Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

Should texas limit pregnancy by requiring birth control until the age of 21 for scholarships?

Should texas limit pregnancy by requiring birth control until the age of 21 for scholarships?

Not likely: As a spin off from a number of political/religious ideas, texas would like to ban all birth control. It is very unlikely they would find themselves in the position of advocating this for any reason. I do find it interesting that texas like other "red" states has a much higher precentage of teen pregnancies, divorce, alcoholism, and all other indexes of social discord than do the blue states. ...Read more

Can you still get the HPV vaccine after age 26 in united states? Turning 26 sunday....

Yes,but: You may actually benefit from the vaccine at any age beyond childhood.However, the 20+years it took to develop the vaccine and the rigorous standards it had to meet before approval meant a significant development cost goes into each dose.

What is the federal government do to lower childhood obesity rates?

What is the federal government do to lower childhood obesity rates?

Unlikely to help: This battle is a complex one but not one any new bureaucracy can help. Outlawing directed advertising to small children could help ( sugar coated cereal, sodas, junk food) but those industries pay lobbyists & contribute to politicians to keep things as they are. Parents need to turn off the tv & learn to feed their kids healthy & keep them exercising. ...Read more

M indian.If childhood obesity is becoming common everywhere, parents, teachers must take initiative & ensure children are getting enough exercise right?

M indian.If childhood obesity is becoming common everywhere, parents, teachers must take initiative & ensure children are getting enough exercise right?

Good thoughts: Obesity is a function of ingestion, frequently of fast food and sugary drinks, and lack of activity. The modern lifestyle encourages these types of misbehavior. Children used to be rushed out of doors and would actively play - now they commonly get electronics and play indoors with video games and activities. Rushed parents take the easy route with preprepared food commonly unhealthy. ...Read more
