"A group of Australian politicians has released a road map for the country to move towards legalizing mitochondrial donation... [This] could help women avoid passing genetic defects to their children through mutations in their mitochondria, the structures in cells that generate energy.

The technique uses a healthy donor egg to create an embryo with the nuclear DNA of two people and the mitochondrial DNA of a third. The embryo can then be implanted using in vitro fertilization (IVF)."

This article raises the much-ignored point that male fertility also declines with age. "as men age, they experience a gradual decline in their fertility. It's harder for them to father children and they are more likely to have children with health problems," ... "A lot of the genetic abnormalities actually are thought to come from the paternal side, not the maternal side." https://goo.gl/2q32CT

"administration of even extremely low doses of an endocrine disruptor — in this case, an endogenous estrogen — leads to epigenetic changes in a pregnant sow’s DNA. Moreover, these changes were also observed in the sows’ embryos, and similar changes were even evident after the offspring had reached adulthood." https://goo.gl/fz3voS

Gua sha is fantastic for coughs, colds and muscle aches and pains. I find it especially effective for pregnant women who are having trouble shaking a cough. 🤰
