How Alcohol Effects Neural Development - continued

I usually do a little more than just the first two visuals and associated points - if I can keep them focused.  Specifically, 

A lot of people seem set against accepting FASD.  It really bewilders me.  I mean some of them have personal reasons I'm sure - not wanting to accept that they or someone they know may have been impacted by prenatal exposure, their own or someone else's struggles with alcohol addiction, but some just seem set against it for no reason at all.  Why is it so hard for some people to accept that FASD does exist?  Theres a question of the week (month, year, life) for you.  Does anyone else see this persistent denial?  Do you understand it?  If so, can you explain it to me?


  1. Alcohol can have a devastating effect on the brain of an adolescent. It can cause alterations in the functioning and the structure of the developing brain. Alcohol also slows down the cerebral cortex as it works with the information from a person's senses. Drug Rehab Center South Florida is a well known place for addicts who want to recover from addiction

  2. Bliss Recovery- I often look at the studies about how alcohol impacts adolescents and wonder how people can accept that it is bad for teens to drink because it affects their brain development and then turn around and insist that drinking during pregnancy does not do the same to the fetus. It just leaves me stunned each time!!
