Does the 'maternity salad' REALLY induce labor?

The Salad, made by Caioti Pizza Cafe in Studio City, is a simple mix of romaine, watercress, walnuts, and gorgonzola, with a herb-balsamic dressing. But scores of women say the herbs broke their waters.

ng Jae Kang One of the 100 worst invasive exotic species, Solenopsis invicta (red imported fire ant), has the possibility to induce an allergic reaction that may eventually cause death from its aggressive stinging. In 2017, S. invicta was found at a container yard in Gamman Port, Busan, South Korea for the first time. It may result in an infestation of fire ants in the Korean environment. After this incident, sensitive quarantine procedures are required to detect possible contamination of fire ants in imported containers. However, currently, fire ant identification relies on phenotypic characteristics. This requires hi...

Despite a lower percentage of primary cesareans than non-Hispanic White and Black women, Hispanic women in the United States had the highest rate of repeat cesarean deliveries (RCD) in 2016; it is unclear if reasons for differences are due to known risk factors. Our study examined the association between ethnicity/race and RCD among women with one previous cesarean and whether demographic (age, marital status, education, language, and delivery year), anthropomorphic (height, prepregnancy body mass index), obstetrical/medical (parity, gestational age, infant birth weight, gestational diabetes, labor induction or augmentatio...

The last time I stuck a needle in my arm was three whole months before I conceived my son, and I’m grateful that he’s never experienced me in active addiction. I say three whole months as if it were a lifetime, but it really is to anyone in early recovery. I was fortunate, I stopped using heroin before I found out that I was pregnant. I had just turned 29 and was in a stable relationship with my now-husband. For many women, getting on methadone doesn’t happen until they find out they’re pregnant. Their options are to either keep using or get into treatment. I started taking methadone five months be...

Abstract In our earlier work, we found that intrauterine (i.u.) and intraperitoneal (i.p.) injection of LPS (10 μg serotype 0111:B4) induced preterm labor (PTL) with high pup mortality, marked systemic inflammatory response and hypotension. Here, we used both i.u. and i.p. LPS models in pregnant wild type (wt) and CCR2 knockout (CCR2-/-) mice on E16 to investigate the role played by the CCL2/CCR2 system in the response to LPS. Basally, lower numbers of monocytes and macrophages and higher numbers of neutrophils were found in the myometrium, placenta and blood of CCR2-/- vs. wt mice. After i.u. LPS, parturi...

Abstract It is thought that around 10% of pregnant women turn to acupuncture to alleviate troublesome pregnancy ailments: vomiting, pelvic, back and even labour pain, and to induce labour (Martensson et al., Midwifery 2011;27(1):87-92). Within this unregulated field the available literature is of insufficient quality to show whether acupuncture is either safe, or effective. PMID: 31599071 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
