Streissguth, Ann Pytkowicz; And Others
Developmental Psychology, v25 n1 p3-11 Jan 1989
Multiple regression analyses on data from 421 children indicated that mother's use of more than 1.5 ounces (approximately three drinks) of alcohol per day during pregnancy was significantly related to average IQ decrement at four years of age of almost five IQ points even after adjustment for numerous variables. Readers cautioned against using data to describe "safe" drinking levels. (RH)
