Is it safe to smoke weed while pregnant?

Over the last decade, there’s been a rise in cannabis-use during pregnancy in order to combat severe morning sickness. However, a new study in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention shows that the psychoactive compounds in weed can cross the placental barrier. This exposure can interfere with the fetal brain and lead to cancers of the central nervous system. (Duke University)

The mouth is home to countless bacteria that can enter the bloodstream, respiratory tract, and even heart valves. Managing your oral health is a simple and effective strategy to block potential infections. (Yale School of Medicine)
