Pregnancy myths busted by pregnant Mythbuster

Kari Byron, who is on the Build Team on Mythbusters, is pregnant. What better opportunity for her to debunk some pregnancy myths? She was interviewed by Pregnancy 360 about some common myths — salt cravings, determining the child’s sex, and others — and did a great job debunking them.

I’m not surprised. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting her twice: once at TAM, and once in Alberta when I moderated a panel discussion with the Build Team. She’s even smarter, sassier, and funnier in person than on the show, and I’m glad this article got published. Spread the word, and let’s help stamp out some of these ridiculous myths about pregnancy!
