Anti viral drugs work by preventing viruses from making more copies of themselves inside human cells.

Bresee said no one can gauge how bad things are until more time has passed. And this years guess was a bit off.

Illinois officials said they have seen more flu cases occur in recent weeks which is normal for this time of year. Although its too soon to judge whether this flu season is worse than normal several factors could increase the toll.

Manufacturers are not required to list phthalate contents on products package labels making it hard for parents to make informed decisions the investigators point out. S.

As reported online today in the journal pediatrics sathyanarayana from the university of washington seattle and colleagues measured the levels of nine different phthalate breakdown products in urine from diapers of infants aged to months. .

All Of The Urine Samples Contained At Least One




As reported online today in the journal pediatrics sathyanarayana from the university of washington seattle and colleagues measured the levels of nine different phthalate breakdown products in urine from diapers of infants aged to months.

All of the urine samples contained at least one phthalate at measurable levels they report and percent of the samples had measurable amounts of seven or more phthalates. A new study suggests that baby lotion baby powder and baby shampoo may be exposing babies to potentially harmful chemicals called phthalates.
