When the Daugherty family decided to visit Seattle, Washington, for a 4 day whale watching trip to celebrate their sons 10th birthday, they had no idea that a trip to the emergency room would turn into a nightmare that would rip their family apart.

They were more than a thousand miles from home and from their own doctors, when chronically ill Zachary began running a fever and showing signs of an infection.

When his parents took him to the emergency room at Seattle Childrens Hospital, they blindly walked into a web of controversy involving some of the most notorious Child Abuse Specialist doctors in the country, with connections to Medical Kidnap stories we have published spanning from Boston to Arizona, California, and Washington.

California parents Kevin and Erin Daugherty learned that the conflict between Boston area doctors involved with the notorious Justina Pelletier case didnt stay in Boston. It has spread all the way from the East Coast to the West Coast of America. Their son Zachary has been caught in the crossfire of differing philosophies of different doctors.

There is a dangerous trend occurring today involving parents with children with multiple medical issues (medically complex) or children with mysterious conditions that doctors havent figured out how to diagnose yet.

While the concerned parents often have to search for doctors with the expertise to help their children, that very concern is used to accuse them of Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy or Factious Disorder, or the more common term now used in child social services Medical Child Abuse a general all-purpose term used by doctors in the relatively new field of Child Abuse Specialists when parents dare to disagree with them.

Shikonin inhibits cell growth and induces apoptosis in different types of breast cancer cells. "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

PMID:  Sci Rep. 2018 Feb 8 ;8(1):2672. Epub 2018 Feb 8. PMID: 29422643 Abstract Title:  RNA-seq transcriptome analysis of breast cancer cell lines under shikonin treatment. Abstract:  Shikonin is a naphthoquinone isolated from the dried root of Lithospermum erythrorhizon, an herb used in Chinese medicine. Although several studies have indicated that shikonin exhibits antitumor activity in breast cancer, the mechanism of action remains unclear. In the present study, we performed transcriptome analysis using RNA-seq and explored the mechanism of action of shikonin in regulating the growth of different types of breast cancer cells. The ICof shikonin on MCF-7, SKBR-3 and MDA-MB-231 cells were 10.3, 15.0, 15.0 respectively. Our results also demonstrated that shikonin arrests the progression of cell cycle and induces apoptosis in MDA-MB-231 cells. Using RNA-seq transcriptome analysis, we found 38 common genes that significantly express in different types of breast cancer cells under shikonin treatment. In particular, our results indicated that shikonin induces the expression of dual specificity phosphatase (DUSP)-1 and DUSP2 in both RNA and protein levels. In addition, shikonin also inhibits the phosphorylation of JNK and p38, the downstream signaling molecules of DUSP1 and DUSP2. Therefore, our results suggest that shikonin induces the expression of DUSP1 and DUSP2 which consequently switches off JNK and p38 MAPK pathways and causes cell cycle arrest and apoptosis in breast cancer cells.

Meet the Leadership: Jen Valencia, ICAN of Colorado Springs "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

ICAN is excited to announce Jen Valencia as our newest Chapter Leader!

I am most excited to help families know and understand they have options; that their birth choices belong to them. I am excited to be able to offer them a place for recovery, support, education, and most of all a voice. ~ Jen Valencia, ICAN of Colorado Springs

Please introduce yourself to ICAN:

I have a Bachelor of Science in Applied Human Behavior from Northern Arizona University, with a focus on childbirth as a life stage and the family unit. I am passionate about family wellness, and strive to build confidence, and provide education, and relational support as a doula, childbirth educator, and owner of Metropolitan Birth Support, a doula agency serving Colorado Springs and Denver. I teach Birth Boot Camp, and I am an Instructor Trainer. I love working with other professionals, knowing that each one I train will go on to benefit a great number of families. I enjoy hiking, rock climbing, and mountaineering. I love to travel and seek adventure in places that challenge me. I have a beautifully chaotic household with 4 chirping birds, 3 rambunctious children, 2 playful dogs, 1 lively rabbit, and an eccentrically introverted husband!

What led you to join ICAN?

When my first birth ended in a cesarean I heard the word VBAC, but I had no idea how challenging that would be to obtain. I had thought it was just like any other birth. Five years later, when navigating birth politics and being turned down by so many places for my VBAC baby, I learned of the struggle. I did not have an ICAN chapter near me and longed for support, information, camaraderie, anything. Having an ICAN would have made a huge difference to that experience. I still had my VBAC, but the path to it felt isolating. When I moved t...

10 Ways Your Mum Might Ruin Your Pregnancy "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

10 Ways Your Mum Will Ruin Your Pregnancy

Youre carrying her grandchild, so its safe to say your mum will take an active interest in your pregnancy. She will make sure you eat enough fruit and vegetables, and worry about your fibre intake. Therell be endless stories, as she regales you with memories from her own pregnancy. But shell also listen to your worries, take you shopping for baby stuff and make sure you feel pampered and loved during your pregnancy. In short, shell do all the things you will also do for your kids one day, when theyre about to become parents. Just like her, youll want to hold their hand every step of the way. And thats lovely, really lovely. Apart from when its not.

10 Ways Your Mum Might Ruin Your Pregnancy

Sometimes, although you might not want to say it out loud, your mothers help feels more like a hindrance. There are days you wish she lived a little further away (in a nice way) or she had something else to distract her. Sometimes, you might even wish she were just a little bit less her. For example:

#1: Shell Keep Talking About Her Haemorrhoids

Whatever your mums worst pregnancy symptom was, youre going to hear a lot about it over the next few months. Shell sift through her memories for all the horror stories of pregnancy just when you need a positive coach to help you through it. If she had haemorrhoids, then buckle up, because shes not going to spare you any of the gory details. And she wont wait until you mention them. Nope, shell be talking about them before youve finished making your pregnancy announcement. Just wait till you get piles, she will say, knowingly.

#2: ... In Public

And dont expect her to keep those TMI conversations private. Shell recount the details of her haemorrhoids, and predict what yours will be like, in front of anyone who will listen. You should expect your partner to hear way, way too many intimate details about your mums pregnancy during the next few months. And so will any waiters unfortunate enough to be serving your table. And so will well, anyone in earshot really. In fact, you should probably avoid inviting her to...

Antibiotics During Pregnancy Increase Infection Risk For Babies "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Antibiotics During Pregnancy Increase Infection Risk For Babies

In media reports this week, new research suggests children whose mothers took antibiotics during pregnancy have an increased risk of being hospitalised for serious infections. The study, published this week in the International Journal of Epidemiology, looked at data from over 770,000 Danish children born between 1995 and 2009.

Antibiotics During Pregnancy Increase Infection Risk For Babies

The risk of infection increased with the number of doses, and with antibiotics being prescribed later in pregnancy. There was no difference in risk between different types of infection whether they were viral, gastrointestinal, lower/upper respiratory tract, bacterial, genito-urinary, skin, or soft tissue.

What Do Antibiotics Do?

Antibiotics have been a boon to modern medicine. They are used against bacterial, not viral, infections, and different types of antibiotics target specific types of bacteria. Although antibiotics can be useful to combat serious infections, they can affect the number and types of healthy bacteria in our gut (microbiome). Changes in the gut microbiome can be extreme, depending on the type of antibiotic prescribed and the length of the course. It takes time to restore healthy gut flora, and it can also be problematic. When it isnt clear which good bacteria have been affected, it can be difficult to restore the balance.

How Does This Affect Pregnancy?

During pregnancy, your baby is protected against infection by the amniotic sac and fluid, and the plug of mucus within the cervix. Until recently, it was believed babies were born with no bacteria at all, and they acquired their microbiome through vaginal birth, skin to s...

Ode to the bin chicken "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

The ancient Egyptians venerated the ibis. Followers of ibis cults would visit temples and purchase mummified ibises for use in votive offerings. The ibis was a sacred bird associated with creation and fertility and knowledge and learning. The ibis cults became so wildly popular that priests began breeding and rearing the birds onsite, specially for mummification.

5 Signs of Evolution You Can Find On Your Own Body "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

While 42% of the American population does not believe in evolution, our bodies tend to tell a very different story. The world around us is stricken with proof to Darwins theory and we all share similar proof through vestigial organs that we have inherited from our ancestors.

Vestigial organs or structures are body parts that over time have reduced or lost their original purpose. They can be discovered in all animals and humans. Have you ever had your wisdom teeth or appendix removed?

Here are 5 ways that your body bares proof to evolution:

The Nictitating Membrane

The third eyelid is a transparent or translucent membrane that protects and moisten the eye without losing visibility. It is common in amphibians, reptiles, and birds. Among primates, it is only functional in lemurs and lorises.

In humans, the plica semilunaris is a remnant of the nictitating membrane. Obviously, we can not move it but still has some lacrimal drainage function and helps in the eye movement.

 The Tailbone

If you touch your spine till the end, you will reach the coccyx or tailbone. It is three to five fused vertebrae, vestige of the tail of our primate ancestors. In fact, when we were in the womb, in the early stages of embryo development a 10-12 tail vertebrae formation is observed.

Subsequently, it is reabsorbed, but not in all cases: it has been reported 40 newborns with a tail.

Wisdom Teeth

35% of people do not have wisdom teeth or third molar. In the rest, its appearance is usually painful and removal is necessary.

Our hominin ancestors had them, much bigger than ours. A recent research explains that when a tooth develops, emits signals that determine the size of the neighboring teeth. Reducing the mandible dentition and the other along evolution has resulted in reduced molars (and eventually the disappearance of the third).

The Third Nipple (Polythelia)

It is estimated that up to 5% of the world population has more than two nipples. These extra nipples can be presented in different ways so...

Goodbye Organ Donation Scientists Generated Healthy Lung Tissue From Mans Own Stem Cells "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

By Heather CallaghanEditor

Breaking news fantastic!

The research signifies that the revival of human organs has stepped out of the lab and into clinical application.

For the time being, research has seemingly ebbed from the use of embryonic stem cells. Not only for their controversy but also their expense, difficulty and inconsistent success rate. However, we have within ourselves regenerative stem cells that repair the body and go anywhere they are needed. So they do not have the complications of other cell or transplant therapies. Stem cell therapy is one of the more recent breakthroughs that not only may go down in history, but also has researchers holding the M-word on their tongues miracle. 

For most of history, lung disease was a death knell. In an exciting and positive news twist, a man now has a regenerated set of lungs and a new lease on life thanks to stem cell therapy.

China Daily reports:

Chinese researchers have regenerated human lung tissue in a patient using that patients own stem cells, the first time that has been achieved worldwide, said Zuo Wei, lead r...

Toxic BPA Is All Over Your Receipts Are BPA Replacements More of the Same? "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

BPA replacement

By Heather CallaghanEditor

Did you know that you will get 100,000 times more Bisphenol-A (BPA) from a receipt than a plastic water bottle? [1]

This year, Im doing my taxes with surgical gloves, because one of the biggest secrets is just how much toxic BPA seeps right into the skin. In fact, when triclosan, an antibiotic chemical was still in hand sanitizer, it made our bodies absorb 100x more BPA from receipts!

While we dont have to worry about triclosan in hand sanitizer anymore thanks to a recent FDA ban, BPA is still plenty toxic in its own right. Bisphenol-A (BPA), a chemical found heavily in receipts and in most plastics, cans, and other types of food and drink packaging is already linked to obesityinfertility and reproductive disorders in both genders, breast cancer, prostrate cancer, behavioral problems, brain impairment, hypertension and more.

Replacements for BPA such as BPS are abysmal as well.

Federal Judge Rules Its Unconstitutional To Forbid Women Going Topless In Public "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Men have forever adored the glorious eroticism of the female bosom while remaining unmoved by its hairy male counterpart. Since the beginning of time, humans have all instinctively known that mens and womens breasts are different. Ta-tas are the bomb.

But women in Fort Collins, Colorado, are insisting that male and female breasts are in fact identical. Brandishing their bare bouncing breasts along with signs proclaiming, My breasts are no more sexual than my mouth or my hands, Honk for gender equality, and Free the NIP, they are out in the streets demonstrating for mammary equality in this once-placid college town.

Who knew that breast equality is a vital constitutional issue? But since the Fort Collins indecency code makes it a crime for women, but not men, to display their nipples, were talking basic mammary civil rights here. George Washington and Thomas Jefferson would be outraged that the freedom of bosom expression the First Amendment guarantees is being violated by this prudish, pearl-clutching ordinance. How disgraceful that women are not allowed to be exactly the same as men in constitutional shirtlessness.

How Dare You Tell Me Chests Arent Breasts

The brave women of Fort Collins, who for years have been struggling against the cruel oppression of breasts imprisoned in clothing, were cheered when last February U.S. District Judge R. Brooke Jackson agreed with them. The law, said the judge, is based on gender discrimination, and violates the Fourteenth Amendments guarantee of the equal protection of the laws.

Though its doubtful that anyone was thinking about protecting womens right to nipple flaunting when the amendment was ratified in 1868, in 2017 this judge promptly issued an injunction against enforcement. The issue is now being considered by the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals, certainly a wise use of taxpayer funds.

The law perpetuates a stereotype ingrained in our society that female breasts are primarily objects of sexual desire, whereas male breasts are not, Jackson wrote. The irony is that by forcing women to cover up their bodies, society has made naked womens breasts something to see. Yes indeedy, ever since the first girly magazines appeared as pagan fertility goddesses sporting a 36 DDD. Nevertheless, in the past several years Free the Nipple has become an international cause celeb.

This massively absurd denial of sexual reality comes from the usual suspects. In Fort Collins it can be traced to a movement called Go Topless Fort Collins, headed by an individual with a quarter-inch buzz cut who claims to represent the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transsexual, Queer, Intersex (!!) and Asexual (LGBTQIA) community. Although one hesitates to label this person a woman for fear of violating his/her/its right to gender fluidity, her name,...

Four recent birth-related revelations "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Since I got back from our latest trip, Ive been catching up with the research, blog posts and thinking that went on while we were away, and I found so many interesting things that I decided to write a summary of four recent birth-related revelations that caught my eye

 

More benefits for optimal cord clamping

 

Increasing our knowledge of gestational age and VBAC

Another recent study looked at the effect of gestational age on women who attempted VBAC after one previous caesarean section. Although not a prospective trial, this cohort study included 2849 women. Of those, 2584 (90.7%) had a successful TOLAC (sic; this refers to trial of labour after caesarean, a term which many find unhelpful) and 16 women (0.56%) had uterine rupture. Those rates did not differ significantly for any gestational age (GA) group. Foll...

Phthalates exposure may be related to statistically significant ALT and AST serum levels increment as well as with increased BMI. "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

PMID:  Environ Monit Assess. 2017 Dec 13 ;190(1):17. Epub 2017 Dec 13. PMID: 29234897 Abstract Title:  Potential influence of the phthalates on normal liver function and cardiometabolic risk in males. Abstract:  Phthalates are ubiquitous environmental contaminants, massively used in industry as plasticizers and additives in cosmetics, which may impair the human endocrine system inducing fertility problems, respiratory diseases, obesity, and neuropsychological disorders. The aim of this study was to examine the influence of the monoethyl phthalate (MEP) and mono-(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (MEHP) on the liver function and cardiometabolic risk factors in males. In this research, 102 male participants (51 normal weight and 51 overweight/obese) were enrolled and examined for phthalate metabolites exposure in urine samples after 12 h of fasting. MEP was found in 28.43% (29/102) volunteers, while MEHP was detected among 20.59% (21/102) participants. Statistically significant increment in transaminase serum levels was observed in MEP-positive normal weight subgroup. Linear correlation was obtained between MEP concentration inurine samples and triglyceride (TG) serum levels (r=0.33; p

Women being left behind, UN warns "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

A United Nations report claims women are being left behind in the organisations ambitious goals to solve hunger, injustice and other global ills.

The UNs womens agency said females remain poorer, sicker and more vulnerable to violence than men.

The report said an agenda set out by the UN more than two years ago is in danger of backsliding.

Progress for women and girls remains unacceptably slow, said Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, UN Womens executive director.

Even where progress has been made, it has been highly uneven, she said in the reports foreword.

Alarmingly, many hard-won gender equality achievements are under threat.

World leaders agreed in September 2015 on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), designed to tackle by 2030 the worlds most vexing problems including extreme poverty and inequality.

Described as a blueprint for the future, the 17 SDGs and 169 associated targets address challenges such as hunger, jobs, education, gender equality, sanitation, justice and peace.

The report found 4.4 million more women than men are living on less than US$1.90 a day, largely because women perform more than twice as much unpaid care and domestic work as men.

A gender pay gap persists, with womens earnings just 77 per cent of what men earn, according to the report.In national parliaments, female representation overall is about 24 per cent.

Gender inequalities manifest themselves in each and every dimension of sustainable development, stated the report.

One in five women and girls has experienced violence by an intimate partner within the last 12 months, but 49 countries have no laws to protect them from domestic violence, it noted.

The report noted the global goals are intertwined, so a poor girl forced into early marriage was likely to drop out of school, give birth at a young age, suffer health issues during childbirth and experience violence.

Such a scenario contrasts with the goals to reduce poverty, eliminate early and forced marriage, provide free education and access to reproductive health care, reduce maternal mortality and eliminate violence against girls and women.
