Unpasteurized juices

When fruits and vegetables are peeled, cut, or fresh-squeezed, harmful bacteria that may be on the skin of the produce can spread to the inside, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. That includes Toxoplasma, a parasite found on unwashed fruits and vegetables; this parasite can be particularly harmful to moms-to-be and unborn babies. The FDA recommends that pregnant women only drink juices that have been pasteurized or otherwise treated to kill bacteria. Find out how Harry and Meghan’s baby will change the line of succession.

“Remember to thoroughly rinse raw fruits and vegetables under running water before eating or preparing them at home,” the FDA strongly advises. This holds true even when it comes to bananas, oranges, melons, and other fruits with thick skins or rinds: Once you cut into a fruit, anything on the outside can be transferred to the inside.

Too much tea

Since marrying Prince Harry, Duchess Meghan has taken quite nicely to the royal habit of regular tea-drinking. The issue? Tea contains caffeine—an 8-ounce cup contains about 47 mg, which is the same as half a cup of coffee. Although the effects of caffeine on a fetus aren’t clear, the Mayo Clinic recommends limiting intake to under 200 mg a day. Meghan will need to stay under four cuppas a day. Find out the clues you missed that Meghan Markle was pregnant.
