Claim #6: Coffee will bring on a miscarriage. 

 

Response: The ACOG weighed the research and concluded in 2010 that up to 200 mg of caffeine a day isn’t a risk factor for miscarriage or pre-term birth. So it’s okay to drink an 8-ounce cup of brewed, drip coffee, which has about 137 milligrams of caffeine.
