“Stop Taking Bread And Tea” – Doctor Warns Pregnant Women

Popular social media Nigeria doctor, Dr Olufunmilayo on twitter has advised pregnant women to stop taking bread and tea.

In his post on the platform, the medical doctor gave different reason why women that are pregnant should stay way from the meal, which happens to be a delight for most Nigerians.

One of the reasons he stated is that taking too much bread, tea & Coffee prevents a pregnant woman’s body from absorbing Iron.

The Tweet Reads;

 “If you are pregnant Taking a lot of bread and tea may be harmful for you Too much bread and tea together makes it hard for your body to absorb iron. Iron deficiency in pregnancy can cause: •Tiny baby •Premature delivery •Baby dead before/after delivery. RT pls. Save a life”

“Pregnancy on its own causes low blood levels for many women. Some of these women are placed on iron tablets to boost their blood levels. Now tea/coffee are known to make it difficult for the body to absorb iron.

And when taken with something like bread; the impact is worse. The advice is usually if you can: •Cut down on too much bread and tea together especially if pregnant and you have low iron or you are on iron tablets. •If you must have tea/coffee/bread, give yourself some hours before/after taking iron tablets. I hope this helps. Thank you.”
