Foods to Avoid During Pregnancy

Raw Meat

Raw Meat

When the food cravings begin, a warm, juicy hamburger might sound like heaven on earth. But be careful: undercooked meat, including pork, can cause toxoplasmosis, an infection that can potentially lead to brain damage or blindness in your baby. So when you're feeling carnivorous, make sure to order your dish well-done, according to The Pregnancy Bible (Firefly Books, 2003).
