Drinking and conception

Drinking at conception boosts diabetes risk for baby

This finding:
Babies conceived by women who drink alcohol around the time of conception face dramatically increased risks of type 2 diabetes and obesity in early middle age, a University of Queensland
study has found.

The discovery was made by School of Biomedical Sciences scientist Associate Professor Karen Moritz during research into how events – particularly alcohol consumption – before and during pregnancy affect the long-term health of offspring.
is only based on "laboratory rat model", but still, it does sound a potential worry for humans.
