Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

WHO Says C-Sections on the Rise, But Shouldn't Happen Unless Medically Necessary

Cesarean sections save lives, but the World Health Organization says they shouldn't be performed unless they're medically necessary. They're necessary when the baby is in distress or in an abnormal position, or when the mother's labor has become prolonged, the organization said, adding that c-sections should generally only happen in about 10 or 15 percent of births.

When c-sections are performed in about 10 percent of births, maternal and newborn deaths decrease, according to WHO. But when they occur in more than 10 percent of births, there's no change in the mortality rates. Yet, C-section rates continue to rise in wealthy countries, WHO said. In the United States, 32.7 percent of births are c-sections, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  - ABC News
