Flu vaccine barely working this year, CDC says
Thu Jan 15, 2015
In reply to:Scubasteve58001 #6.2 Wrong, there most definitely have been studies about vitamin D. Linked it with healthy Japanese school children having a reduced change of influenza. ALSO-give just how many people are deficient in vitamin D (majority of North America), one could state that no one is …
That Cheap Old Car Might Carry Deadly Cost for Teens: Study
Thu Dec 18, 2014
Wow, kids having cars bought by parents...lucky or perhaps entitled kids. I'm not even that much older (24) and can think of maybe one person who had a car bought for them...and I think that they had to pay half. Just about everyone had to pay for it themselves! But, it might be worth it for parents …
Social media boundaries: Should teachers and students be 'friends'?
Thu Sep 18, 2014
I am a university student...the only CURRENT teacher/professor that I have on Facebook is my flute teacher, who I knew for several years before she became my teacher, and who is not that different in age as to me (1979 vs 1990 birthday). I do have a handful of former teachers/professors on Facebook, …
No More Needles: Health Officials Recommend FluMist for Kids
Wed Jun 25, 2014
In reply to: MotherElizabeth #3 Sounds the same as chicken pox, and rotavirus (otherwise known as stomach flu), and back in the day-mumps, measles, german measles... And the whole chicken pox vaccine and shingles vaccine...sheesh.
Whooping Cough Vaccine Protects Pregnant Mom and Baby, Too
Sat May 3, 2014
In reply to: PatrickThomas #11 It would be great if the vaccination was effective, but unfortunately it isn't anymore. And it wasn't even that great back in the early 90's, or my sister and I-who were fully vaccinated-would never have caught whooping cough. I should note that there were several hund …
Baltimore school uses smoothie bar to introduce kids to more veggies
Sun Apr 27, 2014
In reply to: anne from nh #3 I know, I saw that and thought an eight year old would be able to do better. I think this is a great option! I have stomach sensitivities, and blending or pureeing things really helps my stomach so I am a huge fan of this.
Measles Cases Surge in U.S., Fueled By Unvaccinated Travelers
Thu Apr 24, 2014
In reply to: acbest #20 Exactly. Vaccines are spotty at best. Not to mention the rather disgusting items put in them. Sure, the claim is there about aluminum being 'safe', but can we all agree that it is pretty gross to have bovine serum (cow serum) from a fetal cow in out Td boosters? As a vegetari …
Despite Known Dangers, Docs Still Prescribe Codeine to Kids
Mon Apr 21, 2014
In reply to: it'sme,too #12 I agree. I don't think aluminum should be in vaccinations anymore than mercury! I am not against some vaccinations-the ones I received as a child-but I feel that mandatory vaccination is wrong, and that there are many vaccinations that simply aren't necessary. Aluminum is …
Ebola Virus in West Africa Is New Strain, Scientists Say
Wed Apr 16, 2014
The good thing is, it is not an airborne virus, unlike many. It is spread through body fluid contact.
Severe Obesity May Be on the Rise in Kids
Mon Apr 7, 2014
In reply to: SteveJ-1209086 #8 They described what it would be. Yes, kids sometimes gain a bit more weight before they grow taller, but they generally stay on the charts if it is a normal weight gain. It is when they are off the charts that it becomes a problem-which is what they explained above. Th …
