I loved Emily Oster's article
), which looked at the actual studies that examine drinking alcohol & eating deli meat during pregnancy. (She also wrote a book that I will be buying).
I am looking for websites, articles, books, or anything else. My ideal source is not an actual study - it's an article that discusses multiple studies, the results, possible flaws, limitations, etc in the study.
I would also be interested in a website where I can look up a food or medication and find out whether it is generally considered safe for pregnancy. Ideally, the website would also include information on why that conclusion was reached - e.g., it would distinguish between something that is known to be unsafe, something thought to be unsafe, and something that we don't have data about.
