Will Mozart Make My Baby Smart?

And other myth-busting tales of pregnancy and childhood

By Andrew Whitehouse

Do mobile phones and bicycles kill sperm? Do pregnant women really suffer from "baby brain?" Does sugar make kids hyper? Do violent video games cause aggression? Professor Andrew Whitehouse of the Telethon Institute for Child Health Research poses those questions that will make you gasp, snicker, and ponder; the questions that you've thrown around over a coffee with friends, without ever reaching a conclusion. In a wonderful combination of stories from modern parenting, tales from history, and scientific research, Andrew Whitehouse busts open 13 of the best myths around, and provides reassurance and light relief from the challenges of parenthood.
