You don't say??

A healthy diet packed with fruit, vegetables, and omega-3 rich fish could help to reduce the risk of pre-term babies, according to new research.

And researchers were actually paid to "discover" this? Stating the bleeding obvious, self-evident and common-sense if you ask me! While they were about it, they might have mentioned the other issues that would be resolved if those healthy eating habits extended across the preconception period and included the prospective dad.

Of course the knowledge that healthy parents make healthy babies only dates back a few thousand years ... what might be valuable instead of re-inventing the wheel, would be ways to encourage all prospective parents to act on this knowledge. Now that's research that would have some real value!
