@KoiKove:  daily chocolate reduces MC by 19% (YAY!) – Enough said! 😉  Thanks for the site. Hopefully if work calms down a little later I’ll read through it.

@KoiKove:  I find the food thing facinating since I am allergic to eggs, dairy, seafood, & I cannot eat most chocolate due to previously mentioned allergies. When I get a chance I will visit the website and have a more in depth look, currently I am 10 weeks 4 days pregnant.

I’m allergic to dairy but I eat so many eggs it’s ridiculous and now I’ll be ramping up my fruit and veggie intake!! And dark chocolate, yes!

Interesting site, thanks for sharing. A few things to keep in mind:

– I think it’s a little misleading that the heading is “What Causes Miscarriage” when a lot of these are correlations, not causal links. In other words, there’s a difference between causing the miscarriage (like the first category, the chromosomal abnormalities) and causing a risk of miscarriage (i.e. the high butter intake), and the list doesn’t do a good job of separating them out. Butter consumption almost certainly doesn’t cause miscarriage directly, but it’s likely to be associated with other health and lifestyle behaviors that can make it difficult to carry a pregnancy to term, etc., just as high fruit consumption is probably protective because it’s likely to be associated with a generally healthy lifestyle, not because fruit on its own protects from miscarriage.

– That said, it makes a great point that many of these factors are at least somewhat under our control and risks can be mitigated.

– And, of course, a lot of the diet advice is really useful.

Just don’t assume that eating chocolate by itself makes your risk of miscarriage lower. There’s a good chance that the lowered risk is due to a lurking factor, such as “people who frequently consume chocolate tend to have higher disposable incomes,” and it’s well-known that higher income correlates to better health outcomes.
