Mother died mainly occurs during pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum. According to the millennium development goal (MDG), maternal mortality rate (MMR) in 2015 targeted to fall to 102 per 100,000 live births.

"When the baby sucks the breast, the hormone oxytocin is released by the body and stimulates the uterus to contract and remove the remnants of dirt, including the placenta. Bleeding also be reduced, "said Chairman of the Maternal and Child Health Sector Management of Large Indonesian Doctors Association (IDI), Prof. Ali Bazad. It was proposed at a news conference related to the launch of Maternal and Child Health Movement Towards Achieving Millennium Development Goals and the 2015 National Workshop on "Non-governmental Organizations Statements in Maternal and Child Health 2015 Towards Achieving the MDGs", Wednesday (23/6).

Early initiation of breastfeeding (IMD), which placed the baby on the mother's abdomen and let your baby find her own nipples, go stimulates the release of oxytocin. With breastfeeding, maternal fertility will decline so to avoid a pregnancy within a short time interval. Thus, the opportunity to restore the quality of maternal health and infant care optimally.

Chairman of the Indonesian Lactation Center Utami Roesli the same occasion, said IMD and exclusive breastfeeding is a simple way that can be done uniformly by all the mothers in Indonesia. "This way is to accelerate improvement of the quality of maternal and child health without spending a huge cost, easy, and secure," he said.


Maternal and Child Health Movement Towards Achieving the MDGs in 2015 launched the Coordinating Minister for People's Welfare Agung Laksono. The movement involves nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and civil society organizations (CSOs), international,

national level, and representatives of government and nongovernmental organizations from 10 provinces with the worst child mortality rate. Agung Laksono said, among other MDG targets, decreasing mortality and improving maternal and child health quality they spelled out the need for further support.

Advocacy Director of World Vision Indonesia National Workshop Committee Chairman Asteria Aritonang said that although the health status of children in Indonesia increased by 10 years, the decline in child mortality tend to be slow. "If this situation continues, Indonesia could not be determined to achieve the MDG target in 2015, ie for infant mortality 23/1.000 and 32/1.000 for child mortality," he said. (Ine)

Drinking 'Fruit Juice' trigger Diabetes?

IN developing countries, the number of diabetes have increased singnifikan. No wonder, if Indonesia as one of the developing countries also have a number of diabetes patients is quite high.

"Diabetes is a killer disease of blood. Once suffering from diabetes, blood vessel disease can hit anywhere. Small blood vessels of the most widely exist in the kidney and eyes," said Dr Antono Sutandar, Sp.JP, FACC, FSCAI, FAMS, FIHA in media forum event held at Le Seminyak Siloam Hospitals, Pacific Place, Jakarta, Thursday (06/24/2010).

Dr Antono revealed, one compared to three Indonesian men have pre-diabetes. While for in America, people who develop pre-diabetes reaches 40 to 50 cent of the population. The cause of the spread of diabetes, one of them comes from food. It can not be denied, that the Indonesian tongue closely related to sweet-based foods and flour-based, which such a diet is the largest supplier of body vulnerable to diabetes. In addition, eating habits than eating the fruit juice can instantly become one of the triggers of diabetes attack us.

"And, that damage the market is fruit juice. When we eat the fruit, which in our stomach juices. When the stomach in the juice, he's already wasted calories 20 to 40 calories made for juice. Whereas if fruit juice, our stomachs are not stable," explained Dr Antono.

In fact, by eating the fruit of it directly, then the body will produce insulin is lower. What article?

"Carbohydrates in fruit it will release slowly. So the sugar into the blood will slowly enter. When he went into the blood, the body needs insulin production. When the body of the production of insulin, blood sugar down. But it was how much insulin needs fast food on the absorption in the body. eating fruit juices, insulin requirements are higher than eating the fruit, 'explains Dr. Antono.

Diabetes is a chronic metabolic disorder caused by deficiency of insulin or a decrease in the sensitivity of the insulin receptor. Insulin itself is a kind of anabolic hormones produced by beta cells in pancreatic islets. So what to do with the habit of eating sweet foods (including sugar) and flour-based foods?

"The more we eat carbohydrates that have been processed, the higher the need for insulin. Until one day the body can not produce more insulin. It occurs when diabetes. When insulin levels are already rising, and can not produce more, then the occurrence of diabetes," Dr Antono demolished. (NSA)[okezone]

He added that the results of research known generally there is no difference between the total calories consumed by the obese and normal children, but the problem is the selection of foods that diasup. For example too much consumption of sweet drinks or milk.

The main cause of tooth decay is an acid created by bacteria that exist in the oral cavity. Germs will produce acid when there is leftover food that contains sugar and flour, which is sticky on the teeth for a long time.

To avoid the holes in the teeth toddler, do not accustom children to drink milk from a bottle to fall asleep to sweet liquids will not be inundated teeth are too long. When the baby teeth begin to grow, teach children to brush their teeth. Do not forget, your child's teeth checked every six months.[]

Dogs Able to Detect Prostate Cancer

Usually done by prostate examination digital rectal examination. But there is now a new alternative, namely using the assistance of specially trained dogs.

Shepherd dog type Belgian Malinois which has a sharp smell trained for one year by doctors from the Tenon Hospital Paris, France to distinguish urine from men with prostate cancer and healthy men.

Dogs are animals that have a sense of smell 100,000 times sharper than human and prostate cancer cells is believed to be issued a special smell. Jean-Nicolas Cornu lead researcher, says that dogs are able to identify the odor molecules produced by cancer cells.

In the study the dogs are able to identify correctly 63 of 66 urine samples berkanker and healthy.

Nevertheless, the experts would not rush to conclude the ability of dogs to detect cancer, given the small scale study and further research is needed to prove it.

When later shown a dog can detect accurately, experts believe this method will be more effective and accurate than blood tests to determine the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) which has been the standard examination to screen for prostate cancer.

Own a dog known for its sharp smell. This capability has long been exploited by human being, among others, to detect specific molecules, such as bombs or reveal cases of theft.

Animals do have sharper senses than humans, such as a cat that can see in the dark, elephantiasis, which is sensitive and can detect other elephant footprints tens of kilometers away, and so forth.

Until now there has been no single party knows with certainty regarding the causes of autism that occur in children. Many of the issues that developing the cause of this disease and can not be proved true. Nevertheless, it does not mean parents can only stand idly by waiting for children to grow up until they found the boy is one among patients with autism.

Early Detection of Autism Symptoms

According to Child Neurologists Dr. Hardiono Pusponegoro SpA (K), the war is very important parents in an effort to detect early symptoms of autism in children. "Parents should be alert when in the early growth of infants began to show symptoms of autism," said Hardiono in the event "Autism Now" on FX Lifestyle Center, recently.

There are several symptoms of disorders in infants in the early years of their lives. Among these there is no babbling, pointing with a finger can not, or look less at the age of 12 months. Entering the age of 16 months, the children took out the words that are not meaningful, in contrast with other children as their age. Then at the age of 24 months, children austis usually not able to say a sentence consisting of two words that can be understood. Meanwhile, in every age, autistic children lose the ability to speak or social skills.

"These symptoms are danger signs (red flags) which provide information to parents that the child is likely suffering from autism," said Hardiono again. To ensure this, there are several actions that need to be done. The first step is the screening instruments assessed without further able to detect symptoms of autistic children. Screening can be done by parents, educators, and experts. Next, diagnosis by a psychologist and continued with the assessment that can be managed by doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, and teachers.

If the diagnosis proves the child develops symptoms of autism such as behavioral disorders, interaction, and communication, then the therapy should be done immediately. Behavioral disturbances in children with autism such as hyperactivity, tantrums, biting, pulling, damage, up to masturbation.

While disorders such interactions do not make eye contact, do not play with peers, does not share the excitement, and a lack of reciprocal social interaction. The communication disorders vary widely, ranging from delays to talk, not talking, impaired quality of talk or talk not long, the repetition of words or sentences, so to speak which can not be understood.

Providing appropriate treatment and education will improve the autistic child. "The longer I work with patients with autism, the more I am convinced that most patients do not need drugs. Rather good therapy and education, "added Hardiono. Drug therapy is given only if the child behaves like maladaptif aggressive, repetitive, self harm, sleep disorder or hyperactivity, or have other concomitant diseases for example epilepsy and seizures.

If positive children were detected suffering from autism, Hardiono explained, the need for therapy to help fit the needs of children. "As the integration therapy, floor time, behavior therapy and involves parents and appropriate education to help children cope with the situation in itself according to age," he said.

Children Education Specialists, Prof. Dr. Eric Lim, also stressed the importance of early intervention. This is an effort to prepare a special assistance program.

Benefits of fruits - Until now there was not a magic pill that could ward off deadly diseases as well as making slim. But there is another solution, something that not only create a healthy and slimming, but also taste good, namely a kiwi fruit.

Elisa Zied, MS, nutritionist and author of Feed Your Family Right, says kiwis are included in one of the 10 super foods (super food). Kiwi include multitasking fruit because they contain disease-fighting nutrients, taste good, contain fewer calories, plus making the skin young. Really super!

Kiwi fruit is often identified with New Zealand. In fact, the fruit skin and looks like a brown fur is actually originated from China and the new into New Zealand early 1990s.

The success of the kiwi fruit industry in New Zealand could not be separated from services Isabel Fraser, a teacher who brought home the seeds of the kiwi after visiting relatives in China. Kiwi seeds were then given to families Allison, who was wrestling in the field of horticulture. Since then farming in New Zealand kiwi fruit begins.

The original name is The Tao of kiwi fruit. New Zealanders think the fruit has a taste of 'gooseberry' and called 'Chinese gooseberry'. New fruit around the year 1959 was given the name "kiwi fruit" after setting the kiwi bird as a symbol of New Zealand.

Two types

In the world market today, there are two types of kiwi fruit, ie, green (green) and gold (gold). green kiwi Actinidia deliciosa using botanical names and kiwi called Actinidia chinensis gold. Slightly sour flavor of green kiwi and fresh. Medium gold kiwi taste sweeter on the tongue.

Vitamin C content in green kiwi 92.7 mg vitamin C per 100 grams, slightly below the vitamin C content of the gold kiwi reached 105.4 mg per 100 grams.

Nevertheless, according Fiastuti vitamin C content in kiwi green and gold more than oranges and papaya. Meanwhile its vitamin E content than mangoes and papayas.

In addition to vitamins, these two types of kiwi fruit is also rich in fiber is good for the health of the digestive tract. Not only that, the fibers can also be enough to keep blood sugar levels and lowering cholesterol levels in the blood.

Rich in nutrients and antioxidants
One of the benefits of kiwi fruit is a soft texture, delicious taste and aroma are distinctive and fresh. Yet beneath the hairy brown skin, kiwi is the most nutrient-rich fruit.

A study published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition showed that of 27 types of commonly consumed fruits such as papaya, mango, and avocado, kiwi apparently has the highest nutrient density.

Size nutrient density (nutrient density) is usually used to measure the dietitian nutritional value of certain food ingredients compared with other food ingredients in equal portions. Higher nutrient density, the better the quality of the material.

Kiwi fruit is also known as rich viamin C, A and E. The content of vitamin C in the kiwi fruit two times more than oranges. While the amount of vitamin E in kiwi twice more than the mango.

Vitamins C and E so we need as a source of antioxidants. According to nutritionists Witjaksono dr.Fiastuti, Sp.GK, one or two grains every day was enough kiwis to meet the requirement of vitamin C per day. "Women aged 19-30 years need about 45 mg of vitamin C per day. Meanwhile, in pregnant women increased to 60 mg/day during lactation and in need 85 mg/day," he explained.

According Prof.Made Astawan, in the book Nutrient Content of Various Foods, in addition to vitamins C and E, another antioxidant found in fruits such as kiwi-carotene, lutein, xanthophyll, flavonoids, and so forth.

Eat foods that contain antioxidants are believed to prevent dangerous illnesses such as heart disease, cancer and premature aging. One theory why someone might be old is due to free radicals. Oxidation process will also cause DNA damage that led to the emergence of cancer.

Antidote to free radicals that are known at this time is an antioxidant. Kiwi antioxidant capacity against free-radical compounds ranked third highest after the orange and red wine.

Antioxidants contained in the kiwi fruit is the most easily metabolized and absorbed into the body's blood vessels. That's why the food sources of antioxidants such as the kiwi is strongly recommended for those who want to be healthy naturally.[]

That difference comes from the way the body processes these two sweeteners. Both are made from fructose and glucose, but in the second sugar binding components to each other so take the extra step to metabolized. In a HFCS, glucose and fructose has been separated so easily absorbed by the body.

HFCS is not only found in sodas, but also on the bread, cereal, canned fruit, juices, jams as well. Research on this subject published in the journal Pharmacology, Biochemistry and Behavior, 2001.

2. Do not get addicted to sweet foods

This is because children need calories was greater than adults, that is for children under 3 years old need between 100-120 kcal/kg BW/day compared with adults who only need 35-40 kcal/kg BW/day.

But because kids stomach capacity is smaller than adults, then children should not be forced to eat in large numbers as adults. Thus, children should be fed in very small amounts but often. Like for example when adults eat three times a day, for feeding the child can be used five times a day.

For example with the following schedule: early morning breakfast with milk. By noon, give the kids a snack. After that, it's time for lunch and continued giving milk before nap time. Now, when the night, provide dinner and before going to sleep again give children milk. For a snack, a healthy mother can give, such as fruit or pudding.

The essential nutrients for growing children, including amino acids (essential), calcium, iron, DHA and AA.

If the child nutrition is not fulfilled, it will suffer from malnutrition. World Body menyinyalir, malnutrition or malnutrition plays a major role towards the child's death. At least 60 percent of the world's 10 million children die from this disease. While two-thirds, died due to errors in feeding. Malnutrition of children under three years, may cause permanent disturbances in the brain. "Or the child may also experience a lack of ability to think," said Sri.

Malnutrition can be caused by nutrient deficiencies or even excess. When a shortage, then in his old age will children will experience bone fragility or osteoporosis, body resistance becomes disrupted, as well as reproductive disorders that can lead to infertility. While malnutrition due to overnutrition resulted in children suffering from obesity, the risk of coronary heart disease, to diabetes.

Quite a spoonful of Iodized Salt

Deficiency or excess consumption of iodine can cause thyroid disorders. So how many doses of iodine consumption should we eat?

Based on international standards used in the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the maximum iodine intake for someone of about 150 mikogram (mg) per day. Now, to meet, according to Mulyadi Tedjapranata, Medizone Clinic Director of South Jakarta, can be obtained from consuming one to one and a half tablespoons of iodized salt.

But it turns out, though just need to consume less, there are still many people suffering from disorders caused by iodine deficiency. Mulyadi said, this deficiency usually occurs in people who lived in the mountains. "Based on international statistics, currently there are still 2.3 billion people around the world experience a lack of iodine," said Mulyadi. Unfortunately, in Indonesia, there are no supporting data.

Now, to meet the iodine intake, you do not have to fill it with salt consumption. You can get iodine from other foods such as seafood example fish, squid, and shellfish. Iodine is also found in other foods such as eggs, milk, and meat. Only, the content of iodine in the diet is not as much as iodized salt.

But keep in mind is, salt or any material that foods containing iodine should not be carelessly cooked. You see, if carelessly cooked it, the content of iodine can be reduced or lost. As a result, even if you eat salt or food containing a lot of iodine, you will still lack this substance. Finally, you get even just taste salty, without substance that benefit the body.

You need to remember, iodine is a substance that quickly evaporates. If exposed to sunlight, iodine in salt content of fast evaporating. Similarly, if the tangent to the other heat when cooked, iodine also evaporates quickly. In addition to cook correctly, iodine should be consumed early. Iodine intake is needed since I was in the womb because iodine is closely related to intelligence.

A child is potentially suffering from mental disabilities, if the mother during pregnancy and iodine deficiency. Just for information only, iodine is associated with the growth of the brain-forming cells, namely neurons. "Because of the lack of iodine, the growth of brain cells and causes stunted children are also mentally handicapped," said Mulyadi. (Cash/Sanny Cicilia Simbolon)[]

This was revealed from the research field of dermatology, University of Michigan, U.S., against skin cancer cream called Efudix ..

This cream is usually used to treat actinic keratoses, and also can refine rough skin and wrinkles, giving a brighter color, to remove the black stain on the skin.

"Cream the production of 'Valeant Pharmaceuticals' that heals precancerous diseases caused by exposure to sunlight for too long has triggered increased production of collagen in the skin. Collagen is what will disguise the wrinkles on the face," said Dr. Dana Sachs as a researcher was quoted as saying Dailymail.

Drugs Found for Skin Cancer

Jakarta - The researchers scored the first victory against melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. Found an experimental drug that can significantly improve survival.

"We do not have any therapies that have the possibility to live longer than at present," said D Lynn Schuchter of the Abramson Cancer Center, University of Pennsylvania, a specialist in skin cancer who do not have any relationship to the study or the drug manufacturer.

A drug called iplimumab It works by helping the immune system to fight tumors. The Federal Food and Drug Administration has promised to make a quick review so that the drug could be available at least the end of this year.

Melanoma is the most serious form of skin cancer. Last year in the United States, there has been 68 720 new cases and 8650 deaths from this disease. Worldwide, more than 50,000 people die every year due to melanoma.

Studies of skin cancer was followed by 676 people worldwide suffering from melanoma and has attended various treatments, a very sad situation. They were then given one of three treatments, only iplimumab, with treatment of other immune stimulation and immune stimulation treatment only.

After a two-year, 24% of those given the drug only one or a combination of live compared with 14% of those who were given immunity stimulation treatment.

"The average life expectancy about 10 months with iplimumab compared with only six months for other users, and there is an increasing possibility of living for 67% of users of these drugs," said study leader Dr. Steven U'Day from the Angeles Clinic and Research Institute, Los Angeles.

Doctors hope that this drug can provide more benefit when given early to people with this disease. As many as 10% to 15% of patients using iplimumab have side effects related to drug effects for the immune system. Most were treated with high doses of steroids with 14 deaths associated with such treatment. Although, this amount is very small compared to deaths caused by cancer.

This study was funded by Bristol-Myers and Medarex, Inc., a drug development company has purchased the Bristol-Myers last year. A spokesman said that Bristol-Myers has not determined the price, but the treatment is equivalent to the cost of other cancers that ranged thousands of dollars or more each month.

This conclusion was reported in the annual conference of the 'American Society of Clinical Oncology', Chicago and published online by the New England Journal of Medicine. [Mor]
