Non-specific effect of vaccines

Non-specific effects of vaccines are effects which go beyond the specific protective effects against the targeted diseases. Non-specific effects can be strongly beneficial, increasing protection against non-targeted infections, but also at times negative, increasing susceptibility to non-targeted infections. This depends on both the vaccine and the sex of the infant. All live attenuated vaccines studied so far have been shown to reduce mortality more than can be explained by prevention of the targeted infections. In contrast, inactivated vaccines diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis vaccine DTP, h ...

Start school later movement

The movement to start school later consists of efforts by health care professionals, sleep scientists, educators, economists, legislators, parents, students, and other concerned citizens to restore a later start to the school day.

Sugar tit

Sugar tit is a folk name for a baby pacifier, or dummy, that was once commonly made and used in North America and Britain. It was made by placing a spoonful of sugar, or honey, in a small patch of clean cloth, then gathering the cloth around the sugar and twisting it to form a bulb. The bulb was then secured by twine or a rubber band. The babys saliva would slowly dissolve the sugar in the bulb. In use the exposed outfolded fabric could give the appearance of a flower in the babys mouth. David Ransel quotes a Russian study by Dr. N. E. Kushev while discussing a similar home-made cloth-and- ...
