Breastfeeding Benefits

Idea

A new study published in The Journal of the American Heart Association on June 21, 2017, says that mothers who participate in breastfeeding also offer substantial benefits to child health and it has also been associated with lower risk of maternal cardiovascular diseases in later life.

However, the evidence on the effects of CVD is still inconsistent, especially in East Asians, in whom the frequency and duration of breastfeeding significantly differ from those in the West.

Study says breastfeeding could lower mom's risk of heart disease, stroke https://usat.ly/2tyfgs0

GOP Health Scare Bill?

Problem

Not so fast, GOP Senators. Senate Republicans say they will finally share their health care bill today after crafting the bill in secret for some time.

The secret bill has been kept away from some Republicans, all Democrats and independents and a vote could happen as early as next week, according to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. However, Republicans can’t vote on the bill until the Congressional Budget Office analyzes how many people will be affected by it and how much it will cost.

World Refugee Day

Issue

The United Nations has set aside this day to focus on the courage and determination of people who for various reasons ranging from war to ethnic cleansing to institutionalized homophobia have unfortunately been forced to abandon everything they have in the hopes of finding safety.

No Body Cares?

Problem

Is the network responsible for The Coz and The Donald now giving a platform to The Meg, who has publicized to the likes of Vlad and other unsavory characters, does No Body Care? A mistrial was declared for The Coz. Meanwhile, why did @POTUS tell The Russians that former FBI Director Comey was a nutjob? Has he also called Vladimir P, Alex J or Steve B nutjobs? Food for thought on this first week of what will surely be a long hot Summer.

CNN Theories on what led to the mistrial. Mistrial declared in Bill Cosby's trial @CNN http://cnn.it/2rH4rBR

Please Be Cool

Idea

As we approach Summer, it is worth remembering that many of us may become hot and irritated, but please do not let it get to you.

Do nothing Congress has kept their reputation intact as it controls the actions or better yet, government inaction.
The US Supreme Court is going on summer vacation at the end of the month. And so are many hard working Americans.

This Summer, keep cool & avoid getting dehydrated by drinking plenty of water. #sunsafety Only hours left before the Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere. #Summertime
