2 Alcohol is a serious teratogen that has been around for ages and is also being misused by
abusing it. People have formed a habit of consuming alcohol like it is our everyday h2O which is
why it has become a big issue due to the effects of it. The overuse of alcohol can lead to short
and long term effect. The use of alcohol does not only have effect on everyday people but also
on pregnant women. In psychology, this is described as teratogens. A drug or substance that is
capable of affecting the development of a fetus, causing birth defects. During pregnancy, if the
substance is being consumed, it leads to what we call Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS). Consuming
alcohol during pregnancy is not safe for both the mother and baby, but it is mostly putting the
baby?s health at risk. This teratogen causes physical, cognitive and psychological abnormalities
to the baby. Whatever a pregnant woman consumes, the baby also consumes but in a much
faster rate because it is being passed through the placenta. The issue with drinking while
pregnant is very serious. Women need to know that Alcohol and Pregnancy do not go together. RUNNING head: CLINICAL TERATOLOGY ASSIGNMENT: ALCOHOL
