Survey Regarding Vegan Pregnancy

From Raveem Ismail:

Dear Vegan Advocates

If you could please fill in our survey, the anonymised results will contribute towards the medical research effort detailed below. The survey is at http://goo.gl/MKYIT and we would encourage you to share the link.

We are carrying out research on Group B streptococcal carriage in vegans during pregnancy. This is an intestinal bacterium, normally harmless, but capable of infecting an unborn baby (for example, 1 in 2,000 UK births have a proven GBS infection). With some weak evidence suggesting a dietary link to GBS, the aim is to ascertain whether Vegan women acquire GBS to the same extent as non-Vegans.
