The Healthy Sidebar
Antibiotics cannot cure a cold - the 'common cold' and 'the flu' are both viruses (also called a viral infections). Anti-biotics only work against bacterial infections. It's not too late to have your child vaccinated again the flu.
Early Onset Puberty - A study conducted by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has documented that boys in the U.S. are experiencing the onset of puberty six months to two years earlier than reported in previous research.
Circumcision. While there are potential medical benefits to circumcision, the data are not sufficient to recommend routine neonatal circumcision of all boys. The decision to circumcise is one best made by parents in consultation with their pediatrician, taking into account what is in the best interests of the child, including medical, religious, cultural, and ethnic traditions and personal beliefs.
