But hidden towards the bottom of the article you learn molnupiravir might actually mutate healthy DNC by accident. How serious a problem is that? A team of researchers at the University of North Carolina studied the use of molnupiravir in isolated hamster […]
Dear Anna, Ever since I witnessed my nephew’s birth at age 16, I’ve been terrified of pregnancy and labor. The delivery was quite the ordeal: The mom’s water broke before she got to the hospital, and she didn’t have time for an epidural. She developed preeclampsia. They did an episiotomy and used forceps to pull the baby out. I recognize this is not what happens with every birth, but it was the one I was introduced to and I can’t unsee it. Now I’m in my mid-30s, newly married, and eager to start a family. I love kids and don’t […]

An alarming admission was found near the bottom of a recent New York Times article about pharmaceutical giant Merck’s new Covid drug molnupiravir. Approved by the FDA two weeks ago, the drug was studied on isolated hamster cells for 32 days before being given the green light. While the FDA narrowly voted to recommend emergency use authorization for the drug, France’s National Authority of Health on Friday cited the pill’s own lack of efficacy as it ruled it will not be used in the European nation. According to report, “A team of researchers at the University of North Carolina studied […]

The US is a dangerous place to give birth. The rate of maternal mortality—deaths resulting from pregnancy or delivery complications—and pregnancy-related illnesses are the highest of any rich country. American maternal health has declined dramatically since the 1990s, just as the rest of the world’s has improved dramatically. The data are still incomplete, but in the US an estimated 17 to 26 women die of pregnancy-related causes for every 100,000 births. This ratio is far lower in comparable countries: In the UK and France, it’s about nine per 100,000, in Germany three per 100,000, and in New Zealand 1.7 per […]
