An award-winning scientist details for the first time how pregnancy sickness is much more than an unfortunate side effect of the first trimester. Rather, it is a highly evolved natural mechanism designed to protect a vulnerable embryo from harm. By explaining the process of how foods affect the embryo--and by listing good and bad foods--"Pregnancy Sickness" is an essential, proactive guide to a healthy baby.
