Children fully inoculated against whooping cough become more susceptible to the disease as the vaccination wanes over time, contributing to outbreaks in the U.S., a study found.

In all fields of human endeavor, winning by cheating is losing.

In a competition, when someone cheats, he gets disqualified. The disqualification does not make the runner-up the winner. Rather, it reveals that the man who appeared to be the runner-up had in fact been the winner all along. In the race for the GOP nomination for president, therefore, Ron Paul won. Not only did my candidate win: the GOP has given the Liberty movement the greatest gift it could have given us.

The second phase of the bird flu vaccination campaign has started in Mexico, where nearly 11 million birds have been slaughtered to prevent the spread of the AH7N3 avian flu virus, the National Food Health, Safety and Quality Service, or Senasica, said.

Some 90 million doses of the vaccine will be used in the second phase of the campaign, whose first phase resulted in the use of 88.3 million doses of the vaccine, the federal agency said.

Wait, isn't Dr. Ron Paul out of the presidential race? Isn't it all tied up nicely in a bow with the Romney/Ryan ticket? No.

Why would the GOP be scared of Ron Paul but end up nominating him? I'll explain. Romney and the GOP have demonstrated both poor judgment and poor sportsmanship that might cost them by damaging Romney's electability among the Ron Paul supporters thus leading to a splitting of votes, which in turn, could cost the GOP the entire election. Dr. Ron Paul is still in the race for president and is a strong contender for the 2012 GOP nomination.

There's no shortage of gluten-free offerings in your pantry, but your body still doesn't feel right. Misleading labeling or cross-contamination are two reasons why you aren't reaping the benefits of your new diet plan.

You're sick and tired of being sick and tired ... and bloated and foggy-brained. An allergist or doctor tests you for food allergies and tells you that you should avoid gluten. You've been gluten-free for a while, but you're still experiencing some of the following symptoms...

With big money pouring in to defeat a November state measure requiring food companies to label genetically modified foods, both sides are gearing up for an airwaves war that is expected to pit farmer against farmer to win votes.

Political insiders say the "no" campaign's recent influx of money - it is up to $25 million, compared with the proponents' $2.7 million - shows that it is quickly mobilizing and will probably start buying air time for attack ads as early Labor Day. So far, Monsanto and DuPont, leading producers of genetically engineered seeds, collectively have kicked in more than $8 million to beat Proposition 37.

The study points out that children who have developmental delays or neuropsychiatric disorders are more likely to walk on their toes.

ST. LAWRENCE COUNTY, N.Y. -- Each year the USDA deploys hundreds of thousands of rabies oral vaccination baits to help stop the spread of this infectious disease. And on Monday, baits were spread across Northern New York, including all of St. Lawrence.

The baits are only a little bigger than a quarter. It's encased by a block of fish or dog meal with a packet of liquid vaccine inside. "When the animal bites into the packet it releases the liquid and they swallow it and become vaccinated in that manner," says Barney.

Every parent dreads it - holding the baby still while a nurse or technician pushes a needle into the tender flesh of a plump little thigh. The screams are bad enough - add the guilt at knowingly inflicting pain...

But what if there was another way? What if a little clear patch arrived by mail, one that could be stuck onto the child's back and then would dissolve painlessly? Baby's protected, no one cries and everyone is saved the time and expense of an office visit. Several labs are working to make it happen.

Tanzania's quest to improve the welfare of its children could come to an early end if government doesn't incorporate the rights of the child in the new constitution, says a local expert.The 2009 "Law of the Child" Act has failed to address the issues.

Tanzanian authorities have seriously overlooked essential arguments around child liberties according to her. "Not much attention has been directed towards the rights of children - this group deserves special attention and protection and I hope this will be incorporated in the new constitution," she said.

The success of any governmental subsidy depends on whether it increases provision or crowds out existing supply.

Universal preschool policies introduced in Georgia and Oklahoma offer an opportunity to investigate the impact of government provision and government funding. Using difference-in-difference estimation frameworks, we examine the effects of universal preschool on the supply of childcare providers.

The movie premiere is sponsored by the Hagers-town-Washington County Convention and Visitors Bureau.

LOS ANGELES - Internal documents from the Boy Scouts of America reveal more than 125 cases in which men suspected of molestation allegedly continued to abuse Scouts, despite a blacklist meant to protect boys from sexual predators.

A Los Angeles Times review of more than 1,200 files from 1970 to 1991 found suspected abusers regularly remained in the organization after officials were first presented with sexual misconduct allegations. Predators moved from troop to troop because of clerical errors, computer glitches or the Scouts' failure to check the blacklist, known as the "perversion files," the newspaper said.

They say the boy was taken there from his Berkeley home at about 4:30pm that day after losing consciousness. A post mortem examination determined that the child had suffered a number of injuries.

A Central Saanich girl who suffered severe brain injuries after being shaken by her foster mother's boyfriend as a baby is to receive $13 million in the largest settlement ever awarded for such an injury in British Columbia.

The girl, who has not been identified, was injured in 2008. A court later ruled that the man involved was not criminally responsible. She is now in the care of her biological grandfather. The award is part of an out-of-court settlement involving the Ministry of Children and Family Development and the foster mother's insurer.

Since the recession began, our advocates have been concerned that, as in past recessions, the number of children coming into care would initially decrease, but for the wrong reasons.

A less capable child protection system would screen out all but the worst cases. Later, after financial stresses took their toll on families, the numbers would increase as kids who initially had been screened out start to show up with more serious problems. The newly released figures raise some concern that this could happen. Last year was the first year in which entries into foster care exceeded exits since 2006 -- the year before the recession started.

U.S. Senator Mary L. Landrieu, D-La., introduced the Uninterrupted Scholars Act (USA) to improve educational outcomes for foster youth. Despite Congress passing the Fostering Connections to Success and Increasing Adoptions Act in 2008.

The legislation introduced today by Sen. Landrieu makes simple changes to fix FERPA and increase the educational success of children and youth in the child welfare system. Children and youth in foster care are traditionally among the most educationally at risk of all student populations. FERPA has made it difficult for child welfare agencies to obtain education records in a timely fashion.

Tameka Foster-Raymond says that Usher didn't care about his stepson (and her son) Kile, who was killed in a jet ski accident.

She said that he is only pretending to be hurt by the tragedy to get sympathy from the media and fans. Her lawyer filed new documents slamming Usher, who previously asked the court to delay the hearing due to his stepson's death. Usher said he was worried the hearing would cause "unnecessary stress and strain" for both himself, Tameka and their two young children "in the immediate wake of this tragedy."

Psychological child abuse is common but underreported in the U.S., the nation's largest pediatric health group says. Like physical and sexual abuse, psychological abuse can cause devastating and lifelong harm.

In a new report, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is calling on pediatricians to be alert to signs of such abuse in young patients. "Psychological maltreatment often occurs with other forms of abuse, but this isn't always the case," says co-author Roberta Hibbard, MD, of Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health in Indianapolis.
