Vitamin C Helps Pregnant Smokers Have Healthier Babies
 维生素C帮助怀孕的吸烟女性拥有健康婴儿

Smoking during pregnancy poses numerous dangers. Nicotine and other toxins can harm a fetus’s lungs, cause other lasting health problems or trigger preterm birth. Yet some 11 percent of pregnant US women still smoke during the final trimester.孕期吸烟被指出存在很多危害。尼古丁和其他有毒物质能损害胎儿的肺部,引起其他长期性健康问题或者诱发早产。不过在美国,约有11%的孕妇在孕期最后三个月依然吸烟。


 Now a study shows that vitamin C supplements can help alleviate at least some of that in utero harm.现在,有研究显示,维生素C补充剂能至少减轻香烟中有毒物质对子宫内胎儿的伤害。


Researchers randomly assigned 159 pregnant smokers to take either daily vitamin C pills or placebos. They found that, compared with kids of the placebo group, children of moms popping vitamin C were in better health—they wheezed less through their first year of life and had better overall pulmonary function.研究者随机将159名孕妇分配成(两组),每日服用维生素C片剂或安慰剂。【译注:placebo是一种多用于精神疾病上的药剂,无害。】研究人员发现,对比起服用安慰剂的妈妈生的小孩,服用维生素C组妈妈生的孩子健康的状况要好。对比起安慰剂组的小孩,维C组的孩子一岁时呼吸时少有喘息声,而且他们的整体肺功能要好。


And, at least so far, there have been no negative side effects from the pills for mom or child. The study is in the Journal of the American Medical Association. [Cindy T. McEvoy et al, Vitamin C Supplementation for Pregnant Smoking Women and Pulmonary Function in Their Newborn Infants: A Randomized Clinical Trial]. 而且,至少目前为止,美国医学协会期刊的研究认为维C补充剂对母婴都是(安全)无副作用的。【Cindy, T McEvoy等,《维生素C补充剂对孕妇和她们的新生儿肺功能(的作用):一次随机临床试验】。
 
The finding, if confirmed, would offer a cheap and simple preventative therapy in cases where a mom-to-be just can’t quit. 此研究发现(结果),如果被证实。那这可以给吸烟的孕妇提供一个廉价又简单的预防性疗法,一旦吸烟的妈妈们无法戒烟的话。

 
Of course, vitamin C will not eliminate the other long-term health risks linked to tobacco exposure in the womb. So quitting is still far better for the baby. And mom, too. 当然,维C无法消除子宫内接触烟草所引发的其他长期性健康问题。因此,戒烟对母婴来说都是一个好得多的选择。
