Nipple Cream Warning
I’m sure you’ve all heard this by now but it doesn’t hurt to repeat it just in case – The U.S. FDA is “warning consumers not to use or purchase Mommy’s Bliss Nipple Cream because the product contains potentially harmful ingredients that may cause respiratory distress or vomiting and diarrhea in infants“.
Some new research suggests that “sedentary high school girls are at significant risk for future osteoporosis“.
A new study shows that there is a difference in the standard of care for women at risk of osteoporosis in different parts of the world.
Pregnancy and Newborns
Preeclampsia (pregnancy-induced hypertension) is a problem in nearly 8% of pregnancies every year. To be published in Hypertension in Pregnancy is evidence that “stretching exercises may be more effective at reducing the risk of preeclampsia than walking is for pregnant women who have already experienced the condition“.
Two new risk factors for SIDS: overheating of newborns – “increased ambient temperature such as over-wrapping a baby at night time or increasing the room temperature can affect the baby’s pattern of breathing” and smoking – “prenatal cigarette smoke exposure compounds the risk by increasing the likelihood of gasp-like respiration and prolonging the time that it takes for neonates to return to normal breathing following hypoxia“.
Due to the lack of estrogens and other hormones post-menopausal women are at higher risk of osteoporosis and cardiovascular diseases such as atherosclerosis. “A study carried out at the University of Granada on more than 500 postmenopausal patients … concludes recommending the use of the hormone therapy, if necessary, for at least five years, under periodic medical controls“.
