Not true: Grapes are the storehouse of many health promoting phyto-nutrients: poly-phenolic antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. They're rich in polyphenolic phytochemical compound resveratrol-one of the powerful anti-oxidant, which has been found to play a protective role against cancers of colon and prostate, coronary heart disease (chd), degenerative nerve disease, alzheimers, ; viral/fungal infections.

Old wives tale: There is no harm at this stage of pregnancy to eating deeply color grapes. We love our grandmothers but they do not always have access to correct information.
