|A new study is exploring the links between drinking caffeine during pregnancy and childhood cancer.
The study by researchers at the University of Leicester and funded by World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) UK involves scrutinising the caffeine intake of hundreds of pregnant women and comparing the results with blood samples from their babies after birth.
Leukaemia is the most common cancer in children, although it is still rare, and medical experts believe that caffeine may damage the DNA of unborn children and make them more susceptible to the disease.
