After FDA order, 23andMe halts health-related genetic reports
Fri Dec 6, 2013
IMO if anyone takes 23andme health results seriously then they need to seek to seek a second or third opinion. For example, if they say someone is at an elevated risk for disease X (let's say diabetes as an example), then I'd have to look at that result in context. Is the person in quest …
What makes U.S. health care so overpriced? It's not what youthink
Tue Nov 12, 2013
Exactly. I have a 20-ish year old cousin that complains about life's woes and money so much that I blocked her posts from my facebook page. She goes without health insurance because it is too expensive, but her husband (a police officer) and kids have it. The problem is that she is …
Term pregnancy now defined as at least 39 weeks
Tue Oct 22, 2013
In reply to: grumpy-3203779 #8My son was born at 38 weeks, 3 days after only 2 1/2 hours of labor. I almost didn't make it to the hospital in time and my doctor was only there for the last 30 minutes of my labor. He arrived on his own terms, no inducing, etc. As for hard and fast deadlin …
Health care holdouts: Uninsured but resisting
Fri Oct 4, 2013
Younger people (supposedly lower risk) are also smokers, obese, and have poor diets. I have a twenty-something cousin who is all of the above. On Facebook she complains about money, not being able to afford extras for her two kids, or having to find a way to pay for an unexpected expense.  …
Breastfeeding worries cause many new moms to consider giving it up
Tue Sep 24, 2013
The problem is that help with breastfeeding outside of the hospital is left to the mom to figure out on her own. I could have joined a mother's group when my son was born, but where were the experts at 6:00 in the evening when I was tired and the baby was 2 hours into a another cluster feeding …
FDA requires tracking codes on medical implants
Fri Sep 20, 2013
A box of food has to have a label that tells the consumer what ingrediants it contains, how many calories it contains prepared and unprepared, how long it is good for, and possible allergens it may contain. Even my kid's cheap, portable DVD player has a serial number and make and model stamped …
Twice burned: Paying taxes on stolen money
Sun Aug 4, 2013
Sounds like she was smart with her pennies, but foolish with her dollars. I feel for her, but there were many red flags that she ignored or chose not to see. She made some bad choices and ignored the most basic of investing advise (diversify, if it sounds too good to be true it probably is, ec …
Don't cut a newborn's umbilical cord right away, study suggests
Thu Jul 11, 2013
I have heard about the stem cell angle also. I wonder how this would apply to those babies (like my son) who were born after a short labor (2.5 hours). My water broke upon delivery (not by the doctor or nurse) and the placenta was delivered immidiately after the baby. I can see wai …
Plus-sized model's new swimwear line makes waves
Wed Jul 10, 2013
Swim wear for real women doesn't mean we are all fat slobs. I have two children, the youngest 8 months old. I am tall and slender, but curvier and shaped differently than I was before gaining 40 lbs of baby weight last year. My top and bottom are different sizes. I would like …
Nearly half of babies have flat spots, study finds
Mon Jul 8, 2013
My doctor noticed my son had a slight flat spot when he was three months old and recommended turning his head. However, I don't think that I did anything different after that because however much I tried, I couldn't force my son to lay on a different side. My son also hated laying on his …
