Pregnant women who fast during Ramadan tend to have smaller babies and are more prone to learning disabilities in adulthood, according to new research.
As reported independent.co.uk, the scientists also found that women have 10 percent less likely to give birth to boys, if they are fasting during Ramadan.
The most obvious trend is that if fasting is done early in pregnancy. Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, which was welcomed by all Muslims throughout the world by running fast.
Since fasting during Ramadan is one of the five pillars of Islam and is a central part of Muslim culture, many women may fear losing the relationship with their community, or would feel guilty if they do not observe Ramadan.
This study uses census data from the Iraq and Uganda. Douglas Almond of Columbia University and Bhashkar Mazumder, Federal Research Bank of Chicago, the study investigators, concludes: “The level of disability up about 20 percent higher, the specific mental disability showed substantially larger effects. We detected no difference in outcome is appropriate when the design the same applies to non-Muslims. “
This study is only as medical signs indicating that pregnant women should not fast. After all, in Islam there are exceptions for certain people who should not fast. If you want to keep fasting, consult with your gynecologist. Especially, for women who are entering the early stages of pregnancy.
