When you first hear the words morning sickness what comes to mind Most people think of pregnant people praying to the porcelain god constantly However most people do not take notice of the why factor Why does morning sickness occur The article I read talks about some factors that attribute to morning sickness I did not find them particularly helpful but they seemed to confuse me more For many years the condition has been known as a result of hormone levels changing or the emotional changes that pregnancy creates Recently there have been studies that show that these assumptions are not the case at all Morning sickness may now be known as an evolutionary adaptation which protects the developing fetus from toxins found in the certain foods The foods that these toxins are found in are generally meat fish poultry and eggs Foods that in earlier times often went bad and had toxins in them Now we store these foods in freezers so the toxins do not get in However the effect of the adaptation doesnt realize this so when any of these foods are eaten the result is getting sick from them This is what research shows but I still do not get it I mean some people do not get morning sickness does that mean that they have immunity to the toxins And also if this is an adaptation why is it that our bodies do not know that freezers keep toxins out of foods Frankly I think that morning sickness is just something that comes with being pregnant The article states that To most women morning sickness seems to begin and end arbitrally yet its timing makes sense A fetuss major organs develop between six and 14 weeks after conception Thats also when a mother immune response temporarily weaken giving the embryo time to burrow into the uterine wall Small Well if a mothers immune system is weakened of course
