I was on vacation last week, so I didn’t get a chance to promote Healthcare Triage. First up:
In the United States, there’s a lot of worry about babies getting TOO MUCH to eat. Overweight and obesity among children is a real concern, and eating habits established in early childhood are a factor. There’s an idea that babies can direct their own food intake, and self-direct on how often and how much they eat. It turns out, babies aren’t that great at making these kinds of decisions.
Then news: Allergies and atopic disease are on the rise. Especially food allergies in kids. A HUGE new study has looked at how changes to the microbiome can lead to allergies.
And finally, the podcast: This week on the Healthcare Triage Podcast, we’re sitting down with Dr. Jonathan Fridell, organ transplant surgeon. He and Aaron talk all about how exactly organs get moved from one person to another, and I can tell you, it is FASCINATING.
