What Is It About The Word SEX You Don t Understand?Sex has to be the most pleasurable act for animal species on earth, and birth to perpetuate the species has to be among the most painful.

Just last week my baby started to pull out his little thing out of his diaper. Entire day he would keep tugging on to it, and pee all around the house, soiling the house, his clothes and his skin. It was so embarrassing. There was barely anyone that I could discuss this with. I mustered some strength and spoke to my Mom about it, and she went on to exclaim, "Oh don''t worry All boys do those things " and burst out into laughter. Of all things, I knew he was not doing it out of enjoyment. I tried to coach him on not doing it, to keep "it" in his pants, scolded him, and even slapped him out of frustration, but all of it in vain.I made up my mind to visit the doctor as this did not seem to resolve. As we started to discuss with my paediatrician, I hinted my husband to have ''the talk', and guess what, my husband refused. It was embarrassing, but I tried my best to explain it to the doctor. He could identify the shame in my tone. He checked my son and took me back to his table. He drew a simple diagram and explained the boy anatomy to me and taught me an important lesson in genital care... and as I had guessed it right, he was not doing it for "all boys do it.
When your baby is born, monitoring their growth becomes like a second job. You see the pediatrician so often in those early months that it''s hard not to become a little obsessed with tracking every inch and ounce Babies grow A LOT in the first months of their life, and continue to grow at a pretty rapid pace throughout toddlerhood and childhood.

J. J. Rawlinson, a veterinarian at Wallis Annenberg PetSpace, a pet community center in California, schooled me about the idea of cat depression. Depression, as we think about in people, does not really occur in cats , she says. Cats that are acting depressed often have a medical condition. They may be, for example, nauseous or experiencing arthritis. In other words, many veterinarians don t believe that cats suffer from emotional tumult the same way humans do. Pet parents diagnosing their feline friends with depression is believed to more likely be us projecting human feeling states onto our fur babies than it is to be actual depression.The good news, here, is that sad cats are probably not sad. The bad news is that cats who seem sad may actually be physically sick. That means that it s extra important to stay tuned in to signs that you might be tempted to attribute to depression because cat moods are subtle health barometers.

Every year, more than 200,000 babies and young children around the world die from rotavirus, a highly contagious disease that causes severe diarrhea and dehydration. Rotavirus killed about three times as many children before the introduction of a vaccine in 2006, but there is still no specific treatment for kids who get infected, other than hydration. The vaccine has also proven to be less effective in poor countries, where more children die of rotavirus.That may change thanks to a new discovery by Georgia State biomedical scientists. In a recent study published in the journal Cell, researchers found one means of preventing and treating rotavirus may lie in your gut.
