The Chemicals in a Plastic Doll. Cloth Toys Really Better Than Plastic? Not Necessarily

The Chemicals in a Plastic Doll.  Cloth Toys Really Better Than Plastic? Not Necessarily | MOTHER AND CHILD HEALTH | Scoop.it
One night last year, I found myself sitting at the dining-room table, scraping the upper thighs of a baby doll with a chisel. It was quiet in the house; the kids were sleeping in their room, unaware of what I was doing to one of their favorite toys. A toe or an ear would have been easier to cut, but my daughters would have been alarmed at that. I took two small slices of the doll—small enough, I hoped, that the girls wouldn’t notice—and slid them into a wax-paper bag, which I would mail to a chemistry professor in another city the next morning.

What Makes a Human Brain Unique

What Makes a Human Brain Unique | MOTHER AND CHILD HEALTH | Scoop.it
Neuroscientists have identified an area of the brain that might give the human mind its unique abilities, including language. The area lit up in human, but not monkey, brains when they were presented with different types of abstract information.

The idea that integrating abstract information drives many of the human brain's unique abilities has been around for decades. But a paper published in Current Biology, which directly compares activity in human and macaque monkey brains as they listen to simple auditory patterns, provides the first physical evidence that a specific area for such integration may exist in humans. Other studies that compare monkeys and humans have revealed differences in the brain’s anatomy, for example, but not differences that could explain where humans’ abstract abilities come from, say neuroscientists.

“This gives us a powerful clue about what is special about our minds,” says psychologist Gary Marcus at New York University. “Nothing is more important than understanding how we got to be how we are.”

Shyam Kumar Chaturvedi's insight:

Immunization is one of the most cost effective public
health interventions since it provides direct and
effective protection against preventable morbidity...
and mortality. It has been a major contributor in the
decline of under-5 mortality rate from ~ 233 to ~63 (per
1000) in last five decades in India . However, vaccine
preventable diseases (VPDs) are still responsible for over
5 lakh deaths annually in India. This underlines the need
for further improvement. India, along with many
developing countries, is lagging behind in sufficient
coverage of Routine Immunization (RI). According to
World Health Organization (WHO)/UNICEF estimates,
DTP3 coverage in the South-East Asia and Africa regions
of WHO for 2010 remained relatively low at 77% [2]. In
India, the coverage was even lower at 61% [3]. Thus, the
SEA Regional Director declared 2012 as the Year for
Intensifying RI in the Region]. This was endorsed by
Government of India (GoI) and 2012 was declared as the
Year of Intensification of RI in India also.

Studies Prove Without Doubt That Unvaccinated Children Are Healthier Than Their Vaccinated Peers

Studies Prove Without Doubt That Unvaccinated Children Are Healthier Than Their Vaccinated Peers | MOTHER AND CHILD HEALTH | Scoop.it

A 20 year old study from the 1990’s has recently surfaced that compares unvaccinated children to vaccinated children. The study concludes that those who were vaccinated were more likely to suffer from the following illnesses: 
 

asthma  eczemaear infectionshyperactivityand many other chronic conditions. 
 

There was a 10-fold increase in cases of tonsillitis in the children who were vaccinated and a 100% absence of tonsillitis in those unvaccinated.

Vaccines are untested. No efforts are made by manufacturers of vaccines or health authorities, to properly evaluate the results of vaccination. 

But despite official stonewalling, evidence is accumulating that children are FAR healthier when they do not receive vaccinations. Explain that!

We obviously still have important lessons to learn about global disease prevention and intervention programs, cultural diversity, and how these impact our global public health plans. Polio is an immunizable disease that still prevails and possibly re-emerging because we got too complacent about things, were too self-assured, and as a result let our guards down. Approaching the end of the race is not the same as crossing the finish line.
