straight face, but [similar studies] are already making us rethink what we consider healthy and unhealthy.'

Other foods that contain a high level of the nutrient include liver, milk, chicken and nuts.

Previous studies have suggested that large doses of choline could help protect against heart problems
