Buy Into the Study That Says Booze Is Better For Baby Boys?

A recent British study found that pregnant women who indulged in one or two drinks per week while expecting their sons had better behaved boys. It said:

Boys born to mothers who drank lightly were 40% less likely to have conduct problems and 30% less likely to be hyperactive, even when the differences between social and economic circumstances were taken into account. They also scored more highly in vocabulary tests and were better able to identify shapes, colours, letters and numbers.

Do you buy into this theory?

No. What else was a part of the study? Were the women all from the same are? What else did they have in common? What genetic factors were included?I'm ok with a glass of wine during pregnancy, and I'm ok with someone completely abstaining.

One study in isolation doesn't prove anything. It doesn't say anything about what causes these effects. It could be that boys are better behaved as children, but have some kind of impairment later.
