'Educational' TV for under-2s could stunt their development
   There is no evidence that television 
   programmes for the under-twos, marketed as 
   educational, actually help them intellectually 
   or socially, because they simply cannot 
   understand them. Watching television merely 
   gets in the way of activities that such young 
   children do understand, and do benefit them - 
   most notably free play and engagement with 
   other people. 

Miscarriages misdiagnosed
   A number of miscarriages may be being 
   misdiagnosed, resulting in the termination of 
   otherwise viable pregnancies.

Bumpy nipple smells guide babies to milk 
   You may not wonder why women have bumps around 
   their nipples but it has bemused many. Now the 
   mystery has been solved. Smelly secretions 
   released from the nipples of women who have 
   just given birth may help babies find 
   their mother's milk and increase mouth movements.
