Scientists identify mechanism that may explain why males are more at risk than females for neurodevelopmental disorders
(University of Maryland School of Medicine) Researchers have recently begun to realize that biological sex plays a key role in disease risk. Sex plays a role in hypertension, diabetes, arthritis -- and in many neurological and psychiatric disorders. Depression and anxiety affect females more, while neurodevelopmental disorders, including autism spectrum disorders, early onset schizophrenia, and attention deficit hyperactivity, affect more males. Males are also more sensitive to prenatal insults, such as gestational stress, maternal infection and drug exposure. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

5 Myths about Bipolar Disorder That Boost Stigma
When therapist Colleen King was 19 years old, a psychiatrist told her that because of her family history—her father and brother having bipolar disorder—she shouldn’t have children. Today, King’s clients regularly tell her that people have told them they shouldn’t or can’t have loving relationships. Sadly, these are just two of the many myths about bipolar disorder. Myths that needlessly boost stigma, and, as King noted, deny individuals with bipolar disorder love and connection. Bipolar disorder is a difficult illness, which can create challenges.

A Visit To The Pediatrician Before Birth Can Give Your Baby A Health Boost
BOSTON (CBS) – A new report in the journal Pediatrics says visiting a pediatrician before giving birth could give your unborn baby a leg up when it comes to good health. Most pediatrician offices offer a pre-natal visit but only five to forty percent of first time parents have one. The best time is in the third trimester, weeks before the baby arrives. This early visit will allow expectant parents to start building a trusting relationship with their child’s doctor, allow them to ask questions, and will give the doctor an opportunity to advise parents on health prevention issues like vaccines, the proper use of ...
