What are Potential Problems with Placental Abnormalities?
Discussion “The placenta is a unique organ that sits at the interface of, and facilitates nearly all interactions between, maternal and fetal physiology. It is the sole source of oxygen and nutrition for the fetus, and provides a protective barrier against external insults. The placenta is also a highly adaptable organ that is capable of showing a wide range of pathological changes in response to various maternal and fetal factors and stressors.” The placenta has 3 layers: the amnion (fetal side), the chorion, and decidua (maternal side).

Routine Childhood Vaccination Rates Fell as Misinformation About the COVID-19 Shot Rose
Anti-vaccine sentiments have been simmering in the U.S. since at least 1998, when the Lancet, a prestigious medical journal, published—and later retracted—a fraudulent paper falsely linking childhood vaccines to autism. They’ve grown even stronger in the past two years, thanks to disinformation about the COVID-19 vaccines. Though the development of the COVID-19 vaccines happened at an unprecedented pace, they’ve been rigorously tested, and have proven both safe and effective. Nevertheless, falsehoods about them—that the vaccines contained microchips, that they would alter the DNA of recipients...

If We ’re Going to Live With COVID-19, It’s Time to Clean Our Indoor Air Properly
As the Omicron variant spreads rapidly across vaccinated and unvaccinated America, and a shocking number of Americans are still dying, many are wondering what the coming months will bring, how will they continue to protect themselves from COVID-19, and when, if ever, life will really return to something resembling the pre-pandemic normal. The good news is that this pandemic will eventually end due to effective vaccines, infection-induced herd immunity, and the further evolution of the virus. The bad news is that like seasonal influenza, COVID-variants may be with us for years to come, and this will certainly not be the las...
