Fairness or Cure – At Whose Cost?

Filed under: Unrelated — Celia @ 2:12 pm

Scene:
Place:Maternity Hospital
Anxious husband and parents wait outside the operation theatre.
Wife is having her labor pains and specialists are attending to her. After some unknown amount of time , the nurse takes hold of the new born that is relieved from its mother’s womb and pats it. The child smells its first dose of oxygen and begins to cry.

Outside:People waiting outside heave a sigh of relief and congratulate the new father.

Time:Past
Inside:The Doctor instructs the nurse to wait till all the placental blood reaches the child and then cut it.

Time:Future
Inside:The Doctor hurries up to cut the navel string to collect the placental blood even before it reaches the infant.He then stores it for further processing.

END OF SCENE.

Ever knew of fiction turning into fact? The above one would soon prove it.Even now, I don’t think how many of you people reading this would guess the seriousness of this post. Big deal,you would say. Who needs it anyway? and what difference does it going to make to the child? Read on for more facts.

Companies that need placenta:
1)GE
2)Anthrogenesis Corp
3)Mila Skin Care
4)BD Bio Sciences
Shall we add some local stuff now ?
5)Asia Cryo cell Pvt Ltd

and more

Use of placenta in modern medicine:
1)Cosmetics
2)Stem cells to cure deadly diseases

Effects of products containing placenta on humans:
1)Early Puberty in Girls
2)Possibility of serious diseases
3)Nu Bao

Effects that this may have on the child:

“Another thing very injurious to the child, is the tying and cutting of the navel string too soon; which should always be left till the child has not only repeatedly breathed but till all pulsation in the cord ceases. As otherwise the child is much weaker than it ought to be, a portion of the blood being left in the placenta, which ought to have been in the child.”

1)Cord Clamping
2)Petition Site
3)Early umbilical cord clamping
4)Not so fast, Doc

Are these facts or myths? Would it be possible for us to do anything about this?
If yes, how?
