 If mom eats peanuts, baby might not be allergic to them

According to a new study at Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago, avoiding nuts during pregnancy increases the risk of the baby being allergic to them later on. They say eating nuts before and during pregnancy is beneficial for the child in preventing the food allergy. 

Burns from hot stoves are more of a problem 

Emergency room doctors say injuries from hot stoves are increasing. ERs are seeing about five Americans an hour with scalds or burns.Young children are being injured by stove tip-overs because stoves are not fastened to the floor. People age 60 and over are twice as likely to trip over a stove drawer or another part of the appliance.  

Researchers in Columbus, Ohio, used a national injury-survey database to analyze nonfatal stove injuries in the United States from 1990 to 2010. More than half of the injuries were caused by contact with a hot stovetop, followed by a hot stove door and a stove interior. Muscular sprains and strains were the most common injury in people age 40 to 59 who were using the stove. According to the American Journal of Emergency Medicine, most stove injuries could be prevented with proper installation, common-sense cooking attire and using children's safety gates.
