100-Foot Asteroid to Buzz Earth Next Month

asteroid 2013tx68 graphic 
An asteroid as long as a basketball court will give Earth a close shave
next month — though scientists aren't sure just how close.

The near-Earth asteroid 2013 TX68,
which is thought to be about 100 feet (30 meters) in diameter, will
zoom past our planet on March 5. The space rock could come as close as
11,000 miles (17,700 kilometers) — less than 5 percent of the distance
from Earth to the moon — or stay up to 9 million miles (14.5 million km)
away during the flyby, NASA officials said.

"The variation in
possible closest-approach distances is due to the wide range of possible
trajectories for this object, since it was tracked for only a short
time after discovery," NASA officials wrote in a statement Wednesday
(Feb. 3). [Potentially Dangerous Asteroids in Pictures]

There
is no danger that 2013 TX68, which was first spotted in October 2013,
will collide with Earth on this pass, researchers said. However, there
is an extremely slight chance — less than 1 in 250 million — of an
impact on Sept. 28, 2017, and even lower odds during flybys in 2046 and
2097.
Small Asteroid to Pass Close to Earth March 5 | NASA

A
small asteroid that two years ago flew past Earth at a comfortable
distance of about 1.3 million miles (2 million kilometers) will safely
fly by our planet again in a few weeks, though this time it may be much
closer.

During the upcoming March 5 flyby, asteroid 2013 TX68
could fly past Earth as far out as 9 million miles (14 million
kilometers) or as close as 11,000 miles (17,000 kilometers). The
variation in possible closest approach distances is due to the wide
range of possible trajectories for this object, since it was tracked for
only a short time after discovery.

Scientists at NASA's Center
for NEO Studies (CNEOS) at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena,
California, have determined there is no possibility that this object
could impact Earth during the flyby next month. But they have identified
an extremely remote chance that this small asteroid could impact on
Sep. 28, 2017, with odds of no more than 1-in-250-million. Flybys in
2046 and 2097 have an even lower probability of impact.

Zika now sexually transmitted: CDC to Issue New Guidelines

Zika virus: first case contracted in US was sexually transmitted, say officials | World news | The Guardian
Officials in Texas have reported the first case of Zika contracted in the US mainland, and said that the virus was sexually transmitted. If confirmed, the case would be only the second documented example of the virus being passed between humans through sexual contact.
Officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed the Zika infection, while Dallas County officials said they performed the “public health follow-up” to determine that the infection was sexually transmitted.
In an email to the Guardian, the CDC also warned for the first time that pregnant women or those hoping to become pregnant should “consult with their healthcare professional if their partner has had exposure to Zika virus”.
Warning: Deadly Zika now sexually transmitted; Florida declares public health emergency - NaturalNews.com
According to a report by the World Health Organization (WHO), the Zika virus was first identified in 1947 in Uganda, East Africa. The virus is primarily transmitted by the Aedes mosquito, while the symptoms are very similar to those of dengue or yellow fever. In human beings, after a short incubation period, the disease manifests through fever, skin rashes, conjunctivitis, muscle pain, headache or malaise.
Although it looks and feels like nothing more than a cold for the normal adult, in Brazil, the Zika disease or Zika fever has been strongly associated with the rise of a potentially lethal birth defect called microcephaly. This results in an abnormally small head and brain in the baby, and appears more frequently in mothers infected with Zika.
Sexually Transmitted Zika Virus Case in US Prompts CDC to Issue New Guidelines - ABC News
After the Zika virus was transmitted through sexual contact in Dallas, Texas, officials from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have released new guidelines for travelers to and from outbreak regions.
The disease primarily is transmitted by mosquitoes, but in rare instances it has been reported to be transmitted through blood transfusions and sexual contact. The officials from the Dallas health department said that a traveler came back from a Zika-affected country and passed the disease to a partner.
Guidelines released today gives new information about avoiding sexual transmission of the virus.
Five things you need to know about ZikaZika virus was sexually transmitted in Texas, CDC says - CNN.com
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Wednesday updated its Zika virus guidance for pregnant women, advising them to protect themselves if their male sexual partner has traveled to or lives in an area where Zika virus is circulating.
"Until we know more, if your male sexual partner has traveled to or lives in an area with active Zika virus transmission, you should abstain from sex or use condoms the right way every time you have vaginal, anal, and oral sex for the duration of the pregnancy," the updated guidance says.

The update in recommendations comes one day after Dallas County, Texas, health officials, announced a case of the virus involving a patient who had sex with someone who had recently returned from Venezuela infected with the mosquito-borne virus. The CDC confirmed this as first known case of the virus being locally acquired in the continental United States in the current outbreak.

Fall of America: Record Number of Americans Renouncing US Citizenship

Record Numbers Renounce Their U.S. Citizenship - Forbes
Once again, the number of Americans renouncing U.S. citizenship has gone up, up 560% from its Bush administration high. In 2015, there were approximately 4,300 expatriations according to the published names of individuals who renounced. The name and shame list is published quarterly, with the most recent three-month total being 1,058. That brings the total to 4,279 for 2015.

​Record number of Americans living abroad renounce citizenship
For the third year in a row the number of people renouncing their citizenship or abandoning green cards has beaten the record set the previous year, US Treasury Department data reveal. The surge is likely the result of stringent US tax policy.
A record-breaking 4,279 individuals decided to call it quits with the US in 2015 in comparison to 3,415 people the previous year, according to a US Treasury report released on Friday.
The list of individuals deciding to expatriate is published on a quarterly basis by the Internal Revenue Service. The latest one contains the names of 1,058 US citizens and permanent residents that gave up their passports in the period from September to December.
PressTV-Record number give up US citizenship
The number of people renouncing their US citizenship or long-term residency hit a new record last year, according to official data.
A record 4,279 individuals cut official ties with the United States in 2015, marking the third consecutive year for record renunciations, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday, citing Treasury Department data.
The number saw an increase of 25 percent from the previous year, with a total of 3,415 renunciations, and a 42 percent jump from 2013, when 1,130 Americans gave up their citizenship.
Number of Americans renouncing U.S. citizenship jumps 20% in 2015 - Feb. 8, 2016
Eighteen times as many Americans renounced their citizenship or long-term residency in 2015 compared with 2008. Last year was the third record-breaking year in a row.
Unlike most other countries, the U.S. taxes its citizens on all income, no matter where it's earned or where they live. For Americans living abroad, that results in a mountain of paperwork so complex that they are often forced to seek professional help, forking out high fees for accountants and lawyers.

The burden has gotten heavier in recent years with the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act, which became law in 2010.

Record numbers renounced U.S. citizenship in 2015 - UPI.com
For the third consecutive year, the number of people giving up their citizenship or green card has topped the previous year. Last year, it was 4,279 people, and it's most likely due to newer, more strict tax policies.
The passing of the Foreign Accounts Tax Compliance Act in 2010 was designed as a tool to fight tax evasion in the months after the UBS AG Bank scandal, which revealed that a large bank could aid rich clients who held dual residency in the United States and elsewhere to avoid U.S. taxes. UBS eventually paid $547 million to settle the case.
U.S. citizens can be required to pay taxes regardless of which country they live in for periods of time. But the law also allowed the U.S. government to go after foreign bank accounts, which prompted many foreign banks to drop their U.S. customers. Eventually, some of the those customers just renounced their U.S. citizenship.

The Gods at War! Genetic weapons: Zika, MMR, Ebola

Viruses as weapons of mass destruction and the fight for optimum health
If someone wanted to design and target a gene specific to a particular population, it can be done, said Dr. Shabazz. “With gene therapy one of the most common ways or the easiest way to introduce genetic weapons is through viruses, they’re called viral vectors and that’s the way that foreign DNA can be used to go into your body and cause your cells to multiply and express this foreign DNA so that can give you any number of characteristics that are intended for whatever purposes,” said the Philadelphia-based physician affectionately known as “Doc from the top of the Clock.”
Bacteria, viruses and fungi should be looked at as foreign invaders but following the guidelines and principles laid out in Books 1 and 2 of How to Eat to Live by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad which includes eating one meal a day and fasting at least three days out of every month is what Dr. Akili Graham Muhammad prescribes to his patients as a guide to returning to optimum health. The Nation of Islam patriarch lays out guidance on curing diabetes, asthma, high blood pressure and other ailments that affect Black people in both books.
“We have to understand that if Allah blessed us with life, he also put on this earth what it is to take care of us and (these books) will give you the type of immune system where you have no worries,” said Dr. Muhammad who is based in Houston.
The most important thing for us to do, added Dr. Shabazz, is to follow How to Eat to Live and follow the Restrictive Laws of Islam which is a list of instructions and guidance given to Registered Members of the Nation of Islam by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. Those set of laws is also a part of our health plan, she explained. In her practice some of the female patients who suffer infertility is the result of Chlamydia, a sexually-transmitted disease, which can cause scaring in the fallopian tubes and obesity which causes hormonal disruption.

A Timeline Of The Zika Virus: Slow Steps, Then A Major Spread In The Americas : Goats and Soda : NPR
This map and subsequent maps reflect data available from the CDC as of February 5. Due to space constraints, not all countries are labeled.
The Zika virus has gone from an obscure disease to an international public health emergency.
Researchers have been able to trace the gradual spread of Zika — slowly for decades and then, in the words of World Health Organization head Dr. Margaret Chan, "explosively" since 2015, when it was first detected in Brazil. Now the virus has reached more than 20 countries and territories in the Americas. In Brazil, there have been 500,000-plus cases. Thousands of babies have been born in Zika-affected regions with the birth defect microcephaly (although a causal relationship has not yet been scientifically established).

Ebola victim in US’s family: why did white patients live while black patient died? - Telegraph
The Dallas hospital that treated the Ebola patient who died this week tried to fend off accusations that it initially turned him away because he was a poor African immigrant without insurance.
"Our care team provided Mr. Duncan with the same high level of attention and care that would be given any patient, regardless of nationality or ability to pay for care," Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital said in a statement.
Duncan first sought help at the hospital on Sept. 25 and was sent home several hours later with antibiotics rather than being observed further, even though he told a nurse he had recently returned from West Africa, where an Ebola outbreak has killed nearly 4,000 people.

In a national security memo dated April 24, 1974 titled, “Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for the United States Security and Overseas Interest,” Henry Kissinger, the Secretary of State under Richard Nixon, indicated: “Depopulation should be the highest priority of foreign policy towards the Third World.” Depopulation—to depopulate something means: “To ravage, to ruin, to reduce the population of, especially by violence, disease, etc.” Mr. Kissinger continued, “The United States economy will require large and increasing amounts of minerals from abroad, especially from less developed countries”—this means they are going to destroy the population of mainly Third World countries.
CDC Says Ebola Vaccine Only Works on White People
The Center of Disease Control, which is headquartered in Atlanta, has released a statement saying the trial vaccine for the deadly Ebola virus will only work on those with white skin.
In an excerpt from the statement, the government agency stated, “Early tests of an experimental drug, which would effectively combat the spread of Ebola, have proved successful only in those with white skin — We are working diligently to improve the sample to be able to help all those who are in need.”
The vaccine, which was developed by ThomasSmithCharles in conjunction with the BIP, has began a trial phase. The vaccine uses a strain of a West Nile monkey cold virus called ape multivirus type 5 to deliver benign genetic material of the West African strain of Ebola. The genetic material given to the patient is not able to replicate and poses virtually no health risk. The sample instead strengthens the immune system to fight off the virus. If successful, ape multivirus type 5 could stop the spread of Ebola.
According to the CDC, the trial was doled out 200 people, but only proved effective to those with white skin. Some scientists believe high levels of melanin may somehow be affecting the sample.
Fraud at the CDC Uncovered? : snopes.com
The idea that vaccines lead to autism is not a new conspiracy theory, nor is it a particularly uncommon one. A now heavily discredited study published in the medical
journal Lancet in 1998 planted a seed of fear about vaccine safety; and despite efforts to counteract the widespread concern among worried parents, public health officials continue to encounter growing public resistance to vaccination. And the CNN iReport in question was based on a video which featured William Thompson, a senior researcher at the CDC, seemly "confessing" to anti-vaccinationist Brian Hooker about a coverup at the CDC and included material such as a claim by Dr. Andrew Wakefield (who in 1998 published a fraudulent research paper claiming a link between MMR vaccine and the appearance of autism and has since been barred from practicing medicine in the UK) asserting that the results of a study proving a link between autism and MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) vaccinations had been "hidden" by the CDC:
Whistleblower Says CDC Knew in 2003 of Higher Autism Rate Among African-American Boys Receiving MMR Shot Earlier Than 36 Months - AGE OF AUTISM
A top research scientist working for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) played a key role in helping Dr. Brian Hooker of the Focus Autism Foundation uncover data manipulation by the CDC that obscured a higher incidence of autism in African-American boys. The whistleblower came to the attention of Hooker, a PhD in biochemical engineering, after he had made a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for original data on the DeStefano et al MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) and autism study.
Dr. Hooker's study, published August 8 in the peer-reviewed scientific journal Translational Neurodegenerationshows that African-American boys receiving their first MMR vaccine before 36 months of age are 3.4 times more likely to develop autism vs. after 36 months.
According to Dr. Hooker, the CDC whistleblower informant -- who wishes to remain anonymous -- guided him to evidence that a statistically significant relationship between the age the MMR vaccine was first given and autism incidence in African-American boys was hidden by CDC researchers. After data were gathered on 2,583 children living in Atlanta, Georgia who were born between 1986 and 1993, CDC researchers excluded children that did not have a valid State of Georgia birth certificate -- reducing the sample size being studied by 41%. Hooker explains that by introducing this arbitrary criteria into the analysis, the cohort size was sharply reduced, eliminating the statistical power of the findings and negating the strong MMR-autism link in African American boys.
Genes And Race Are Not The Same Thing : Shots - Health News : NPR
Genetics researchers often discover certain snips and pieces of the human genome that are important for health and development, such as the genetic mutations that cause cystic fibrosis or sickle cell anemia. And scientists noticed that genetic variants are more common in some races, which makes it seem like race is important in genetics research.
But some researchers say that we've taken the concept too far. To find out what that means, we've talked to two of the authors of an article published Thursday in the journal Science. Sarah Tishkoff is a human population geneticist and a professor at the University of Pennsylvania. Dorothy Roberts is a legal scholar, sociologist and a professor at the University of Pennsylvania's Africana Studies department. This interview has been edited for length and clarity.

Ethnic bioweapon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An ethnic bioweapon (biogenetic weapon) aims to harm only or primarily persons of specific ethnicities or genotypes.
Genetic Bullets - Ethnically Specific Bioweapons
One of the most interesting findings of the Human Genome Project was just how closely related all humans are and just what a myth the concept of race really is. The differences between individual humans are, in fact, much greater than the differences between groups of humans.
Many of those early findings were contained in a 1000 page tome published by Princeton University Press entitled The History and Geography of Human Genes. Stanford researchers, for example, came to the conclusion that the DNA of Europeans was composed approximately of 65% Asian types and 35% African types, making the so-called white race a hybrid of two older types of human DNA.
Israel is Developing 'Ethnic Bomb' for Growing Biological Weapons Arsenal
Israel is working on an "ethnically targeted" biological weapon that would kill or harm Arabs but not Jews, according to Israeli military and western intelligence sources cited in a front-page report in the London Sunday Times, November 15, 1998 ("Israel Planning 'Ethnic' Bomb as Saddam Caves In," by Uzi Mahnaimi and Marie Colvin).

Elijah Muhammad & Min. Farrakhan vindicated: What all blue-eyed people have in common - An ancestor born around 6,000yrs ago

What all blue-eyed people have in common - Tech Insider


The HereAfter Report: BLUE: Ancient people didn't perceive the colour because they didn't have a word for it, say scientists
The blue and black (or gold and white) dress that sweeped the internet last week revealed just how differently two people can see the world.
But it's not just about lighting conditions or optical illusions - evidence is
mounting that until we have a way to describe something, we may not see its there.
Ancient languages, for instance, didn't have a word for blue and scientists believe as a result our ancestors didn't notice the colour even existed.
The HereAfter Report: The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad Proven right again: Blue eyes result of ancient genetic 'mutation'
Frank Sinatra, Stephen Hawking, Marie Curie and Stephen Fry all owe their blue eyes to a genetic mutation that likely occurred between 6,000 and 10,000 years ago, researchers say.
Scientists believe they have tracked down the cause of the eye colour of all blue-eyed humans on the planet today.
The HereAfter Report: More proof Elijah Muhammad is right: Genomes document ancient mass migration to Europe 4,500 years ago.
DNA analysis has revealed evidence for a massive migration into the heartland of Europe 4,500 years ago.

The Truth and Reality of the origins of the Blue eyed White man

Allah Is Judging Today
Today is the day in which the God of Justice (Allah) is judging between man and man and nation and nation. To understand the present, we must learn of the past.
We are 4,000 years from Moses and Moses was 2,000 years after the creation of the Caucasian race, or 2,000 years after the fathers of the Caucasian, or White race of Europe.
This makes 6,000 years from the time of the birth or grafting of the Caucasian race.
In 4,000 years of the White man's rule they have practiced and exercised their power and authority over us as was divinely given to them.
The trouble is going on between the so-called Negroes and the American White people, who have always shown themselves to be the enemies and haters of their slaves, the so-called Negroes. This thing must come to an end.
The Day of America's Downfall
Since White Americans and the White race in general have deceived the entire world of Black people and their brethren (brown, red and yellow), Allah now is causing these people to wake up and see the White race as it really is, the created enemy of the darker people. As we see today, there is a general awakening of the darker people into the knowledge of self and the knowledge of their age-old (6,000 years) enemies all over the earth. The American White race cannot sincerely give the so-called Negroes (their slaves) a square deal. She only desires to deceive them.
Truths to set you free
A scientist grafted and made the White man an enemy to us. From the rebellious spirit of their creator, they have deceived, murdered and ruled the righteous, who are of the original Black Nation of the earth. This has been made very clear. Being born and nursed by the enemy of righteousness, you have fallen in love with them.
The history of the life of your fathers reveals an evil, murderous condition that they had to undergo. The treatment you are receiving now and have received should bear enough witness to the truth. Your love for this unalike people and their wealth which they have robbed you of and the majority of your people now makes you want to be one of them and desire to intermarry with such people, while history has recorded them as burning your actual living flesh at the stake out of the law of justice.
Separation and White fear of genetic annihilation
The Minister briefly discussed the origins of the White race. Characterized as a “genetic mutation” which resulted in lack of melanin in hair, eyes and skin color, this condition  manifested 6,000 plus years ago, according to scientists. In fact, many geneticists have published findings corresponding to the teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. Scientists are still unable to account for what they called a “dramatic genetic convulsion,” however it is no mystery to those who have studied Mr. Muhammad’s teachings on the making of the White race which can be found in his book “Message to the Blackman in America.”

Robots in warehouses for online shopping - Tech Insider
The Locus robot can zip around a clothing warehouse larger than the size of six football fields. It can also work for 24 hours, without a break for lunch or a salary.The new bot, created by Locus Robotics, just launched in its first warehouse: a Devens, Massachusetts space owned by Quiet Logistics, a warehousing company that fills online orders for both small startups and megabrands like Zara and Bonobos. The robots transport items that have been picked off the shelves by humans, and bring them to the front of the warehouse to be sealed and delivered.
"We developed a system where the robots do all the walking," Locus Robotics CEO Bruce Welty tells Tech Insider. "As retailers continue to exceed expectation around next-day shipping, they're going to look to technology to help them provide an even faster turn-around."

Makers of 'mindblowing' sex robot with virtual vagina swamped with orders - Mirror Online

White House rallies public, private efforts to prepare for devastating earthquakes

White House rallies public, private efforts to prepare for devastating earthquakes | McClatchy DC
Spurred by renewed fears of the fabled “Big One” shattering the West Coast, the Obama administration on Tuesday promoted stronger earthquake-preparedness efforts as part of a first-of-its-kind White House summit. Private foundation grants will fund new research at universities in California and Washington state, the Forest Service will streamline the placement of seismic monitoring stations and a presidential order will tighten standards for new federal buildings.
“While no one can predict earthquakes, the study of natural hazards and their causes and impacts has put us on the path to creating more effective tools to prevent these hazards from becoming disasters,” Interior Secretary Sally Jewell said.


The Gods at War! What Makes Rain, Hail, Snow and Earthquakes?
Snow and Earthquakes.” Seismic activity as we know it today with the moving of tectonic plates causing continental drifts and the breaking apart of land and sea actually began in the making of our moon 66 trillion years ago. In chapter one of “Message to the Blackman,” by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, we are given our fundamental study on the origin of the person of God with the question in Part I—“Who Is That Mystery God?” “For thousands of years, the people who did not have the knowledge of the person, or reality, of God worshipped their own ideas of God. He has been made like many things other than what He really is. … According to Allah, the origin of such teachings as a Mystery God is from the devils! It was taught to them by their father, Yakub, 6,000 years ago. They know today that God is not a mystery but will not teach it. He (devil), the god of evil, was made to rule the nations of earth for 6,000 years, and naturally he would not teach obedience to a God other than himself.”

Lead may be the biggest childhood epidemic in the U.S.

Lead may be the biggest childhood epidemic in the U.S.
Cases of bottled water are still being delivered to Flint, Michigan, but the lead problem in America doesn't stop there. Houses across the country have lead in the walls, and we've known about the damaging effects for a long time. David Rosner is the author of "Lead Wars," and also a professor of the History and Ethics of Public Health at Columbia University.
On the industrial use of lead:
It’s basically a product that was useful throughout the 20th century and unfortunately was understood to be a major industrial problem both in the 19th and early 20th centuries for industrial workers and then was identified as a childhood poison, that literally caused neurological problems among children in the 19-teens and 1920s in this country.
On lead in homes:
Certainly right now, the walls of the nation are the most serious hazard for housing that was built between 1920 and 1970 or so. All of those walls probably have lead. If we identified houses where children were living or where young couples were moving in planning to have kids, we probably could handle it fairly systematically but the problem is there are enormous costs. We have to make decisions about whether the financial cost is worth the cost to our children’s lives.  
Flint Water Crisis: Shameful And Deadly
“Poisoned water full of lead, Legionnaire's and coliform bacteria and who knows what other contaminate is living in it. Bad water. Smelly, discolored, bad tasting, certainly not pure.”
Mr. Woodson recalls advisories to boil water to make it safe, a GM plant that stopped using Flint water because it rusted parts, alongside 18 months of residents suffering rashes, hair loss, anemia, death from Legionnaire’s disease and lead poisoning and abject failures by the governor and state agencies.

How important is breast milk and delivery method to a newborn’s health?

How important is breast milk and delivery method to a newborn’s health? | Public Radio International

https://35mommy.files.wordpress.com/2012/08/latchonnyc-poster.gif“We
expected there to be a difference between the exclusively breastfed
babies and the exclusively formula-fed babies in terms of their gut
microbiome composition, but what we weren't sure about was whether the
combination-fed babies would be somewhere in between or if they would
look more like the exclusively breastfed babies or the formula-fed
babies in terms of their gut microbiome composition,” says Madan. “We
were a bit surprised to find out that babies fed both breast milk and
formula had gut microbiome that resembled that of the babies that were
fed exclusively formula, and that exclusive breastfeeding was associated
with a rather unique gut microbiome composition.”

It’s no secret
that there are profound short- and long-term health benefits to
breastfeeding babies. But Madan and her colleague Anne Hoen, assistant
professor of epidemiology and of biomedical data science at the Geisel
School of Medicine at Dartmouth College, are hoping to discover what the
exact mechanisms behind the health benefits of breast milk exposure
might be.

“We're just starting to understand, with research like
ours, some of the mechanisms behind why the biology of breast milk
exposure is important,” says Madan. “Our study today is simply defining
what exposures shape the microbiome in an infant’s gut in a healthy
population.”
Breastfeeding Benefits for Mom and Baby

Breast milk provides the ideal nutrition for infants. It has a nearly perfect mix of vitamins, protein, and fat -- everything your baby needs to grow. And it's all provided in a form more easily digested than infant formula. Breast milk contains antibodies that help your baby fight off viruses and bacteria. Breastfeeding lowers your baby's risk of having asthma or allergies. Plus, babies who are breastfed exclusively for the first 6 months, without any formula, have fewer ear infections, respiratory illnesses, and bouts of diarrhea. They also have fewer hospitalizations and trips to the doctor.
Breastfeeding has been linked to higher IQ scores in later childhood in some studies. What's more, the physical closeness, skin-to-skin touching, and eye contact all help your baby bond with you and feel secure. Breastfed infants are more likely to gain the right amount of weight as they grow rather than become overweight children. The AAP says breastfeeding also plays a role in the prevention of SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome). It's been thought to lower the risk of diabetes, obesity, and certain cancers as well, but more research is needed.
Benefits of Breastfeeding - Healthy Milk, Healthy Baby | NRDC

Breast
milk is a unique nutritional source that cannot adequately be replaced
by any other food, including infant formula. Although pollutants can
accumulate in breast milk, it remains superior to infant formula from
the perspective of the overall health of both mother and child.

Infants
are fragile and susceptible to disease, partly because their bodies are
not fully developed. They must be treated with special care and given
adequate nourishment. Infant formulas are able to mimic a few of the
nutritional components of breast milk, but formula cannot hope to
duplicate the vast and constantly changing array of essential nutrients
in human milk. Nevertheless, breastfeeding is often devalued, both in
the United States and abroad, and in many parts of the world it must
compete with relentless advertising by infant-formula companies.

Studies have demonstrated a number of important health benefits to breastfeeding. Among them:

  • Breast-fed children are more resistant to disease and infection early in life than formula-fed children
  • Breast-fed
    children are less likely to contract a number of diseases later in
    life, including juvenile diabetes, multiple sclerosis, heart disease,
    and cancer before the age of 15
  • Mothers who breastfeed are less
    likely to develop osteoporosis later in life, are able to lose weight
    gained during pregnancy more easily and have a lower risk of breast,
    uterine and ovarian cancer

Missing migrant children: 10K missing children for sex trafficking, slave trade | Examiner.com
Many of more than 10,000 missing migrant children are feared to have become victims of sex trafficking rings or the slave trade business. Europol’s Chief of Staff Brian Donald commented that the migrant children vanished in Europe during the past two years and that the unaccompanied minors became easy prey for criminal gangs that wasted no time in snapping up the kids.
Sunday’s report by Europol that thousands of migrant children went missing after having been registered with state authorities is a horrific aspect in the refugee crisis. According to a February 2 Euronews report, “Europol has alerted the authorities to an aspect of the migrant crisis ignored until now; the fact that 10,000 children have gone missing, and will be easy targets for human traffickers.”

Europol said thousands of vulnerable minors had vanished after registering with state authorities.
It warned of children and young people being forced into sexual exploitation and slavery by criminal gangs.
Save the Children says some 26,000 child migrants arrived in Europe last year without any family.
It is the first time Europol has given a Europe-wide estimate of how many might be missing.
Europol Official: 10,000 Migrant Children Missing in Europe
IOM and UNICEF data for 2014 indicates more than 23,000 asylum applicants in Europe were unaccompanied minors or children separated from their families.
But in the first 10 months of 2015, Sweden alone received applications from over 23,000 unaccompanied and separated children. Asylum statistics, however, do not account for all migrant children.
Missing Children Europe (the European Federation for Missing and Sexually Exploited Children) notes that while some children flee reception centers with a planned destination, others become victims of organized crime gangs.

Europe's police agency has confirmed figures shared with British daily "The Observer" that at least 10,000 children have vanished in the past 18 to 24 months since arriving among refugees from conflict regions such as Syria.
"It's not unreasonable to say that we're looking at 10,000-plus children," the agency's chief of staff Brian Donald told the newspaper, adding that 10,000 was likely to be a conservative estimate.
