Don't Be A Boob. Breastfeed Your Babies

News Flash!
The way humans have been nourishing their young for years, and centuries, and millennia -- since we developed MAMMARY GLANDS -- turns out to be the best way to nourish their young.

Crazy, I know.

This is something that, if you had both oars in the water, you would be able to know intuitively from basic common sense. That said, science is not based on common sense, and must demonstrate the what, why, and wherefore. It's nice to see the data confirm and extend what we already figured was true.

The research, published in the July issue of Pediatrics, showed that breast-feeding (probably from the colostrum) provides an immune system boost to infants, helping to prevent respiratory and gastrointestinal illnesses in babies, according to new research.

Babies who were breast-fed exclusively for 4 months, and then partially until they were 6 months old, had a reduced risk of respiratory and gastrointestinal infections compared to babies who had never been breast-fed, the Dutch team found.

"Exclusive breast-feeding reduces respiratory and gastrointestinal infections in infancy," said the study's senior author, Dr. Henriette Moll, a professor of pediatrics at Erasmus Medical Center's Sophia's Children's Hospital in Rotterdam.

"Our results support health policy strategies to promote exclusive breast-feeding for at least 4 months and preferably 6 months in industrialized countries. This is in line with the World Health Organization recommendations for 6 months of exclusive breast-feeding," said Moll.

Subway Crash ... Oops.

Sorry about that Salmonella, guys. Can I give you a biggie sized drink to make it up to you?

Illinois Department of Health investigators confirmed 97 cases of Salmonella Hvittingfoss infection from 28 Illinois counties. So if you live anywhere near there, and you find yourself at a subway, be sure to get the MeatLover's Sub-o-Rama because the veggies are suspect.

Of course, Subway has removed all lettuce, green peppers, red onion and tomatoes from restaurants in the entire STATE, and replaced them with new produce.

"We are confident the current fresh produce being served in Subway restaurants are safe to eat," the company added.

They are confident. Are you?

U.S. scores dead last. Again.

Nice. I don't know about you, but I had heard over and over that the U.S. has the best healthcare system on Earth, nay, in this part of the galaxy!!

This study shows the data, and says that that is just wrong.

The current report uses data from nationally representative patient and physician surveys in seven countries in 2007, 2008, and 2009.

In 2007, health spending was $7,290 per person in the United States, more than double that of any other country in the survey.

Australians spent $3,357, Canadians $3,895, Germans $3,588, the Netherlands $3,837 and Britons spent $2,992 per capita on health in 2007. New Zealand spent the least at $2,454.

But Americans get less service for more money, according to the Commonwealth Fund's Cathy Schoen.

"We rank last on safety and do poorly on several dimensions of quality," Schoen told reporters. "We do particularly poorly on going without care because of cost. And we also do surprisingly poorly on access to primary care and after-hours care."

Here is the train wreck of a report:
