Pre-'88, Good Morning america did a segment on the effects of alcohol poisoning in unborn children.  The pictures of the children showed distinct facial features quite common to people I used to play music for in certain economically depressed locales.  Their average income was quite low and their alcohol consumption was quite high - apparently among their mothers, too.  e.g. at one party, by midnight, a 30" x 8' banquet table was covered completely by standing Budweiser bottles - consumed solely by the 10 people sitting at that table.
