Painkillers in pregnancy may affect babies' future fertility - BBC News
Edinburgh University found the drugs may also affect the fertility of future generations, by leaving marks on DNA.

Experts said the findings added to growing evidence some medicines, including Paracetamol, should be used with caution during pregnancy.

Researchers stressed advice for pregnant women remained unchanged.

Current guidelines say, if necessary, Paracetamol should be used at the lowest possible dose for the shortest possible time. Ibuprofen should be avoided during pregnancy.

The study looked at the effects of Paracetamol and ibuprofen on samples of human foetal testes and ovaries.

Expect more teenage pregnancies and STIs as public health cuts kick in | Public Leaders Network | The Guardian
[ cut public health budget (prevention & intervention) by +200m ] Slicing money out of local prevention services is ‘economically nonsensical’, completely undermining the pledge to pump billions into the NHS [...] 77% [of councils] said they expected obesity interventions to be cut [...] total spend on STIs by 2020 could top £6bn. [...] Every £1 spent on contraception saves £11 in healthcare costs. Cuts to sexual health sector are economically nonsensical [ TORIES SET NHS UP TO FAIL!

Osborne's Budget: ‘High priest of an austerity cult’ | Politics | The National
At its heart was a commitment to cut the deficit and bring the country in surplus by 2020. Osborne will achieve that partly through cuts to government spending, partly through new tax avoidance measures and substantially with hefty cuts to welfare. // &! John Swinney: The National Living Wage hides an attack on people in low-wage jobs &! Equality: This Budget continues the project which impoverishes women - - women make up ~70-77% of recipients of tax credit! &! tax credit essential for families on low income to top up to afford "living" [...] The Scottish Federation of Housing Associations is wholeheartedly against the removal of the automatic entitlement to Housing Benefit for 18 to 21-year-olds. This will have an adverse affect on the life chances and employment prospects of the 28,000 plus claimants in this group – over half of whom have young families of their own – as it could, for many, put their homes at risk. &!

Schwangerschaft und Alkohol: Große Risiken - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Laut einer aktuellen Untersuchung wissen 44 Prozent der deutschen Bevölkerung nicht, dass Alkoholkonsum in der Schwangerschaft zu bleibenden Schäden für das Kind führen kann. "Bereits geringste Mengen Alkohol, vermutlich ab der dritten Schwangerschaftswoche, können zu vermeidbaren Störungen beim Kind führen. Deshalb sollte eine Schwangere spätestens, wenn sie weiß, dass sie schwanger ist, keinen Alkohol mehr trinken",

Antibiotics During Pregnancy May Increase Child's Obesity Risk -

Children of obese mothers 'have higher heart risk'
It is not known how much of the link is down to genetics, influences in the womb or later lifestyle. But the authors say their findings, in the British Medical Journal, are of "major public health concern". One woman in five in the UK is obese at their antenatal booking appointment. >> + More than half of women who gave birth in Belfast's Royal Jubilee Maternity Hospital last year were either obese or overweight, the BBC has learned. Consultant obstetrician Alyson Hunter said the problem was turning into an epidemic. + >>

Prenatal exposure to bisphenol A impacts mid... [Neurotoxicology. 2013] - PubMed - NCBI
The anti-dopaminergic devil is in the plastic bottle: "Exposure of pregnant rhesus monkeys to relatively low levels of BPA during the final 2 months of gestation, induced abnormalities in fetal ventral mesencephalon and hippocampus. Specifically, light microscopy revealed a decrease in tyrosine hydroxylase-expressing (dopamine) neurons in the midbrain of BPA-exposed fetuses and electron microscopy identified a reduction in spine synapses in the CA1 region of hippocampus.{...] These data indicate that BPA exerts an age-dependent detrimental impact on primate brain development, at blood levels within the range measured in humans having only environmental contact with BPA."

The good news is similar effects were not observed in older monkeys.

Forscher: Trinken in der Schwangerschaft ist Kindesmissbrauch - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Trinkt eine Schwangere, leidet das Gehirn ihres Kindes - ein Leben lang. Die Betroffenen entwickeln Konzentrationsschwierigkeiten, sie sind hyperaktiv, ecken an. Werdende Mütter sollten besser aufgeklärt werden, fordern Forscher.


Laut dem Mediziner sieht man nur einem geringen Teil der Kinder die Alkoholschädigung am typischen Aussehen mit zum Beispiel kleinen Augen, schmaler Oberlippe und insgesamt kleinem Kopf an. "Sie sind nur die Spitze des Eisbergs", meinte er. Sind die Störungen versteckt, würden die Kinder in der Schule oft gehänselt, sie seien unruhig und hyperaktiv. Oft würden sie aus ihren Familien herausgenommen und in Pflegefamilien gegeben, die mit den Kindern ebenfalls schwer zurechtkämen.

Respect Yourself: Webseite klärt Jugendliche in England über Sex auf - SPIEGEL ONLINE
In keinem anderen Land ist die Zahl der Teenagerschwangerschaften so hoch wie in England.


Die Projektmanagerin Amy Danahay hingegen sagte der Zeitung, das Internet habe verändert, was junge Menschen über Sex erfahren: Jeder zweite Zehnjährige habe online bereits Zugang zu Pornografie gehabt. "Es wäre naiv zu denken, dass viele Jugendliche nicht regelmäßig viel expliziteres Material konsumieren würden", sagt sie, "und wenn wir ihnen Zugang zu relevanten Informationen geben wollen, müssen wir mit der Zeit gehen."
