  • Technically, NO ONE should eat the stuff due to the nitrates in it...a little bit is OK.

  • Of coarse you can eat bologna.. you can eat anything you want.. But I heard you can not eat Mayonnaise,being raw eggs.

  • i was told that woman who r preggo should not have any kind of lunch meat unless you heat it up it has something in it the baby is not supposed to have

  • I have also heard that you should not eat lunch meat during pregnancy due to the high number of nitrates. Also, they can carry the bacteria called listeria. Same with hotdogs and soft cheeses. If you can avoid it I would, but women have been eating whatever they want for hundreds of years and been fine, so I think it is a personal choice.
