July 2, 2015 — Chatting once more with public health expert Patrick Saunders-Hastings. This time we go over three studies that have been in the news lately, everything from whether breastfeeding makes smarter babies to whether your horoscope can predict your health. Oh and something about homeopathy. Here are the studies we talked about:
- “An open-label pilot study of homeopathic treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in children and youth”,
- “Association between breastfeeding and intelligence, educational attainment, and income at 30 years of age: a prospective birth cohort study from Brazil”, and
- “Birth Month Affects Lifetime Disease Risk: A Phenome-Wide Method”.
