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.

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.

Be aware what is happening related to health sciences – Take care of your & your family’s health. Prevention is better than cure – that is what the immunization does.

Thank you for being here.

Facts on Breastfeeding – 2

In continuation of last post some more facts on Breastfeeding recommended by WHO are…

Long term benefits for children

Beyond the immediate benefits for children, breastfeeding contributes to a lifetime of good health. Adolescents and adults who were breastfed as babies are less likely to be overweight or obese. They are less likely to have type- II diabetes and perform better in intelligence tests.

Why not infant formula?

Infant formula does not contain the antibodies found in breast milk. The long term benefits of breastfeeding for mothers and children cannot be replicated with infant formula. When infant formula is not prepared, there are risks arising from the use of unsafe water and unsterilized equipment or the potential presence of bacteria in powdered formula. Malnutrition can result from over- diluting formula to “stretch” supplies. While frequent feeding maintains breast milk supply, if formula is used but becomes unavailable, a return to breastfeeding may not be an option due to diminished breast milk production.

HIV and breastfeeding

An HIV-infected mother can pass the infection to her infant during pregnancy, delivery and through breastfeeding. However, antiretroviral (ARV) drugs given to either the mother or HIV-exposed infant reduces the risk of transmission. Together, breastfeeding and ARVs have the potential to significantly improve infants’ chances of surviving while remaining HIV uninfected. WHO recommends that when HIV-infected mothers breastfeed, they should receive ARVs and follow WHO guidance for infant feeding.

Facts on Breastfeeding – 1

Hiii.. everyone…

Wish you a very Happy August coming up… Aaaand want to tell you that from 1st August to 7th August We have World Breastfeeding Week.

The week is celebrated since 1992 for awareness about breastfeeding – for the health of infants – for the health of mother.

So for the knowledge update I am sharing the facts on Breastfeeding which are recommended to by World Health Organisation.

Get this knowledge & share this knowledge at what ever age & gender you are… This is not a topic of shyness.

Facts on Breastfeeding Recommended by WHO :

WHO recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life. At 6 months, solid foods, such as mashed fruits and vegetables, should be introduced to compliment breastfeeding for up to 2 years or more.

In addition :

– breastfeeding should begin within 1 hour of birth.

– breastfeeding should be “on demand”, as the child wants day and night , and bottles or pacifiers should be avoided.

■ Health benefits for infants :

Breast milk is the ideal food for newborns and infants. It gives infants all nutrients they need for healthy development. It is safe and contains antibodies that help protect infants from common childhood illness such as diarrhoea and pneumonia, which helps to ensure that infants get adequate nutrition.

Benefits for mothers :

Breastfeeding also benefits mothers. Exclusive breastfeeding is associated with a natural method of birth control (98% protection in the first 6 months after birth). It reduces risks of breast and ovarian cancer, type II diabetes, and postpartum depression.

To be continued….

☺ Stay healthy , Stay happy ☺

Facts on Breastfeeding – 3

Continuing last post.. some more facts on Breastfeeding recommended by WHO are…

Regulating breast-milk substitutes

An international code to regulate the marketing of breast-milk substitutes was adopted in 1981. It calls for: all formula labels and information to state the benefits of breastfeeding and the health risks of substitutes; no promotion of breast-milk substitutes; no free samples of substitutes to be given to pregnant women, mothers or their families; and no distribution of free or subsidized substitutes to health workers or facilities.

Support for mothers is essential

Breastfeeding has to be learned and many women encounter difficulties at the beginning. Many routine practices, such as separation of mother and baby, use of newborn nurseries, and supplementation with infant formula, actually make it harder for mothers and babies to breastfeed. Health facilities that support breastfeeding by avoiding these practices and making trained breastfeeding counsellors available to new mothers encourage higher rates of the practice. To provide this support and improve care for mothers and newborns, there are “baby-friendly” facilities in about 152 countries thanks to the WHO-UNICEF Baby-friendly Hospital Initiative.

Work and breastfeeding

Many mothers who return to work abandon breastfeeding partially or completely because they do not have sufficient time, or a place to breastfeed, express and store their milk. Mothers need a safe, clean and private place in or near their workplace to continue breastfeeding. Enabling conditions at work, such as paid maternity leave, part-time work arrangements, on-site crèches, facilities for expressing and storing breast milk, and breastfeeding breaks, can help.

The next step: phasing in solid foods

To meet the growing needs of babies at six months of age, mashed solid foods should be introduced as a complement to continued breastfeeding. Foods for the baby can be specially prepared or modified from family meals. WHO notes that: breastfeeding should not be decreased when starting on solids; food should be given with a spoon or cup, not in a bottle; food should be clean and safe; and ample time is needed for young children to learn to eat solid foods.

So.. This is it…. Spread the awareness and make our community healthier by born…
