Eating Fish During Pregnancy May Improve Baby ’ s Eyesight
BOSTON (CBS) – Pregnant women may be able to optimize their baby’s eyesight and brain function by regularly eating fatty fish during pregnancy. Researchers studied 56 mothers and their children in Finland and found that infants whose mothers ate fish three or more times a week during the last trimester did better on vision tests than those whose mothers ate little or no fish. Fish contain fatty acids, which are critical for nerve cells involved in eyesight and help brain cells communicate with one another. Pregnant women are currently advised to eat some fish but are also told to avoid fish that are high i...

Fish-rich diets may boost babies' brain development
(Springer) Women could enhance the development of their unborn child's eyesight and brain function by regularly eating fatty fish during pregnancy. This is the suggestion from a small-scale study led by Kirsi Laitinen of the University of Turku and Turku University Hospital in Finland, in the Springer Nature-branded journal Pediatric Research. The research supports previous findings that show how important a prospective mother's diet and lifestyle choices are for the development of her baby. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

A fast and sensitive technique based on optical detection has now been outlined in the journal Angewandte Chemie. Scientists from Germany and Finland have demonstrated the binding of an RNA target to a probe made of gold nanorods and a DNA origami structure. Chirality switches triggered by binding can be measured by circular dichroism spectroscopy. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)
