I am 7 weeks pregnant & I was wondering if it is safe to eat chicken lo mein with msg in it?

I am 7 weeks pregnant & I was wondering if it is safe to eat chicken lo mein with msg in it?

Less MSG, better: I don't believe there is a big risk of msg in regard to pregnancy, but generally the less chemicals you put in your body the better especially when you are in early pregnancy. It is regarded as safe by the fda, but I would minimize consumption, especially during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.
Good luck and congratulations! Read more

Am 16 weeks pregnant and I love chineese food. Is it ok to have it once in a while? Will the MSG in chineese food affect baby development?

Am 16 weeks pregnant and I love chineese food. Is it ok to have it once in a while? Will the MSG in chineese food affect baby development?

I think you're fine: The better Chinese restaurants do not add this flavor enhancer. Monosodium glutamate is the sodium salt of one of the most common building blocks of your own body, and the "pop" notion that it is horrible for you has resisted scientific demonstration. Congratulations on your pregnancy; this would be a great time to generally eat well and manage your weight. Best wishes. Read more

Is it safe to eat non-organic foods during my pregnancy?

Is it safe to eat non-organic foods during my pregnancy?

Yes: Decreasing the amount of harmful chemicals and pesticides during pregnancy is a good idea, however some foods are not exposed to the same level of chemicals as others. Those without thick a protective outer cover are more susceptible during the growing process and therefore require more chemicals and pesticides e.g. Blueberries, strawberries.

Is it safe to eat sushi while pregnant.?

Is it safe to eat sushi while pregnant.?

Raw fish?: A pregnant woman "can" eat sushi, but it is safer to eat other foods instead of sushi. One reason is the mercury in fish. A person who eats more than 2 servings of fish a week may be taking in too much mercury. A second reason is that sushi often has uncooked seafood in it. Uncooked seafood can contain live viruses, bacteria, and parasites; but cooking the food usually kills those things. Read more

Is it safe to eat squid ink pasta/squid ink paella during pregnancy? Currently 5 months pregnant.

Yes: Yes, it is probably ok. As you probably have seen, the biggest concern with fish is that there may be high levels of mercury, which can potentially be harmful. It may be helpful to check with your local food agency because mercury levels in fish are rated, for example albacore tuna and swordfish from the Gulf of Mexico are rated at higher mercury levels. Depends on where the fish comes from. Read more

Other fish such as salmon and tuna should be eaten sparingly, no more than 1-2 times a week. Make sure you are drinking enough water, at least 2 liters a day. Congratulations Read more
