Effects of oily fish intake on cognitive and socioemotional function in healthy 8–9-year-old children: the FiSK Junior randomized trial | The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition | Oxford Academic

Effects of oily fish intake on cognitive and socioemotional function in healthy 8–9-year-old children: the FiSK Junior randomized trial | The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition | Oxford Academic

Oily fish dose-dependently improved cognitive function, especially attention and cognitive flexibility, and reduced socioemotional problems. The results support the importance of n–3 LCPUFAs for optimal brain function and fish intake recommendations in children.

Hypothesis of mtor and AMPK in infants and children

Hypothesis of mtor and AMPK in infants and children

According to a study conducted in the 1980’s, babies have between 2 and 28 days of no growth, then a day of strong growth.
Maybe mtor suppression is useful even in young children and is suppressed during those 2 to 28 days at which point the body switches to anabolic and AMPK suppression.
Maybe children and adults aren’t so different in regards to the importance of cycling between expression and suppression of mtor and AMPK.

We will need to confirm that study and it’s data. We would also need a study that could track mtor and AMPK in babies as they go, daily or perhaps every 2 days as the smaple interval.

Babies – a fantastic series on babies and nutrition

Babies – a fantastic series on babies and nutrition

“Babies” talks about the process and development of human babies. It follows new families for 1 year with close observation and correlates parenting bahaviours and tactics, human society aspects, nutrition, Microbiome and much more.

I’d recommended this to anyone wishing to understand nutrition in general but, especially of course, for babies.

Sleep habits and sleep characteristics at age 1 year in the ELFE birth cohort study – ScienceDirect

Sleep habits and sleep characteristics at age 1 year in the ELFE birth cohort study – ScienceDirect

The results of this study seem to indicate that sleeping in the same room as parents and habits of feeding to sleep etc may contribute to lessor sleep quality in infants.

“Mean TST was 13h36min including 2h54min of naps; 20% of the infants had TST ≤12h/24h. About 46% did not present SOD or NW, 16% had frequent SODs and 22% had NW >1 night in 2. Parental presence, feeding to fall asleep and infant sleep arrangements were frequent in infants with short sleep duration (≤12h/24h), NW and SODs. Non-nutritive sucking was associated with risk of NW, SOD and TST >14h/24h. Parental room sharing was associated with NW.”

A randomised clinical trial to evaluate the safety, fit, comfort of a novel N95 mask in children | Scientific Reports

Air pollution, such as haze or smog, is an evolving and increasingly significant problem around the world. A wide range of hazards of chronic air pollution in children include nocturnal cough, asthma, poor performance in neurobehavioral function, negative impact in cognitive development and harmful effects on brain development1,2,3,4,5. In particular, children represent a vulnerable segment of any population. They carry more risks of long term exposure to pollution over the course of their lives and are susceptible to acquiring chronic diseases in their developing lungs6,7,8,9,10,11. Use of masks and respirators can offer protection against air pollutants. However, the commercially available disposable particulate respirators, typically certified for surgical (which may only offer some barrier against larger particles) and occupational use, are mainly designed for and studied in adults. The test standards are specified according to adult breathing conditions and fit. There are to date, no masks designed for and evaluated in children.

Discordant transmission of bacteria and viruses from mothers to babies at birth | SpringerLink

Discordant transmission of bacteria and viruses from mothers to babies at birth | SpringerLink

“The maternal gut microbiome significantly influences infant gut microbiome acquisition. Vertical transmission of the bacterial microbiome is substantially higher compared to vertical transmission of the virome. However, the degree of similarity between the maternal and infant gut bacterial microbiome and virome did not vary by delivery route. The greater similarity of the bacterial microbiome and virome between twin pairs than unrelated twins may reflect a shared environmental exposure. Thus, differences of the inter-generation transmissibility at birth between the major kingdoms of microbes indicate that the foundation of these microbial communities are shaped by different rules.”

Opinion – While unsafe products should be regulated, an individual should be free to research and trial compounds that may or may not yet have shown clear evidence or clinical trials for efficacy.

Medial technology and knowledge is constantly changing and we cannot be held ransom to a slow moving TGA locking up beneficial compounds simply because they’ve not yet tested or studied them.
