Transcript

In previous volumes I’ve talked about the benefits of coffee consumption, but what about during pregnancy? How much is too much? Should you not drink any, and just stick to water? Or can you get away with a short, tall, venti, or grande brewed coffee every day?
A review was published last year and they recommended to stay under 300 mg of caffeine a day, so a daily grande is too much.

To see any graphs, charts, graphics, images, and quotes to which Dr. Greger may be referring watch the above video. This is just an approximation of the audio contributed by veganmontreal.
