Staggering Human Toll Of Southeast Asia’s Annual Haze
SINGAPORE —The Pollutant Standards Index hit almost 2,000 in Palangkaraya last September, as thick, choking smoke shrouded the capital of Central Kalimantan in Indonesia. Anything over 100 on the air pollution estimate is considered “unhealthy.” A number above 300 is “hazardous.”  Last year’s haze across Southeast Asia, an annual concern in this region, was particularly gruesome and a powerful El Niño weather pattern intensified the problem.

(NIH/National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases) The microbial communities, or microbiota, that naturally colonize the digestive tract in very young infants can affect their risk of later developing childhood allergies and asthma. Scientists now have identified a specific type of microbiota composition and corresponding metabolic environment in the neonatal gut that appears to influence immune cell populations and promote allergy and asthma development.

Cochrane evidence supports the use of kangaroo care in stabilized low birthweight infants as an alternative to conventional neonatal careConventional neonatal care of low birthweight infants (< 2500 g) is expensive and requires both highly skilled personnel and logistical support. Kangaroo Mother Care (KMC) has been proposed as an alternative to conventional neonatal care of low birthweight infants. The major component of KMC is skin-to-skin contact between mother and newborn. The other two components of KMC are frequent and exclusive (or nearly exclusive) breastfeeding, and attempted early discharge from hospital.Two C...
