This article, headlined "Coffee consumption 'can increase stillbirth risk,'" sounds like a legitimate health piece on the risks of pregnant women drinking coffee. But read the opening line:

Pregnant women who drink more than eight cups of coffee a day increase their risk of having a stillborn baby compared with non-coffee drinkers, a new study has found.

(Emphasis added). Did we really need to research this? I mean, eight cups of coffee a day is bad for anyone, let alone a developing child scarcely larger than a mug of java him or herself.
