I have heard the theory years ago, that one of the suspected causes of Idiopathic Scoliosis is excessive drinking during pregnancy.
We all know that a mother to be can damage her fetus in many ways if she drinks excessively during her pregnancy.
I have heard that this is one suspected (but not proven) cause of scoliosis. My mother is an alcoholic, so this theory tends to make sense to me.

I am just wondering if anyone else has heard anything about this theory? Does anyone know where I can find more information about it?
