Do not eat ginger roots during pregnancy

Ginger roots are commonly used as natural medicine, tea, or ingredients when cooking some recipes to add aroma and taste to the food. Filipino people are known to cook so well because of the spices they add. A lot of them even have spices planted in their backyards so that they don’t have to buy to markets anymore. Anyone can eat foods with ginger roots but old Filipino people believe that pregnant woman should not. A ginger root is usually light brown and looks like it has a lot of fingers. The reason why old ones believe that a pregnant woman should not eat anything with this is to avoid having a baby with more than 10 fingers and 10 toes.
