    One of the secrets to rich milk production in lactation has been uncovered by researchers at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute. Their studies have revealed that breast cells develop two nuclei as the breast switches on lactation to nurture the newborn. This change begins to occur in late pregnancy with the generation of vast numbers of cells with two nuclei. The research was led by Professor Jane Visvader, Professor Geoff Lindeman, Dr Anne Rios and Dr Nai Yang Fu, from the institute's ACRF Stem Cells and Cancer Division, and shows that these cells with two nuclei disappear at the...

    Adolf Hitler once said, “Give me five years and you won’t recognize Germany anymore.” Well, we’ve given Barack Hussein Obama seven years and you can’t recognize the US Army anymore. The Obama Administration is literally carpet bombing the military on a daily basis with directives, memos, policies and doctrine that if they weren’t actually happening would be considered to be something out of a Kafkaesque, Gloria Steinem nightmare. Today, I examined a Memorandum for Record, dated September 20, 2015 and signed by the former Secretary of the Army, John McHugh. You remember Secretary McHugh, he’s the guy who dodged and...

    Today, my former boss, a retired Army Intelligence officer sent me a copy of a memorandum for record concerning the US Army’s most recent lactation and breastfeeding policies, signed by the new Secretary of the Army, Eric K. Fanning and dated November 10, 2015. My first reaction was to pop a couple Tums even before starting to read it. As I scanned the document, I realized how far the Army has fallen on its sword. The sword of feminism, the sword of lunacy has completely eviscerated the lean green machine, so that it is the US Army in name only...

    A Kentucky woman was charged with assault after she allegedly squirted breast milk into the face of a deputy, sparking online debate Sunday in the local media. Toni Tramel, 31, was arrested Thursday for public intoxication in Owensboro, WYMT-TV reported, but it is what she did next which has attracted headlines. As Tramel changed into an inmate uniform, she squirted a stream of breast milk into the face of the female deputy watching over her. A press release from the Daviess County, Kentucky, Detention Center, said that after the deputy decontaminated herself from the "bio-hazard", Tramel was charged with third...

    Dear Prudie, I am a first-time mother to a beautiful 11-week-old boy. Right after having him, I was visited in my hospital room by a "lactation consultant." This person pulled out my chart without asking me and said, "I see you had a breast reduction done 10 years ago. That was extremely selfish of you."

    New Study Says Diet May Soothe Colicky BabiesPOSTED: 10:08 pm EST November 7, 2005 UPDATED: 10:28 pm EST November 7, 2005 DETROIT -- Moms who breastfeed are often given all sorts of advice about diet, especially when it comes to foods that might make their baby fussy or gassy. Parents of colicky infants will go to almost any extreme to calm their chronic crybabies. A new Australian study of nearly 100 breastfed colicky newborns suggests eliminating common foods linked to allergies -- like peanuts, eggs, cow's milk, wheat soy and fish -- from Mom's diet may help reduce infant crying...

    Selling Breast Milk Can Be Lucrative NEWARK, Del. -- Buying a woman's breast milk via the Internet may seem far-fetched, but it isn't an unusual transaction. WBAL-TV in Baltimore discovered mothers selling their breast milk -- often for a hefty price. In many cases, transactions require only half of the payment up front, and some sellers even accept credit cards. Some states ban such sales by law -- but not Maryland. The television station asked Amy and Brandon Redmond why they were selling breast milk. "Some women can't produce breast milk, and I had a lot of excess," Amy Redmond...
