The state of New York was already conducting anonymous testing for statistical purposes-- now hospitals will have to track mothers down and offer counseling after they leave the hospital.
The new policy is controversial, because it reveals not the baby's but the mother's H-I-V status.
Drug companies are only required to list active ingredients in medication-- but other inactive ingredients such as sweeteners and dyes can cause seizures, breathing problems or diarrhea in some children.
A study in the journal Pediatrics found that 90 percent of pediatric drugs did not list specific ingredients.
The academy recommends mandatory labeling of all inactive ingredients for over-the-counter and prescription drugs.
Also in the journal Pediatrics- recent recommendations that parents put children to sleep only on their backs to prevent Sudden Infant Death Syndrome has stirred interest in flatheadedness.
But researchers say simply alternating the position of the head from one side to the other will correct the problem and prevent flattening of one side of the head altogether.))

The Food and Drug Administration has just approved a new prescription drug which effectively relieves the pain and inflammation of osteo-arthritis.
But it's intended for a different set of patients.
(----------------)
VO-NAT


It's for dogs.
Osteo-arthritis is fairly common in canines.
It's characterized by pain, joint swelling and decreased activities-- just like in humans.
The medication is called Rimodil-- (Rye-Mo-Dil) and it's available by prescription from your veterinarian.
Although any dog can develop arthritis, it's frequently seen in older, larger and overweight pooches, or those who might have inherited problems such as hip or elbow dysplasia.
