Übelkeit und Erbrechen während der Schwangerschaft sind ein häufiges und bisher uneinheitlich interpretiertes Phänomen. Wir führten dazu eine kulturenvergleichende Untersuchung an 565 Müttern in Südafrika, Guatemala und Deutschland durch. Die Ergebnisse liefern einen neuen Ansatz, der die möglichen evolutionären Vorteile des Phänomens erklärt.
