Reusable metal water bottles have lately gained a certain cachet as a greener, healthier alternative to some kinds of plastics, which can release trace amounts of a hormone-disrupting chemical into the liquids they hold.But a new study shows that some kinds of aluminum bottles may be releasing more of that chemical, known as bisphenol A (BPA), than the hard, clear polycarbonate plastic bottles they were supposed replace.

Genetic mutations not inherited from parents appear to explain some cases of autism , new research suggests. And the mutations may number in the hundreds.While the new research is a step forward, it is a small puzzle piece. "It could explain up to 2% of all autism cases," says researcher Stephan J. Sanders, MD, a postdoctoral research associate at Yale University's Child Study Center. Even so, he says the new research -- reported as a trio of studies in the journal Neuron -- provides a solid foundation to a better understanding of the biology of the disorder, eventually leading to better treatments.View Thread
I found this interesting! Home births are on the rise. I've only heard 2 experiences - both negative. My sister-in-law's home birth almost had a tragic end - they got to the hospital in time and my nephew was born with an emergency c-section. Another friend's baby had to go to the hospital right after birth due to breathing problems.
I'm sure there are many wonderful home birth stories - but it's not for me! I liked my pain meds
