Do you Know How Vitamin C can protect your Newborn Babies?

Hello my healthy readers …. Came with a very informative post today. Hope you all will spread awareness on this issue. Participate with me to make a healthy community and share it with your family and friends.

The post most importantly focuses on the women who are smokers and can’t quit their smoking during pregnancies.

Women should put priority to quit smoking during pregnancy. Women who are unable to quit smoking during their pregnancy may reduce the harm which smoking does to their baby’s lungs by taking Vitamin C, according to a new randomized, controlled trial.

Daily supplemental vitamin C in pregnant women who could not quit smoking improved their newborn’s pulmonary function. At one year, the study also found that babies whose mothers took vitamin C were less likely to develop wheeze.

The mothers who smoked were randomized to either receive 500mg of supplemental vitamin C everyday or a placebo in addition to the same prenatal vitamin. They were encouraged throughout their pregnancies to quit smoking. On average, the mothers in both arms of the study who could not quit, smoked seven cigarettes a day. In this study there was significant difference in lung function between two groups of babies.

The study did not find a significant difference between two groups of babies in gestational age at delivery, delivery mode, incident of prematurity or birth-weight .

The researchers said that they are not certain why vitamin C has this protective effect on the lungs.

Pregnant smokers who will not or cannot quit despite all efforts, Vitamin C supplementation may be a simple & safe way to help their babies breath better.

Note : This information is based on the study, I am just trying to let the people know about it and encourage all the smoker women to quit smoking while their pregnancies. And try to improve a diet. You should take an advice of your Doctor/ Gynecologist to start Vitamin C supplementation.

STAY HEALTHY , STAY HAPPY

Immunization Week #vaccinesWork

An estimated 19.5 million infants worldwide are still missing out on basic vaccines.

So we are going to take some knowledge on immunization – vaccines today. World Health Organization held the campaign this year in relation of Immunization week. They also have a Quiz section on their website – You can get some more detailed knowledge about vaccines, how it works, in which disease it works & its effectiveness. Most of the facts I am sharing with you all here, so keep reading.

Immunization is the process where by a person is made immune or resistant to an infectious disease, typically by the administration of a vaccine. Vaccines stimulate the body’s own immune system to protect the person against subsequent infection or disease.

Immunization prevents illness, disability & death from vaccine-preventable diseases including cervical cancer, diphtheria, hepatitis B, measles, mumps, pertusis (whooping cough), pneumonia, polio, rotavirus diarrhoea, rubella and tetanus.

WORLD IMMUNIZATION WEEK [ 24 to 30 April,2018 ] is celebrated in the last week of April – aims to highlight the collective action needed to ensure that every person is protected from vaccine-preventable diseases. This year’s theme : “Protected together, #vaccinesWork”, encourages people at every level from donors to the general public to go further in their efforts to increase immunization coverage for the greater good.


More than Facts we have lots of scientist worldwide who tries different studies – researches for our health, for our future generations, a new research study reports that a vaccine delivered as ultrafine nasal spray was found to limit or prevent peanut allergy symptoms in mice. This study is the first step in potentially developing a vaccine to treat food allergies in humans. There are also so many researches going on to treat and prevent tumors through immunotherapy.
