A new study led by researchers at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and College of Medicine finds even moderate exercise during pregnancy increases a compound in breast milk that reduces a baby’s lifelong risks of serious health issues such as diabetes, obesity and heart disease.

“We've done studies in the past that have shown that maternal exercise improves the health of offspring, but in this study, we wanted to begin to answer the question of why,” said Kristin Stanford, a researcher at The Ohio State Wexner Medical Center’s Diabetes and Metabolism Research Center and lead author of the study. “Because there is evidence that breast milk plays a major role, we wanted to isolate the effects of breast milk on offspring health.”

The COVID-19 pandemic, which has accentuated long-standing challenges many families face, has put additional stress on parents that could harm the development of their children, according to a new brief from Rice University’s Baker Institute for Public Policy.

Study Shows Reduced Risk Of Pediatric Emergency Department COVID-19 Infection

Asymptomatic healthcare professionals who work in pediatric emergency department in a community with a low prevalence of COVID-19 and who undergo daily health screenings are not likely to be carriers of the virus, according to a new study from CHOC Children's.

Findings of the study, one of the first of its kind and conducted during California's projected peak of coronavirus-related use of hospital resources, shine an encouraging light on a topic where there are currently limited data available.
CHOC's study tested patient-facing staff at its Julia and George Argyros Emergency Department during a two-week period in April 2020, using a Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test for COVID-19 viral RNA.
