An investigation was carried out in 1265 Thai women around the Phyathai area in Bangkok to find out the relationship of breast cancer risk with parity and breastfeeding. The patients studied included individuals who had no clinical evidence of breast disease, those who had benign disease, and those who had breast cancer. With regard to marital and pregnancy status, the finding is in agreement with earlier reports that marriage, pregnancy, and early delivery have a protective role against breast cancer. Read More
Lactation counseling for mothers of very low birth weight infants: effect on maternal anxiety and infant intake of human milk.
Pediatrics 2006 Jan;117(1):e67-75
Department of Nutrition, University of North Carolina, Greensboro, North Carolina, USA.
Objective: Although it is well documented that breastfeeding promotes health and development of very low birth weight (VLBW) infants, lactation initiation among mothers of VLBW infants is low. Mothers are anxious about the health of their children, and medical staff may be reluctant to promote breastfeeding out of concern for increasing that anxiety. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to examine whether mothers of VLBW infants who initially planned to formula feed were different in terms of their level of anxiety and maternal stress compared with mothers who had planned to breastfeed their infants.

NTP Toxicology and Carcinogenesis Studies of Coumarin (CAS No. 91-64-5) in F344/N Rats and B6C3F1 Mice (Gavage Studies).
Natl Toxicol Program Tech Rep Ser 1993 Sep;422:1-340
Coumarin is the basic structure of numerous naturally occurring compounds with important and diverse physiological activities. More than a thousand coumarin derivatives have been described, varying from simple coumarins containing alkyl and hydroxyl side chains to complex coumarins with benzoyl, furanoyl, pyranoyl, or alkylphosphorothionyl substituents. Coumarin and 3,4-dihydrocoumarin were nominated by the Food and Drug Administration and the National Cancer Institute for study because of the widespread use of coumarin in perfumes, cosmetics, and other products as a fragrance, continued interest in coumarin compounds as flavor-enhancing agents for foods, and the interest in structure-activity relationships of this important group of compounds.
