The chance of being seriously injured at a park is about one in 24 million, association officials say, far less likely than being injured in a car accident or struck by lightning.” But The Times notes that a 2013 study by the Center for Injury Research and Policy at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus “revealed evidence of frequent injuries among children. More than 93,000 children under 18 were treated in emergency rooms for amusement-park-related injuries between 1990 and 2010.” Researchers were unable to compile amusement-park-related deaths, but “they estimated that a child is hospitalized once every three days in the summer from an injury related to a park, carnival, fair or arcade ride,” the story notes.

Cardall was born with a double inlet left ventricle (DILV) and had his first surgery in less of 24 hours of birth and parents were given the news that their infant son life expectancy was short. Cardall, at the age of 36 was the longest living person with congenital heart defect/disease in the state of Utah to survive and become a recipient of a new heart (Cardall, 2010). During those 36 years, there was time when the chance of survival was poor during illness, procedures, and complications; however, he was given the gift of life. Pathophysiology

Children at risk of dying every year due to zinc deficiency are about 450,000. Mild-to-moderate zinc deficiency may be relatively common worldwide, but the public health importance of this degree of zinc deficiency is not well defined.

Diarrhea claims the lives of approximately1.5 million children under the age of five every year– nearly one in five child deaths.
These are: Reduction of urinary tract infections; according to a research done by the American Academy of Paediatrics (AAP), circumcisions of males would reduce the chance of getting a urinary tract infection (UTI). The research studied 422,328 infants born in army facilities over a 10 year period. A UTI occurred in 3,129 (0,43%) infants during their first year of life. The number of uncircumcised infants who suffered from a UTI was tenfold greater than the number of circumcised infants. This clearly shows that the number of infants who had a UTI and were circumcised was way smaller than the uncircumcised infants.

It takes 0.5 pint of crude oil to make 1 nappy, 715 pounds of plastic and 4.5 trees to make nappies for 1 baby over these nappy-wearing years. Leaving aside oil, trees and energy used to make these, each nappy is only used for few hours before being chopped away and we throw away 2.5 billion of them a year. It also makes a large contribution to the landfills. Plastics of the nappies that prevent leakage could take up to 500 years to
This method can come with benefits; but with many consequences as well. The C section (as it is often called) is where the delivery of a baby happens through the mother’s abdomen. This type of surgery is usually planned beforehand which will be told by the doctor. A C section is needed in multiple situations.
