The study was carried out on 2,200 pregnant women by researchers at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine.

The study looked at the effectiveness of magnesium sulfate, Epsom salt, in preventing birth defects such as cerebral palsy.

The pregnant women, who were all at risk of premature birth, were infused with magnesium sulfate to see how it would impact their birth.

The Epsom salt was found to actually cut the overall risk of giving brith to a baby with cerebral palsy in half.

The study has been published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
