Gene Study Results Could Help Reduce Preterm Births

President of the Global Health Division of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Trevor Mundel calls the findings exciting.

"Not only did the study reveal several genes linked to preterm birth, it also identified a simple, low-cost solution – selenium supplements for expectant mothers – that, if confirmed, could save thousands of lives. It's a great example of the power of public-private partnership."

That said, Muglia says more research is needed, and planned, in this area. Pregnant women should not seek out selenium supplements on their own. Selenium is already present in many multi-vitamins, Muglia says.

A gene region found to be related to helping the uterine lining prepare for embryo implantation could improve early detection of a possible risk.

"It suggests to us that it's really some of these very early stages not late stages of the pregnancy that shape the whole risk for preterm birth," he says. "And actually, we may be able to determine a risk even if she's never been pregnant before by understanding the function of these lining cells of the uterus."

Is there a Multivitamin for toddlers with calcium?

My DD Pediatrician told me to give my 18 month old a multi-vitamin with calcium. She can't drink milk, she has an intolerance to just drinking it. I asked my pharmacist if there was one He didn't know. Any help would be apprecitated. Thanks


I am a nutritionist

multivitamins do not normally contain much calcium, because it interfeers with absorption of other minerals when taken with them and also because it takes up alot of room

calcium is available by itself

what is the best multivitamin for a toddler?

i have a 2 year old and a 3 1/2 year old.. i tried Flintstones vitamins but my son wouldnt eat it.. i tried the gum balls but they"ll just swallow the gum..


My son uses centrum kids vitamins, he was prescibed them for low iron problems.


the best multivitamins for a toddler are the ones found in fresh fruit and vegetables. making sure they have a healthy diet is far better than trying to shove pills down their throats and far more effective. vitamin C tablets are good.. or you could just
