Moms Exposed To Monsanto Weed Killer Means Bad Outcomes For Babies
Concerns about the world’s most widely used herbicide are taking a new twist as researchers unveil data that indicates pervasive use of Monsanto Co.’s weed killer could be linked to pregnancy problems. Researchers looking at exposure to the herbicide known as glyphosate, the key ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup-branded herbicides, said they tested and tracked 69 expectant mothers and found that the presence of glyphosate levels in their bodily fluids correlated with unfavorable birth outcomes. The research is still in preliminary stages and the sample size is small, but the team is scheduled to present their findings on Thursday at a conference put on by the Children’s Environmental Health Network (CEHN) in Washington, D.C. “This is a huge issue,” said Paul Winchester, medical director of the neonatal intensive care unit at the Franciscan St. Francis Health system and professor of clinical pediatrics at Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis, Indiana. He said this is the first U.S. study to demonstrate glyphosate is present in pregnant women. “Everyone should be concerned about this.” Glyphosate is a popular agricultural pesticide, used widely in farming operations around the world. It’s commonly sprayed directly on many food crops and those used for livestock feed. But it has become the subject of hot debate over the last few years because of research that links the herbicide to types of cancer and other health ailme...

Authors: Brima N, Samba TT, Yamba A, Barrett G, Stephenson J, Hall J Abstract New ways of measuring pregnancy planning/intention such as the London Measure of Unplanned Pregnancy (LMUP), which recognise the complexity of the construct, are being adopted worldwide. The aim of this study was to evaluate the psychometric properties of the Krio version of the LMUP in Sierra Leone. An interviewer-administered version of the LMUP was translated into Krio and pre-tested with 12 pregnant women. Field testing involved 172 pregnant women aged 15-42, with 87 completing a re-test. Completion rates of LMUP items were 100%. LMUP...
Authors: Lee HA, Park B, Park EA, Cho SJ, Kim HS, Choi EJ, Kim NE, Park H Abstract BACKGROUND: Routine blood pressure (BP) measurement is recommended to begin at 3 years of age, but there are no national BP reference values for Korean children less than 7 years of age. Therefore, we developed sex-, age-, and height-specific BP reference values for non-overweight children aged 3-9 years. METHODS: We analyzed the data of 416, 340, 321, 323, and 332 subjects aged 3, 5, 7, 8, and 9 years, respectively, who participated in the Ewha Birth and Growth Cohort Study. BP percentile curves were generated using generalized ...
