NSE comments on foetal alcohol spectrum disorder link with epilepsy
Professor John Duncan, NSE's medical director, has made a statement on the recent study which has found a link between foetal alcohol spectrum disorder and epilepsy.
In response to the article, Professor John Duncan said: "It is well recognised that alcohol can damage the brain, and it is also well known that brain damage may lead to the development of epilepsy. This study indicates that alcohol abuse during pregnancy can be associated with the child developing epilepsy, and is a further reason for the pregnant mother to not take alcohol during pregnancy."
