Western Diet?

Children of women with a “Western dietary pattern” (characterized by high intakes of organ meat, red meat, processed meat, pizza, potatoes, french fries, condiments, and mayonnaise, but low intakes of fruits) had a higher risk of giving birth to a child with a cleft palate. Women who consumed the greatest amount of these foods had nearly double the risk compared with those who consumed the least.
